SUMMARY: Zane the Zebra doesn't do things in the same way as other children in school. Others paint with their hooves, he uses a paintbrush. Instead of studying a planet, he creates his own. He feels different from the other children and asks his mother, "How come all anyone sees is my autism stripe?" Then his mother tells him about all his other good stripes she sees. Then Zane is able to love himself again.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are very colorful, nicely detailed, and frankly just plain beautiful. Children will love their creativeness and uniqueness.

REVIEW: I loved this extremely creative and unique story using beautiful zebra stripes to describe personality traits. It depicts some autism traits in a gentle manner. I love how mama zebra wraps her love around Zane and makes him feel so good about himself. There is a guide at the back regarding autism.
