Zen the Zebra My #FridayReads by SwordPen Publishing

#FRIDAYREADS

Let’s celebrate making it through another week by sharing our #FridayReads. Here’s two I’m reading today:

Zen the Zebra by William Tellem

ZentheZebra

 

Zen the Zebra is a delightful morality tale of a zesty zebra named Zen (see what I did there?) who feels great about himself, regardless of what others say.  I don’t want to spoil it for you but let’s just say he has to prove himself and in the end everyone wins! Isn’t this the kind of uplifting tale kids of any age need? No matter what you look like, we’re all still the same at heart? Whatever your bottom line is for the moral of this tale, it’s a great one.

And now, I want a zebra too (I’m channeling that girl from Willy Wonka who stomped her feet cuz she wanted a goose that laid golden eggs)!

I don’t know where I’d put it and I don’t think my beloved pooch would care for it, but whatever, he’s so cute!

And speaking of Bailey, remember all those times your little one asked you if you loved them? It wasn’t too long ago when my littles asked me the same question!  Here’s a book that describes a similar conversation with a father and his young son.

Of Course I Love You! by Zev Lewinson

To be sure, the only little in my house right now is Bailey, and maybe in dog years he’s 56 but he’s still my baby! Anyway, he and I read Of Course I Love You! together.  As the father tells his son, “I’d wrestle an alligator for you…”

What’s your #FridayReads?
