What did you like about the book?  In rhyming text a little zebra recounts the love between grandchild and grandparents.  “I’m off to Gran and Grandpa’s with a big smile on my face.  I always feel wrapped up in love when I stay at their place.” The little zebra loves sleepovers with Gran and Grandpa which includes hugs, special toys, cupcakes and fun outings.  Anytime spent with Gran and Grandpa is filled with fun and love. The bright illustrations of the anthropomorphic jungle animals are full of joy.  This is a beautiful book that perfectly illustrates this intergenerational relationship.
