Reviews

"This stunning collection will encourage readers to become careful observers, and to make the world of nature their own." --Starred, Publishers Weekly "Vivid imagery and an expert command of sound and meter distinguish this collection of poems about animals." --Starred, Booklist "Will resonate with poetry lovers, but should also open doors for those who feel daunted by poetry." --Starred, School Library Journal, April 2007 "The works of Valerie Worth stand out as quiet portraits capturing the essence of the most ordinary subjects." --Book Links, March 2007 "Impressive and regal." --The Horn Book, May / June 2007 "The cut-paper illustrations are as rich in detail and color as the poetry they accompany." --Kiwi Magazine
