Description of "To the sacred valley with Koko"


Many of us have had a teacher that we will never forget. Their lessons have left a lasting imprint on our memories, not just for their clarity, but also how they engaged the students. The mystery novel, “To the Sacred Valley with Koko” is written for students from the sixth to twelfth grade. It is a blend of a gripping tale with scientific concepts in medicine and the life sciences to stimulate learning through entertainment.

The four attributes that stand out in the novel are:
2) current ideas in MEDICINE and LIFESCIENCES are contextually integrated into the story,
3) beautifully hand-drawn cartoon illustrations of scenes in the story, and
4) sketches that bring life to scientific concepts.

"To the Sacred Valley with Koko” is a balanced mix of storytelling and discussions on modern concepts in the life sciences to encourage scientific curiosity.
