Sylvain and Jocosa tells the beautiful story of two friends, whose love is
so deep that they are lifted out of their senses where they neglect their
daily duty to tend to a fountain. As a result of this neglect the fountain
raises up into a massive rushing river, ever widening, that separates
the two friends, pushing them farther and farther apart.
They are relieved eventually from this terrible fate by a special being
that watches over them. Afterwards, they have gained great wisdom
regarding the importance of tending to life's small duties, whilst
remaining thankful for the simple pleasures the world has graced
This book also has the exciting element of a short fable folded within the
larger tale. Together the two stories weave a rich fabric of pictures for
the soul, where the metaphors will surely come alive and occupy the
imagination of all children who take up the task of reading them.
Written and illustrated by class teacher Kelly Morrow, Sylvain and Jocosa
is one of four introductory readers. The author is a trained reading
specialist and has used her skills to provide young children with
adequate material as they take up the wonderful adventure
of learning to read.
