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".

My 7 year old son adores zebras so I found this to be a great book for him. The story is very cute as the characters try to determine how a zebra gets its stripes. It is also informational in explaining how all zebras have different stripe patterns.

This is a cute book series and we picked up 4 of them all the same theme but different animals. My baby is a little young to understand but she likes the pictures.

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.

Cute book nothing truly moving, inspiring, or value based. Not the very best told story either but for the zebra lover like my 5yr old, worth it! :")

This is a cute story for children who wonder why and like to use their imaginations. We liked it and will read it occasionally in the future.
