I checked this out because of my current project of writing and hopefully illustrating a book of animal poems I didn t find the poetry particularly magnetic, but I quite like the illustrations I was amused that in the author illustrator bios on the back flap, each of them gave the names of their pets but not their husbands. This picture poetry book is for children ages 5 10 I think younger children will appreciate the focus on animals and colors right off the bat As they grow up they may understand and appreciate the amazing adjectives used to describe the animals and their color The poems are short and use color to capture the emotions of the animals It is very easy to smile while reading this book I enjoyed the paintings They were structured very interestingly in a box They are not a typical landscape view like in many other children s books I would keep this book around for read alongs, teaching colors, and pointing out the importance of adjectives to older students. This book is about poetry in colorful animals It has a lot of colorful artwork that dsecribes the poems.
