Format: Hardcover
I am an education student for middle childhood education currently taking a concepts class in reading. Because of this class I find myself buying young adult literature. I had never read anything by Potok before this, but will be sure to after this. Each story is short and easy to read, yet at the same time very thought provoking. A must read for todays youth as well as their parents. I don't wish to reveal any details, read for yourself.

I read a lot, but very few of the books I have read have touched me the way this one did. The varied stories kept the book interesting because the subjects kept changing. Some of them I felt I could relate to and others I couldn't, but I know people who it does relate to and it helps me understand more about them. This is definatly one of the best books I have read.

Realism at it's finest 10 Feb. 2001
By "sarakay54" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was truly surprised when I finished reading this. It was very realistic and heartwrenching stories. There is a true tone to each and every story. You could see yourself in the stories and they were easy to relate to. Young adults would be able to relate to the characters and the situations that they find themselves in. Each problem that the characters go through could happen everyday in society. It was refreshing to read a book for young adults that models appropriate behavior. Great book.

Good For Class Discussions 3 Feb. 2005
By Jennifer R. Mckenna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Zebra and Other Stories by Chaim Potok is a great way to introduce students to voice and author. Each story presents a unique psychological insight to the characters, and possibly the author's own feelings about adolescent crises.

I especially enjoyed "Moon," which highlighted the disconnection many adolescents experience with their parents. The main character also undergoes a transformation, through the use of his music, which is an interest and need many adolescents identify with.

Though the stories left me with way more questions that answers, and a bit of confusion, I think Potok intended this for discussion purposes. The stories touch on very sensitive subjects, and can be a good way for students to be introduced to how we can discuss these subjects respectfully.
