Kolo and the Mighty Mangoes
On moving to a new village, football-mad Kolo joins the Mighty Mangoes Football team, a group of very different boys, but all united by their love of football. With the Cup tournament all to play for, Kolo has to navigate through many challenges and many highs and lows as the Mighty Mangoes seek to lift the trophy for the first time.
Friendships are tested, characters are challenged, and lessons are learnt as Kolo and the Mighty Mangoes seek to achieve their goal.
Filled with engaging and often hilarious characters and situations, Kolo and the Mighty Mangoes encourages the reader to imagine their own responses and decision making, with questions at the end of each chapter to stimulate thoughts and discussion.
A fun, interactive and thought provoking tale for children. My 9 year old thoroughly enjoyed reading this and answering the questions at the end of each chapter. Would highly recommend!
This is a great story with engaging characters, and I often found myself laughing out loud! The story encourages the reader to examine their own behaviours as we follow Kolo and his football friends. Although it is primarily written for children, the questions at the end of each chapter can help us all to think about the kind of person we want to be. This book left me wanting more of the same - I can't wait to find out what happens to Kolo and the Mighty Mangoes next!
Loved this book. Very well written in an engaging and warm tone. Brilliant educational resource which makes learning fun.
