Saniyah looks forward to all the interesting animals she will see on a field trip to the zoo during her first day of summer camp. But, on the bus ride to the zoo, Randy, one of the other campers asks her why her skin appears different. When she explains to him that she has a skin condition called vitiligo that causes her brown skin to lose color in some places, he begins to make fun of her and encourages all the other children to laugh at her too. Once the bus finally reaches the zoo, Saniyah avoids the other campers and goes off alone to cry. To her surprise, a giraffe begins to speak to her and introduces her to a peacock, a zebra, and a cheetah—all animals with spots, stripes, and different-colored markings. They explain to her that their differences are what make them unique and they tell her “be proud that you are different because that makes you special.” When Randy sees Saniyah talking to the animals he begins to laugh at her again, but this time, the animals scold him about bullying and remind him to be kind. Randy becomes ashamed of his behavior and apologizes to Saniyah. The other children laugh because they see Randy and Saniyah talking to the animals but become frightened and run away when the animals begin talking to them. In the end, Randy and Saniyah laugh together and become friends. Overall, this is a very attractive book with strong, but simple messages that young children will understand (they will laugh and cry with Saniyah), but it needs a little help with editing in some places. The fact that Saniyah and her father are the only people of color that appear in the book is a subtle parallel story that can be discussed with children as well.
