It's a Test Day, Tiger Turcotte (2004)

Author: Pansie Hart Flood Illustrator: Amy Wummer
Publisher: Carolrhoda Books/Lerner Pub
Number of pages: 72 pages

Seven-year-old Tiger Turcotte has been dreading going to class because today is the day he has to take The Test. Armed with his lucky tiger-striped pencils, Tiger’s ready. The first five questions go okay—they’re easy—and the rest of the test isn’t so bad either, but Tiger’s scared. He left question number six blank. He didn’t know which little bubble to fill in—was he supposed to pick the Black bubble, the Hispanic bubble, the Native American bubble, or Other? He’s sure that no one else in his class had the same problem, but he doesn’t want them to find out he’s different! With a little help from his dad and his teacher, Tiger discovers that appearances can be deceiving, and maybe he’s not so different after all.
