I think that is a very helpful way for children to learn to read by learning words that rhyme with each other. I also like that the animals talk about themselves and teach children about themselves, right from the animal's mouth, so to speak. Great review!


Thank you :)

Sounds like a great book for the little ones. Outstanding review. I think you covered everything there is to love about this book. The poems sound particularly fascinating. I'm sure the illustrations won't disappoint the young ones. Because I consider myself an animal lover, I almost want to get this book for myself. Kids stories teach wonderful lessons about life even we as adults can take to heart.

Great review! I especially love children's books that incorporate nature. I'll have to check this one out for my classroom! :D

I think even as adults, it's nice every once in a while to go back and read children's books. However, I almost feel like you have to actually have the copy in your hand. With these, it doesn't seem to be the same (to me anyway) if it's on an e-reader screen. It loses something in translation. Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent. I enjoyed your review, and it seems like a great little kid's book.
