This book is made up of a collection of rhymes about creatures from around the world. It lists animals from A-Z and introduces the reader to some amazing and new creatures.
Included for each creature is a fun fact and at the back of the book there is a page with more facts about each creature and a question for the reader to answer. The answers are included to support the teacher.
There is a section of Poetry Tips to support the reader to try and write some poems of their own. It would be a great challenge to use this as an innovative text on a topic of your choice.
