Don't Judge a Book by its Cover (Fleck)

Discussion Questions
1. Have you ever judged a person, animal or anything by what it looked like or what someone else told you about him/it?

2. What did you find out after you got to know the person or animal? Did you feelings change?

3. If you see a book or DVD with a picture on the cover that you like, are you more likely to buy it? What if it was just a plain wrapper—would you consider reading or watching it?

4. Why do you think it is harder for older dogs to get adopted?

5. When a pet gets old, is it okay to just give it away or abandon it? Explain your thoughts.

6. If you were walking down a line of cats or dogs, which color fur coats would most quickly attract your eye?

7. Have you ever formed an opinion about animal based only on his breed or name? How about a person based on where they came from, their accent, the color of their skin or hair or their name? How do you feel about this decision you made and did you change it?

8. What can you do to not misjudge in the future?

9. What is your picture of an Animal Shelter? Do you think it is a good place to adopt a pet from?

10. Do pet stores in your neighborhood sell dogs and cats? Do you know where the stores get those pets from?
