'We All Have Spots' is a delightful tale of a naive, young Leopard named Logan, who oversleeps and wakes up alone. He starts his day trying to catch up to the other Leopards, and along the way encounters other animals, drawn to them because they all have spots, like him. His search takes him outside his normal territory, broadening his horizons and showing him a bigger world than the one he knows. After finding the other Leopards, Logan remains interested in the other animals he met. He realizes it's their similarities that are important, not their differences, and those similarities are what brings them all together as friends. So, ultimately, Logan starts out his journey trying to catch up with the other Leopards, and ends up surpassing them.

This is an adorably sweet book about a leopard trying to find friends and his own identity . He visits a range of animals and sees the differences in their identities eventually finding other leopards . The illustrations are wonderful and the text is succinct but full of lovely vocabulary . A great bedtime story or perfect for early years - year 1 . Highly recommended and one I will certainly share this with fellow teachers and friends with young children

Leopard oversleeps and finds himself alone, so he goes out looking for those who are like him. He meets many who are similar, but eventually he does find his own family. As a children's book it is delightful but there is much more to this book that is so well suited to ESL readers who want to be included in the place where they now live. A very good book!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Indelible/IBPA via NetGalley. Thank you!

What animals have spots.? In this book, the spotted animal is a leopard. When he finds himself alone, he decides to go out to find other leopards. On his way, he met several other animals. He finds other leopards eventually. On the way to the leopards he meets sever other animals.

The author has written an excellent book for children. The leopard must decide if he is friend or foe. The story is mainly about the leopard. The author has taught the reader that spots or no spots we are all connected together. One doesn’t need to worry about differences, but what similar things we have and or share.

It’s a great book to read to young children. The illustrations are well done and add to the story. I like it and I am not a child.

We All Have Spots by M. J. McDonald is a really cute children’s books about an animal named Loganl that goes on a journey and discovers all the animals that should be together. I would love to read the story to my granddaughter and she loves to read books to herself. She is two and it sounds like she is reading.

We All Have Spots was a very sweet book about a young leopard named Logan, trying to find his tribe. I really liked all the different types of animals featured. I also appreciated the message that even though we may be different from one another, our similarities should bring us together.
