Reviews - What do customers think about What If the Zebras Lost Their Stripes??

delightful book on prejudice for children, if your family believes in God  Oct 20, 2005
As a whole, I would highly recommend this beautifully illustrated book on racism and prejudice. It is fun to read and an excellent way to address the topic with the youngest of children.

The only thing that I think should be mentioned is it does (briefly) include religious context that might not be appropriate for all families when it concludes that it is god who was smart enough to make the zebras the way they are. While not promoting any specific god, this does make it inappropriate for a public school setting or for families of certain religious beliefs.
Good Book!  May 24, 2005
I work in a residential facility with different nationalities/ ethnicities of children. The issue raises quite often and this is a simple lesson that because people "look" different doesn't mean that we can't like one another and be friends. The end is a bit unrealistic that black and white come together to form one, but I truly believe that people can come together and form a cooperative, respectful union without becoming the same...differences are good and there doesn't have to be conformity.
An important message for any age  Jun 12, 2004
It's never to early to teach your child the importance of harmony and tolerance and this little book is a great place to start. When some zebras lose their white stripes and others their black stripes, they must look inside themselves and each other to learn to get along.

I especially appreciated the very last page which placed the zebras with many children of different races and nationalities so that my 5-year old and I could talk about the differences in people, too.

Awesome!  Mar 16, 2001
My 5 year old loves this book and it has a very positive message!
Top Priority Message  Apr 4, 2000
What If Zebras Lost Their Stripes gives you a perfect occasion to open young minds to how adults of different colors and nationalities -- and kids -- should think about their diversity. With just a little thought, kids will get this top priority message instantly. A great contribution.
