About book: As I read through some of these poems, they may spark an interest in students to learn more about animals. The illustrations and humorous verses may catch children's attention more than fiction or non fiction picture books. The author takes 61 different animals from all around the world and describes what they eat, how they interact with other animals, what sounds they make and where they live. This may be used in lessons on animals or part of the world to help keep the students intrigued about the subject matter. A great collection of poetry for students in grades 2 - 4. Traveling through a variety of biomes, Gibson includes of fun and funny poems about all kinds of animals. Perfect for my second graders learning about adaptations and my fourth graders learning about biomes. Highly recommended for elementary school collections. While not every poem is spectacular, it's a solid collection and one that's easy to use to compliment the curriculum.
A very entertaining collection of animal poems with equally amusing illustrations.
Fun, witty poems describe the animals for the various regions on earth.
Lots of fun animal poems.
