    Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers Favorite

    "Zippy's Big Difference," written by Candida Sullivan and illustrated by Jack Foster, is an excellent story that is geared for children, but will teach both children and adults valuable lessons. Zippy prays that the rain will stop and the clouds will go away. However, he is dismayed to see white all over the ground as he believes the clouds have fallen from the sky. Zippy asks his friends if a prayer can be cancelled, but then he is told that the white on the ground is really snow. However, this leads to a discussion about prayer as well as God having a plan for each and every person.

    This book is a short children's book; however, this small book is filled with so much! Zippy learns that one's heart needs to be in the right place while praying instead of just praying for selfish things all the time. Zippy also realizes that God does not make mistakes and he was created by God; therefore, there is a plan and a purpose for how Zippy was created, all white without black stripes like "normal" zebras are created. This leads to Zippy's friends recognizing the differences among them and their uniqueness as being part of God's plan for their lives. Zippy learns to accept himself as part of God's creation and plan. I loved this book and I am looking forward to sharing it with children as it will help children to recognize their uniqueness and their place in God's plan and how loved they are. The illustrations that go along with this story are excellent as well and they will catch the reader's attention.
