Nathan and I are fond of stories that have animals and this is our first book filled with poems. A book with 30 different short poems that talk about different animals, birds, and bugs. The poems have been designed in a way to give basic knowledge to children about the particular characteristics of each of the animals.
The context of the book is how we should conserve our ecosystem and how are we securing them for our future generations. The book takes us through the eyes of each animal and understands their environment through them. Each animal emphasis how they are important to the environment and how we can protect them.
Important details are added about each animal in short texts. As they are simple poems, the child can understand them easily.
What each animal teaches us,
A tortoise famously taught us that slow and steady wins the race,
Monkeys have played their part in discovering the marvels of space,
Ants show us how rewarding hard work can be,
Development of a butterfly is an evolutionary miracle to see,
From wolves, we can learn to work together,
Foxes demonstrate how to survive and thrive in the worst weather,
Even a king like lion often faces failures in catching its prey,
Yet it never gives up and uses a new strategy every day,
The virtue of patience is best represented by tigers and snakes,
Frogs enjoy those dark rainy days by singing in the lakes,
Eagles are renowned for their concentration,
By trading land for water whales have mastered adaptation,
For younger kids, introduce this book to identify animals and birds. The older kids will love these short poems more. We are reading a few poems daily and Nathan is warming to it slowly.
If you have a kid who loves poems, grab this book with captivating illustrations.
