Amazing animal poetry book that is sorted into nine chapters and has around 200 poems. The poems are nicely written and includes photos for almost every poem. The range of animals is very diverse, so everyone will be able to enjoy a poem about their favorite animal. The poems are about insects, sharks, birds, quiet animals (like a panther), noisy animals (like a frog), and big animals (like a moose). Students from kindergarten and on will be impressed with this poetry book.
