The Wildebeest's Review of Animals of the World - Zebras

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

I really do not remember where I got this book from. It is a children’s book that describes the zebra species and their life on the African plains.

Bearing in mind that it is aimed at children, I think that it does a reasonable job. The text is large, and the style of writing is quite casual. There are plenty of photos to keep younger folk interested. It does have the odd glaring mistake. For example, on page 24, it shows the zebras “drinking with Impalas” when the photo clearly shows them drinking with Kudus!

“Zebras” appears to be part of the “Animals of the world” series, but I have never seen any other species covered. I would love to know if other titles were published as I think this is a great introduction to wildlife, even with the odd mistake.
