Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-- Simplicity is the key word to describe this slim collection of animal poems. There is nothing flashy here, no rhythmic roller coaster of rhyme. In these 17 poems, animals--from hummingbird to raccoon to frog--sing their simple songs with quiet eloquence. In Heard's graceful verses, an eagle is ``. . . a graceful kite with no string'' while a snake ``. . . changes its clothes . . . peeling down to its toes.'' There are a couple of poems for two voices, and there is a deep appreciation for the animals that are almost gone from this Earth. Dewey's soft, realistic watercolors are the perfect complement to the understated text. Although children will probably never clamor for this book, its stately content is accessible to them. While libraries with Fleischman's Joyful Noise (HarperCollins, 1988) and Carle's Animals Animals (Philomel, 1989) may pass it by, it is a fine, carefully crafted title that sparkles softly. --Amy Nunley, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, OH

Format: Paperback
All of the books I have read by Georgia Heard are very creative and fun and easy. These poems just flow from the beggining to end. They are simple to read yet bring on complex thoguhts. I recommend this book to anyone who'd like to read poems and just relax.
