Animals and poetry are two of my favorite things and I love that this collection brings them together. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the text is large. The facts the poems introduce are interesting.
I liked all the poems and look forward to using this collection both in storytime and outreach to elementary school. This collection is perfect for sharing with preschoolers. Davies is right up there with David Elliott in terms of the best poetry for preschoolers.
