The little Koala is a common creature. He is very fond of his place high in the tree and likes to keep things as they are. One day, the worst thing Koala can imagine is that his tree is falling. Now he has to let go. In this way he finds out that a change does not mean the end of the world.
Habit is nice and clear and pleasant. Change seems scary, but what happens when you step out of your comfort zone? In this impressive picture book, a wonderful feel-good story with an airy message is told: dare to let go!
A small koala is having a good time in his tree. He sticks firmly to the tree trunk and does not intend to come out of the safe tree, because on the ground it is very busy and noisy. When a wombat asks if he also comes down to play a game with other animals, he says he is too busy. But the little koala is afraid to come down, to the strange. One day the tree is visited by a woodpecker, who hammered so hard with his beak that the tree falls over. Once on the ground the koala sees how nice it can be there. In a beautiful, sensible way, the fear of the koala bear is worked out for all that is strange, resulting in joy when he eventually conquers his fear. The lively translation uses broken rhyme, which promotes reading. In the fine illustrations in mixed technique the emotions of the koala bear are underlined by the use of color. The layout is varied and also from a varying perspective the koalabeer is looked at, sometimes in extreme close-up, sometimes from below. Details within the illustrations may be a reason to talk further about the story. A very successful picture book. From approx. 4 years.
Let go, Koala! Let go, Koala! Do not stick to that branch. Release, let yourself fall. We will catch you! But Koala was afraid. He clasped the bark and he just held on even more firmly.
