A howling wolf, a stalking tiger, a playful panda, a dancing bird – pairing the stunning photography of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore with the delicate poetry of Newbery award-winning author Kwame Alexander, this lush picture book celebrates the beauty, diversity, and fragility of the animal world.

Featuring more than 40 unique animal portraits, the pages invite kids to explore each creature's markings, textures, and attributes in stunning detail, while calling on all of us to help protect each and every one. Three picture-packed gatefolds inside showcase even more familiar and exotic species. These images are part of Sartore's lifelong project to photograph every animal in the world, with special attention given to disappearing and endangered species.

        Disclaimer: I received this book in a giveaway from DogoBooks. My siblings and I all really enjoyed the pictures in this book, although none of us were fans of the poetry or the Nature-Instead-of-God perspective. The photographs are gorgeous, though.

          I liked the animal pictures in this book. I also liked the chart of the animals at the end of the book. If you like poetry and animals, this book would be good for you. I received this book for free from DOGObooks.

                    Trees are beautiful, with green leaves on their branches, in spring and summer.
