Synopsis

In Stripes of All Types, author and illustrator Susan Stockdale brings to life a patterned parade of animals, showing young readers some of the many reasons stripes are found so often in nature. Bouncy, alliterative rhyme and simple phrases keep readers entertained, while a glossary at the back provides more in-depth information on each featured animal. An afterword provides more information on each featured animal and where it lives, and explains the role its stripes play.

Readers can test their knowledge of animal stripes with a fun matching game at the end!
