These groupings include poems about insects, fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The volume includes an index of titles, as well as an index of authors. Poems about the same type of animal are grouped together; for example, there is a two-paged illustrated spread of poems about dogs.

Children will be delighted with the variety of poetic genres exhibited here--from the sublime to the hillarious.

Hi my name is Roxanne! I am 9 years old! I recived it from my aunt Barbra. I loved it so much that I went to a bookstore called,"The Frugal Frigate". It's the best! I bought the book for my teacher! She loved it too! She started telling all the teachers and everybody! Then they started buing,"The Beauty Of The Beast!"
This book is worth it for the "Bumble Bee" poem on page 6 alone but the end page art is also incredible. The poets are very eclectic ranging from Margaret Wise Brown of "Goodnight Moon" fame to Ted Hughes and D.H. Lawrence! This is a wonderful book for all ages.
