Johari The Great is an early chapter book with full-color illustrations. It’s an engaging story about a clever boy who is inspired by his teacher to use his imagination to write. So, he does! He writes a fantastic story! A contest and a mystery follow, and there’s a fun plot twist too! With a little humor and some help from his family and friends, Johari discovers his gift and the greatness he has within.
Most children’s books encourage children to read. Johari The Great inspires them to write as well! This is an inspirational story that celebrates diversity, the love of learning, the Black family and community, and promotes the author’s belief that all children have a gift within them, just waiting to be discovered. It’s up to us, the adults in their lives, to help them discover it–just as the adults in Johari’s life helped him.
With an emphasis on reading comprehension and vocabulary, the included worksheets enhance understanding and encourage family discussion. Johari The Great received the Literary Titan Gold Book Award and “Five Star Silver Seal” from Reader’s Favorite Book Reviews and Awards.
