Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan AtteburyKids who read this book will be seeing stripeszebra stripes, that is. With its cover photo of a zany zebra nestled against a red background, this book is sure to attract attention. Inside, information is just as engaging for young readers eager to learn about real animals. This book from the "African Animals" series allows early readers to read at a comfortable level and still gain a great deal of nonfiction knowledge. The book is broken into four concise sections that offer information about where zebras are located in Africa, what they eat, how they live with other zebras, what they look like, and how they can see danger approaching from all around. It also contains information about the eating and drinking habits of the zebras and tells about zebra predators. Short text and high quality photos work well together. This book will prove useful to science and geography lessons, and it will fit into the "good read" category in early classrooms. End material consists of a simple glossary and a list of web sites and books that offer more information about zebras. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
