So I am normally not a big fan of poetry, but I just couldn’t resist this one. The cover just was too pretty + I am a big fan of animals/nature.
And boy, I am happy I did try out this book as I had quite a lot of fun reading it. The book features 13 habitats on earth, from mountains to deserts. All of them accompanied by gorgeous illustrations and a poem telling us about the various animals that live in a place and about that habitat itself as well.
The poems are pretty gorgeously written and enjoyed reading them. Here is an example, this one is from The Outback:
“Soon, a sky of diamonds will sparkle in the billabong.
Hour of the old stories.
For this is a land made in Dreamtime.”
The illustrations are really a gem, be sure to check them out (and not just focus on the poems). Some of the illustrations feature various hidden creatures, and all of them are just so pretty to look at and find all sorts of fun details.
Plus points to the last part of the book with more information about the various habitats.
All in all, a book I would recommend to everyone, even if you are like me and not a big fan of poetry, this book will charm you.
