Mari Jo's review
Sep 07, 2011
Promotes understanding of physical size, appearance, and touches on teasing and bullying through the eyes of a small warthog. I especially liked the large, colorful pictures that drew the reader into the story. The Swahili pronunciation guide at the end of the book was an added bonus. Hopefully kids who read the book will begin to understand the importance of liking and being kind to everyone, not just people who look like us, or live in a certain place. You could also do a nice interactive activity to make drums out of empty oatmeal cardboard boxes for fun too; this could be a nice Art class project to combine with the book reading.
