This book is full of fun poems about all sorts of animals. Some of the poems are short while others are longer. My favorite poem out of the book was about mice and a cat. I really enjoyed how it repeated "One mouse, two mice, three mice, four" throughout the whole poem. It made the poem really come together. The illustrations in the book are also great, especially for young kids. This would be a fun book to do short read aloud of each poem.
