Practical teaching notes are included at the back of each book. Where do you see stripes around you? Do you see them on a zebra's fur, or as shadows on the pavement, or on a bright, woolly jumper? Stripes are everywhere! In this simple wordless information book, each spread gives a close-up of something striped, and then pulls back to show where the stripes come from. A simple pictoral summary at the end of the book provides an oppportunity to recap and discuss the information in the book. This book is ideal for supporting early work on patterns and art.
