Jakob Streit has "listened" to conversations among animals through his quiet communion with nature. He shares these with us in the form of rhyming verse to illustrate the variety and uniqueness of some very delightful creatures.
When two so very different animals such as a squirrel and a toad start talking, we can enjoy the poetry of their conversation as well as the humor. We get to know the creatures through their differences and learn to love them for those differences.
Included also are several well-known animal fables.
With youthful dedication, thirteen-year-old Kilian Beck offers us some wonderful black and white drawings so we can learn all the better what animals say to each other.
PB, 48 pages. Ideal for second grade, but suitable for all ages.
