" This is a good book because it has creative aspects as well as facts! It's colorful and fun for kids. " said.

" Great fable-like African story. After hearing 4-5 implausible stories about how the zebra got his stripes, we settle on an evolutionary explanation. The only rational one. Excellent. " said.

" قد يتسائل أغلب الأطفال عن كيفية حصول الحمار الوحشي على خطوط جسمه. يقول الكاتب أن السبب انتهاء الصبغة البيضاء والسوداء من عند الرجل الحكيم.. إجابة غير مقنعة، أعتقد أن الأطفال قد يجدونه سخيفاً، لا أدري " said.

" A silly story about how the zebra got the black stripes and how the cheeky baboon got the bare, red patch on the bottom. It doesn't make sense though but it's kind of funny.no pain no gain! That's the message I got.Kinda cute illustrations. " said.

" FOLK TALES:This book is a different take on a folk tale. It tells how the zebra got its stripes. The book is recommended for young children ages 4-6. It is a good introduction to folk lore for young children. " said.

" Nice read about African American zebras who share the funny ways they earned their stripes. I used read aloud multiple times in my classroom during lessons. Some of the many ways were to teach the "th" digraph, identifying syllable patterns, finding past tense verbs, and identifying characters, plots, and settings.Or you can simply add it to your library for the kid's enjoyment. " said.

" Blueberry and I had a great time reading this book together. The story was entertaining and the illustrations were cute and funny. The book contains African animals talking about how the zebra got its stripes (so the title is pretty spot on). After all the animals theories and the story concludes, there is some interesting zebra facts. " said.

"Ever since I can remember, Little Golden Books have been the gold standard for quality. In recent years with the explosion of properties, some have been better or worse but they're almost always fun to read to the young ones.

How the Zebra Got Its Stripes is the exception to the rule, I guess. It sounded like a fun book and my daughter was excited to get it but the whole thing is kind of a mess. First it starts off with the Professor narrating, then it switches to a third person deal, then the final few pages are some dry Zebra facts. It's not a bad idea, the theories are silly, but something just doesn't click here.

Also, the "Creator" it speaks of, and depicts as a "God" like figure, is a strange addition and was confusing to the kiddo.

At the end, her comment said it all: "That was very boring."
" said.
