🏆 2022 BIBA® Christian Children’s Winner!
This story is based on true events. The author, Susanne, was an immigrant student in her teens and English is her second language. Susanne is as tall as a baby giraffe, and so that is why Mrs. Zoe had to be the main character. She was often ridiculed for being so tall and for not having mastery of the English language. Throughout her teaching career, she aimed to make sure that no child was mocked for being or looking different. Susanne strived to make sure that each child was loved and accepted. The students who struggled either in learning or friendship skills were the ones who tugged at her heart a lot. On the morning described in the book, she literally thought she could not teach her class. Since her faith in Jesus is strong, she prayed and pleaded with God for help. As you will see in this book that is full of surprises, God showed up in a most fascinating way! God decided to answer her prayer using three students to be her ministering angels. An adorable Meerkat on the bottom of each page mirrors the story in a way that will delight children of all ages.
