Words from the Author

Every So Often A Zebra Has Spots, is a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) book for children to begin deep discussions on diversity, acceptance, and kindness ... but in a simplistic, fun, and beautiful way. Using animals that are "different," you are provided with an opportunity to talk to your children about the beauty in being different. This book has been used in schools by both teachers and school counselors to discuss topics such as Autism Acceptance, Down Syndrome awareness, transgender, homosexuality, divorce, and more. The additional bonus pages at the back of the book provide parents and teachers with the additional tools to have open and positive discussions.

Talking about Differences with our Children

Sitting down to talk about differences with your children and students can be a challenging conversation… But it shouldn’t be. My two books, The Zoo’s Big News and Every So Often A Zebra Has Spots, are a gift from me to you to simplify the process. I am trying to provide parents, elementary teachers, preschool teachers, school counselors, and all those reading my books, a simple way to bring light to the beauty of being different.

Every single one of us is unique and one of a kind. But why do we judge others when they “look different,” “speak differently,” or “love differently?” Why are people afraid of someone who looks or acts different than them? There is no simple answer to that but I can say that much of the fear comes from not knowing.

This leads me to why I write books that inspire conversations about being different. I want children to ask those questions and I want parents and educators to know how to respond. Children need to know that ALL living creatures deserve respect and love. Children need to know to be kind to everyone and welcoming to everyone. Friends come in all sizes, colors, and shapes.

A fun, creative, and easy way to discuss equality, antiracism, gender, sexuality, prejudice, special needs, and differences.
