When you think of striped animals you probably think of a tiger or a zebra first. There is actually quite a variety of striped animals in the world. Author/illustrator Susan Stockdale does a fabulous job illustrating some for us. The charming little rhymes tell us what these striped creatures do in their natural habitat. Insects, birds, reptiles and mammals are well-represented on the colorful pages. Bonuses at the end of the book include short informative paragraphs about each animal as well as a guessing game of striped patterns - all of which are found in the book. This is a great choice for teaching pre-schoolers about patterns.
