Here is a collection of poems about life in a pond They are plenty informative Have you ever heard of a Wood Duck Me either They almost went extinct and they are very shy Each page or so has a poem and then a few facts about the animals being elucidated The water bear is uite a strange micro organism I am learning about Duckweed is an unusual plant that floats on the water Animals like to eat it I thought the poetry was good and it brings focus on the small world of the pond I loved learning about the caddis fly It makes a shell out of anything on the bottom of the pond and it looks ready for a fashion show I want to see one in a pond nowThe artwork did a great job of bringing these tiny creatures to lifeThe nephew loves bugs and odd things so he liked the animals in this He got a little suirmy but he seemed to like learning about these odd bugs He liked the caddis fly too Both kids thought the water bear was pretty gross and I agree The niece loves fact books and she appreciated the poems in the story about this tiny habitat She thought this was a great book of facts and she enjoyed the use of poetry to get across the personality of the bug The nephew gave this 3 stars and the niece gave this 4 stars

The first thing that caught my eye about this book was its format Looking at the front cover and reading the title did not captivate my interest right away I actually probably would not have picked this book if it was not for my librarian She recommended it so I gave it a go Once I opened up the pages in this book I was completely involved in the poetry The poems are written all about the topic of animals and plants that live in a pond The language is beautiful and the illustrations are bold and inviting to look at What caught my attention the most was the bits of factual information connected to each poem On the page opposite the poem the pages are laid out in a two page spread there is one to two paragraphs about the animalplant in the poem I found myself reading the poem first reading the factual info and then rereading the poem My goal then was to see if the author put any factual info into the poems itself This book is very engaging and I could see a reluctant poetry reader enjoying it
