Poetry Friday




Poetry Friday is hosted today by A Year of Reading.

For Poetry Friday -- "Animal Snackers"  by Betsy Lewin.
 
Lewin's revised book invites young readers to discover the menu preferences of twelve animals ranging from gorilla and platypus to ostrich and koala. Each four-line verse offers a whimsical description of eating habits that is both humorous and accurate. The simplicity of language makes the poetry appealing for young readers.  A page of Animal Facts provides an interesting detail and the locality of each animal. This new version of an old favorite is filled with delightful watercolors and is worth a look.
