In this delightful menagerie of poems, we meet a variety of forest animals. We learn their habits and get acquainted with their thoughts.
What I thought: Such a fun collection! The poems have just the right touch of humor to them. Kids will be sure to like them. The illustrations are great—realistic but playful. My favorite poems are:
“Biography of a Beaver”
“Nobody’s Pet (A Word to the Wise from a Red Fox)”
(Illus. Joan Rankin. New York: Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2009)
