Summary: Poor Andrew is feeling very blue, all the other giraffes are very spotty but he is as white as can be. He does not have any spots, you see! He keeps seeing spots wherever he goes… One spot, two spots, three spots, Four! And many, many, many more. “Where did you get your spots?” he asks. Join Andrew as he discovers how the ladybug, the leopard and the owl came to have spots and discovers that spots often appear when you are least expecting them!
This is an adorable book about coming into your own and of acceptance of self.
The giraffe, Andrew sees himself as different as he has no spots and wants to be like other giraffes and spotted creatures. He goes on a mission to finds out how to get some spots too.
Isn't this what we all do at some point in our lives? We are not acceptant of who we are so we go seeking. Eventually, over time, we become the people we are supposed to be. This book shows children that if they are patient, they will too become who they are supposed to be.
If there is anything I would have to say negative about this book, it is that it seemed to end abruptly but this does not take away from the book as a whole.
I loved the nice and bold illustrations, they make you feel like you are out in the safari with the animals in their natural habitat.
