Pinduli: I'm OK Just The Way I Am

Pinduli is more than a shy hyena. She is author Janell Cannon's vehicle to illustrate a valuable social lesson for youngsters. Her confrontations with various animals who criticize her appearance create self doubt. The outcome is less important than the process of discovering that she is, indeed, just fine the way she is. Children will quickly relate to the story and, hopefully, learn to accept themselves as they are.

This social lesson is camouflaged with colorful pages and appealing graphics. At the back of the book are facts about hyenas and other animals featured in the story, adding real science to the reading experience.
A final notation is due in regards to this book. Because the entire presentation deals with animal life, the story is easily adaptable to any culture. Few children's books can claim such universal comprehension--a fact which merely caps Cannon's accomplishment in writing this outstanding story.
