I did think that this collection was a good way to introduce children to poetry. I was hoping for a little more cohesiveness with the theme, though. Not every poem could be tied in with animals, caring or even traveling around the world. One poem was about candy, just candy (which the kids loved, but was difficult to tie into any lesson). I do wish each poem took the reader to a definite destination on the globe and tied in an animal friend that lives there such as The Wall did. Overall, a different kind of poetry book for children that will help to introduce free-form poetry and larger concepts through verse with the help of brightly colored animal guides.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
