“The National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry edited by J. Patrick Lewis, the U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate. This beautiful book 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.”
