Ziggy Zebra’s Favorite Picture Books

The Zigzag Zebra (affectionately known as Ziggy) is a familiar face to users of our pre-reading program. Ziggy is a young zebra who loves to read right along with young students.

But have you ever wondered what Ziggy likes to read? Well, I asked him to share a list of his favorite picture books with you, and you probably won’t be surprised to discover that there are zebras in all of Ziggy’s picks. Check out this list of zebra picture books from everybody’s favorite zebra!
