I was given a copy to review.

This is the first hardcover children book I have reviewed. It reminded me of the Dr. Seuss books I used to read.

If you would like a book to help teach your child about self-esteem this book is for you. Sam, a kitten, finds himself with his newly adopted family and a boy named Alex. He then meets other cats in his backyard, a Persian cat, and two tabby cats. Sam knows they’re different from him and that makes him feel bad. I mean Sam is the only cat without a tail. Things change when Sam meets Aunt Marsha. You learn how this meeting improves Sam’s self-esteem. You’ll also learn some other ways to improve your own child’s self-worth. A great book to read at bedtime or any time. The illustrations are also really great.

I spent more time rewriting this review than any other review I have written to date.

Alabama Oh is about a little girl growing up in a town where everything is painted beige. I think it a metaphor.

Alabama is a black girl. I say this because her skin color plays an important part in the book. Throughout the book, Alabama seems to have trouble, mostly with white people because she is different. Her teacher is no exception. In fact, after the teacher meets Alabama’s parents, Alabama tells her parents “she doesn’t like things that are colorful and people who are different”.

I think the lesson of the book was meant to be that all people are different but I am unsure as it did not come across very well. I did like the illustrations.
