really liked it
bookshelves: 1st, 2nd, animals, kindergarten, picture-books, poetry, preschool
Read in March, 2009

This is full of short, funny poems about all sorts of sea animals and fish. One of my favorite poems is:

The Piranhas
It's widely known
That grown piranhas
Are long on teeth
But short on manners.
(c) Douglas Florian

Kids will laugh at the different poems and paintings Florian creates. Another favorite explains the sawfish: "My spendid saw's/ for goring fishes-/ I eat them raw/ And don't do dishes." For a fuller look, check out Google Books where you can preview some of the artwork with their poems.
