From leaping, flying fish to dancing butterflies, and camels that "trollop along," Eric Carle's brilliant and colorful collage designs bring to life animal poems from such diverse sources as Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Emily Dickinson, and Jack Prelutsky, as well as Bible verses, Japanese haiku, American Indian poems and more. This celebration of the wonder and variety of earth's animals is "joyous...a book to be shared" (Booklist, starred review).

This is a book of animal poems from different poets, but is illustrated beautifully by Eric Carle.There are different types of poems found throughout the book. This book can be used for children to read and find an animal in which they would like to research to learn factual information about that animal.

This is a collection of poems about animals by renowned poets such as Ogden Nash, Jack Prelutsky, Rudyard Kipling, and Mary Ann Hoberman. While the poetry is wonderful, the highlights of the collection are Carle's own illustrations. There's a poem for every child and animal lover in this anthology.

This book has many different poems in it. This book would be a good book to read to k-1st grade to go over all the different animals.

We picked this book up from our local library. When I picked this book up I thought it would be a great read for K and myself.  But it didn't seem to hold K's interest within the book being as it is poems. He likes an actually story.   For him I guess the poems and rhyming didn't really keep him wanting to read more.  I do love this author's work but this book just didn't keep us wanting to read. For those that like poems by different authors then I say give this book a go you may like it, but it was not something for us.

I think I must be the only parent in America who doesn't like Eric Carle's work, in general. I like his drawings, but not the stories. This work is the perfect solution, for the text is short poems from world literature. The result is a book that will last a long time, for my 21 month-old son loves the pictures now as he's leaning the names and sounds of these animals, and the poetry will keep it engaging for years to come.
