Nassir's White Coat
When Nassir, an albino gorilla with a pure white coat is born, the gorilla community does not know what to do. Frightened at how "different" Nassir is to the rest of the gorillas, poor Nassir is shunned by everyone but his mother. But, when Nassir displays an act of courage, his community comes to realize Nassir is just like them. 

A wonderful story of acceptance and diversity, beautifully illustrated by Rebecca Fischer.

“a fantastic book for children to understand about…race and racism.” 
— All Books Great and Small
“I thought that this book was superb. It touches on racism and discrimination due to someone looking different—the story is told very well and it has a really nice natural flow to it. It covers a tough subject but it is pitched at just the right age…it really is a positive story. The illustrations in the book are lovely and they really brought the book to life…very highly recommended!”
