Animal Spots and Stripes

Publisher: Templar

Review

Stripy zebras and spotty giraffes share a grassland habitat despite their difference in appearance; stripy caterpillars turn into spotty butterflies and spotty dogs chase stripy cats.

This boldly illustrated picture book explores these and many other connections between a variety of spotty and stripy animals - and even features a surprisingly clever one which can be both spotty and stripy at the same time!

Text is minimal and each double page will have youngsters anticipating what might be hiding behind the fold-out extensions which, being made in robust card, should cope well with plenty of eager handling. Lots of bright colours and scope for interaction and discussion make this an ideal book for the very young.
