I think this book is art of words. This book has very artistic poems that are related to each animal’s special characteristics and behaviors. This book is very sweet and cute for children to read with beautiful illustration. Poetry is considered as hard and not fun for many young readers, even for adult readers. This book is not super short or simple, but because of the illustration and its uniqueness, it makes this book exciting. Poetry and art comes great together, and this book should be considered as the teaching book for school teachers to introduce poetry to young readers.
