    1. Enough bullheads.It's a list of poems from the point of view of various animals as the year progresses. Every season has a poem from the bullhead fish, because they are the most important fish. At a certain point, it's just like, "Okay, enough. Enough poems. Oh my god, enough." And they get really repetitive. It's interesting, and they're definitely different styles based on the different animals, but poems like the one from the deer mouse are really annoying. "Get get get get get get out of the [...]

    2. This marvelous book is a collection of animal poems, one for each month in the year. It features bullheads sleeping under ice, deer, and more, ending with a house cat in December.

    3. Recently received as a gift for a poem I wrote, I already love this anthology by Marilyn Singer and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. It is full of delightful and jumpy descriptions of different creatures throughout the seasons. For example, there's 'January Deer', 'March Bear,, and "april is a dog's dream,' where is found a dog who says "we're going to the park/to chase and charge and chew'. The illustrations are gorgeous watercolors surrounding the words. I hope you can find a copy.

    4. For me, this was a fantastic poetry book to enjoy with my son. The poems were dying to be read aloud and after I read them, my son would say, MY TURN and read it with even more enthusiasm. I additionally think the illustrations were beautiful, so lifelike. Fabulous poetry book to share with kids. K-5 (and I loved it as an adult as well!)

    5. Author: Marilyn SingerTitle: Turtle in JulyGrade: 2-3This book is an interesting story book that goes into what different animals are doing in different parts of the year. It explains animal diversity and the structure and function of living organisms all organized into a nice story for young 2nd and 3rd graders to enjoy.

    6. This book includes a poem about an animal for every month of the year, and sometimes season. ONe of my favorite was Deer Mouse which uses repition of the word "get" and tells all the things a mouse needs to get without getting into trouble.

    7. The style of poetry shown in this book gives new insight to how to write poetry. It doesn't rhyme, but it uses the way sentences are broken up to be poetic. Perfect for a poetry theme. Also, the poems are about animals doing various activities from January to December, and its very realistic.

    8. This book would be great to read to a 3rd grade classroom about the seasons. This book could also be read during s unit on animals because students can learn about different animals during certain times of the year.

    9. My kids love this book. Its a pretty fun poetry book, all about animals, and also has seasons & months. Its a fun book to get at the library.
