A Different Kind of Safari

A Different Kind of Safari

A Different Kind of Safari, by Helen C. Hipp, appears to be a light easy read. But when you think about its message, it isn’t so light after all.  Ray is shy, lonely and has a hard time talking to other people. He is unhappy because he feels different. However, when he goes on his safari, he learned that being different is okay. And he learned not to judge people or animals by their looks, but rather to get to know them first. This is a great lesson in any society and for both the young and not-so-young.

I found the format of the text and the pictures a little unusual. It doesn’t fit either the “standard” picture book or chapter book formats. However, it made me wonder whether that decision  was intentional, to match the subject of the book. Younger children may need an adult to help them reach the deeper meaning of the book. Nevertheless, this book is excellent for both teaching and entertaining.
