Stripes of All Types
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 an afterword provides more information on each featured animal and where it lives, and explains the role its stripes play. A matching game where children can try to match stripe patterns to the animal with that pattern completes the book.
