A whole class of kids review Jo-Kin Battles the It as a fun-filled, fast-paced KIDS book. Teacher, Ms Batar presented Jo-Kin Battles the It as a read-aloud book to class 4B of Fairvale Public School, Sydney.
I enjoy a special relationship with Fairvale Public School and class 4B as a literacy mentor, chatting to kids on their class website. I visited this school in October after I was invited by their school principal Mr Pitt, who I taught in Kindy at Fairfield West School.
What’s Jo-kin Battles the It (Super Space Kids #1) about?
Jo-Kin Battles the It empowers kids to live strong with perseverance, teamwork and brainpower using humour. I, author Karen Tyrrell is a winner of a mental health achievement award for my books and work in the community. HERE
“Jokester, Josh Atkins aka Jo-Kin wins the Super Space Kid contest alongside nerdy Sam Jones aka Sam-Wich. Their first Super Space Kid mission is to save the galaxy from deadly alien, the It. When the It kidnaps Captain Astra, it’s a frantic race against time.
Can Josh save Astra and the galaxy from the It … before it’s too late?”

I loved Jo-Kin Battles the It as it tells why kids are special…makes me imagine so much that I think I’m even in it. My favourite part was when Josh spent time in Super Space Kids School learning how to outsmart I-Bots and Crit-Bots.
