"The meaning of being special is to be distinguished, or different from what is common or ordinary. To be extraordinary! Sam was different from the other pets in his neighborhood because he didn't have a tail. That difference made him feel he was lacking what everyone else had, and that made him sad. But, one day they discovered it wasn't that he was lacking at all. He was a rare kind of cat, unlike any other, and that didn't make him just different, it made him special! This story shows that we all have basic structures that identify us in common ways, but these common traits should never define who we are." -- Darleen Wohlfeil, Children's Bookwatch: May 2018
