Published in by Peachtree Publishers, Stripes of All Types explores how animals around the world benefit from their stripes through engaging rhymes and bright, bold images. This is the ninth year that the One Book, Every Young Child program has promoted the importance of early literacy by emphasizing the importance of reading early and often to children, as well as engaging them in conversation and other activities around books. Adults with preschoolers in their lives are reminded to support the development of literacy in preschool children. Because it is important for children to be prepared for school, One Book, Every Young Child provides tips for adults on reading aloud, telling stories, sharing and talking about books as well as providing simple, but fun activities to do with preschoolers. 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.

A patterned parade of animals comes to life! Bouncy, alliterative rhyme and gorgeous illustrations introduce readers to a wide range of striped animals.

Thank you! The animals are not named within the text, allowing this to be a great guessing game, though the youngest ones may not sit still long enough to learn about the animals in the backmatter. And while the creatures are a nifty mix of the common and less well-known—zebra, skunk, bees, tapir, okapi, bongo—most readers can simply name the type of animal and be satisfied; they need not know the specific names of the tropical fish, though they are provided. The final two spreads present readers with thumbnails of the animals and a few sentences of information about each, as well as a challenge: Match the 19 different stripe patterns to their animals from the text answers are provided. A lovely, interactive exploration of stripes and a good introduction to some new animals. Informational picture book.
