National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

The National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry edited by J. Patrick Lewis, the U.S. Children's Poet Laureate contains 200 poems -- both classics and modern selections -- that celebrate the winged ones who fly through the air, the little ones who crawl through the dirt and all the noisy, quiet, big strange and other ones in between. Big, beautiful and gorgeous full-bleed photographs accompany the poems that inspire even as they inform children about the creatures in the world around them.  

The perfect keepsake gift for little animal lovers or a favorite teacher, the National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry has the rare and distinguished honor of earning starred reviews from all of the the major book review publications.  Kirkus Reviews calls the National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry A well-stirred mix of old and recent limericks, haiku, short lyrics, shaped poems and free verse… A spectacular collection…” and School Library Journal goes on to say "Add a little natural wonder to your poetry shelves. Because if we’re talking about the best possible compliment to your eyes and ears alike, few have as many perks and grand moments as this."  

Our Review: 
This book has beautiful photos of different animals. My daughter loves flipping through the book just to look at the different images. Some of the poems have interesting facts about the animals too, so my daughter gets to learn more about them as she reads through the book. This is a great book for kids who love poetry, animals or both.
