Excellent! The thing I liked most about it is that zigzag is a real character with whom readers can empathize. The book is sensitive and the character is both individual and universal. An excellent book for young readers with illustrations that children will connect with immediately. -Steven Palmieri, Teacher/Administrator

"This Children's Book teaches little kids compassion and acceptance of diversity in a very kid friendly way, understandable to small children, with simple yet catchy visual art with it. In a world where there is a lot of division, it is important to teach children to embrace diversity and to know that we all are together in this life, now. Thank you Deborah for the positive impact you have been making in our world. -Daniela Kunz
