Synopsis from GoodReads:The Sun Zebra, is best described as a children's book for grownups. Its aim is to encourage us to discover (or rediscover) the amazing things that children and their magical carefree world can teach us, even as we try to teach them about the harsh realities of our own. The book is a collection of five stories that follow the "adventures in living" of an unusual little girl named Nell, her mother Rhonda, and Nell's father who is the narrator of the stories. . . .

My Take:Sun Zebra by Rolando Garcia is a charming little anthology written by a father enchanted with his young daughter, an exploration into the vibrant world of a child's imagination. Only 66 pages long, it's a quick read as we encounter with little Nell a family farm awash in a vibrant sunset; a aeronautically challenged cicada, a balloon and a kindly ornithologist; a bold and intrepid squirrel invoking Edgar Allen Poe; a Charlie Brown Christmas tree seemingly outshone by the competition; and an artist in a park particularly tuned in to the world of fairies. Each experience provides Nell a new opportunity to teach her parents (and us) important lessons in life, or, at the very least, inspire contemplation in daughter and introspection in dad.

A note from Mr. Garcia at the end of his book says it all:
Everything in this book is a blend of fact and fiction. Everything, that is, except the zebra. The zebra is real, and it is out there waiting for you. When children take you by the hand to search for it, I hope you have the patience and the vision to help them find it.Bottom line: For those moments now and again when you just need a lift, The Sun Zebra will leave a smile on your face every time. It's perfect to read aloud to a friend.
