Sixteen creatures are introduced through rhyming poetry. Although you've never seen them before, their descriptions (not to mention the illustrations) make them forever memorable.
If Jack Prelutsky wrote it, then I want to read it. Stardines just moved to the top of my list of favorites. The creatures are an imaginative yet logical blend of an animal and a character trait. The illustrations are as fabulous as the poetry, and I went back to just "read" the pictures and enjoy the imagery. Kids will love knowing what the "real" animal is ... and they'll want you to read this one. A lot.
Exquisite rhymes, amazing illustrations, and imaginative creatures will have readers asking for these poems to be read over and over again.
Sixteen rhyming poems push readers to use their imaginations in this illustrated picture book.
Read these for fun. Then make your own fun. Ask your readers to "rename" an animal and give it a personality. It doesn't have to be a poem, just a little push of the imagination.
