Poetry Friday is hosted today by Teacher Dance.
For Poetry Friday -- "Twosomes : love poems from the animal kingdom" written by Marilyn Singer with illustrations by Lee Wildish.
In honor of Valentine's Day and just for giggles, I've selected Singer's pun-filled collection of couplets celebrating the love between various animal pairs. Designed as a gift book with a "To, From" page decorated with hearts, this is a little delight filled with kid-friendly verses celebrating the joy of friendship. Familiar dogs and cats share pages with bats and porcupines in search of their own "Valentine."
HORSES: "Nose to nose, hip to hip,/ours is a stable relationship.
PORCUPINES: "Hugging you takes some practice./So I'll start out with a cactus.
Wildish provides a perfect reflection of the merry verses with cartoon style illustrations.
