Meet Ray, a young boy with autism, who has a lot of questions about being different. As his safari joins him with Rosie – a Pink Hippo who knows a lot about being different, and TLC (the Tender Loving Crocodile), Ray soon learns that differences are to be celebrated!
"I am really excited this book is now available in audio format for an added bonus while driving kids around town! I also love that the lead character Ray is played by someone who actually has a diagnosis, not an actor pretending to have a disabilty. This shows us all that we can really achieve our dreams despite our unique challenges."
"I would recommend "A Different Kind of Safari" by Helen C. Hipp for people who like adventure and inspirational stories. My favorite character was Ray with his everlasting determination to complete his quest for happiness."
"A Different Kind of Safari is not only a good book, but a great story! It is not only for caregivers, teachers and parents, but for anyone who has ever felt out of place. A pink hippo named “Rosie” and her friend “Ray” take a journey and explore their similarities and differences on the river of life. Self- acceptance and the acceptance of others is exquisitely conveyed in a fresh, FUN way through this sweet tail. It is a prize for all libraries."
