The Wolf (Review 6)

The Wolf who wanted to change his colour: Being Unique


'I also like the meaning behind the stories in this series. A unique Wolf with his own views, willing to strive unceasingly for his dreams, is a character that subtly teaches children about good personality traits and character. As children grow, they learn to be courageous, independent and strong. After reading this picture book, I talked about its theme of self-acceptance with my child. I let my child know that it isn't important as to whether one is beautiful on the outside, and that inner character is the one true defining quality of a person. I taught him that it was best not to compare oneself with others, but to be true to oneself.'

'My son remarked that the Wolf had many ideas. It must have studied very hard in order to have so many ideas and to be able to solve problems by itself without relying on its parents. He wanted to learn from this! I smiled, comforted, when I heard this. A child's viewpoint will be different from an adult's. But this is why children are precious. Though he may not have absorbed the theme of the topic, he was fully capable of extracting his own lessons from it.'
