I loved this cute book of poems! I love the animal theme, and thought the artwork was really cute. If I was a parent I would definitely buy this book for my child.

Summary: this is a cute book of poems from animals to animals. Each poem is short and rhymes. There are pictures of earthworms, caterpillars, bats and even porcupines.

Personal reaction: I like the pictures and short rhyming poems of this book. It's truly a book for children, which I think they would like.

Extension: Using this book to teach the students about rhyming words and sounds. And I would use it to help them make up their own poems.

Great book as an intro to poetry. Poems are simple and short, but illustrate love throughout.

This book is about the love animals share for one another! Nobody knows if they celebrate valentines day, but through these poems young readers can imagine how animals would show their love and affection for one another. I loved the rhymes an humor within the poems. It's very short, but so cute! My favortite was sharks: Mentally, we're an ideal match! Dentally, you're my perfect catch! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867104, Hardcover)

Do animals celebrate Valentine's Day? Nobody knows for sure. But this funny (and punny) little book imagines how some of them declare their love, affection, or friendship any day of the year."Nice to Meetcha! You smell delish!/Wanna share my water dish?" So asks one tail-thumping dog to another. Whereas a courting dolphin sings, "Come, leap with me and be my wife./You're the porpoise of my life." Ranging from dogs and cats and other pets to some you wouldn't want to pet, such as sharks and porcupines, acclaimed poet Marilyn Singer's captivating couplets and Lee Wildish's expressively humorous illustrations provide a Valentine's Day gift for kids who wouldn't be caught dead being lovey-dovey.
