From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 5-Yolen has written 14 haikus in response to Stemple's full-color photographs of small animals and insects. The poems are well crafted and thoughtful. Some interesting facts about each creature are also included. Covering full spreads, the vivid photographs show subjects in sharp focus, while the periphery is blurred, creating the perfect backdrop for the text. The name of each animal is printed across the picture in a large, color-coordinated font. The subject matter, the eye-catching photographs, and the brevity of the selections will appeal to younger children. Older children, especially those who are studying haiku, will enjoy the wordplay and imagery. They will also be interested in the introduction in which the author describes how the book came about. A first purchase with broad appeal.
