Song of the Wild

A First Book of Animals

Written by Nicola Davies, Illustrated by Petr Horáček

This book contains poems about animals and one fact about them. The poems are organized into five categories: big and small, colors and shapes, animal homes, animal babies, and animals in action. I found it effective to organize these poems into five categories instead of placing animals together by geographical location. It made the book more engaging because I did not know what animal I would learn about next. In addition, the watercolor artwork was mesmerizing and added a soothing touch to the poems.
