At the Pond, by David Elliott
reflective relaxing fast-paced
I read this because it was a Cybils award nominee in the poetry category. It was nice but maybe not what I was expecting from award nominated poetry. In many ways it is similar to other picture books exploring an ecosystem (in this case a pond) but sometimes used rhyming or alliteration. There is back matter with nonfiction facts about each creature which got a poem.
Probably not a great story time read but a beautifully illustrated picture book about pond animals.
adventurous informative inspiring lighthearted slow-paced
Rich detailed illustrations, love the playful poems with rich word choices.
