I bought this book for my son's two-year birthday. He loves Zebras, and so I thought he would like this book. When I opened the book for the first time, I was a little concerned because there are many words. I didn't think it would hold his attention. But to my surprise he loved it. The reading involves dialogue from other animals, so you can make cute voices. That along with the many pictures in the book...my son enjoyed it. He even requests us to read it now..."zebra book".

Funny little book that should hold the attention of a child interested in zebras as long as you aren't looking for heavy science.

This is a creative story and the pictures are fun to look at. The book is longer than I thought which was nice because it really captured my nephews' attention.

This is a cute book with a very interesting story. Just what I wanted for a baby shower with a zebra theme. Quick shipping.
