“Ms. Worth brilliantly employs all aspects of the poet’s craft.” – The New York Times Book Review
 
Each of the exquisite twenty-three poems in this posthumous collection by Valerie Worth carefully distinguishes one animal from all other creatures and captures it in all of its wonderful singularity – from wasp to snake to wren. The way Worth perfectly illuminates the uniqueness of each animal in her precise and elegant free verse will delight both fans of her celebrated Small Poems and readers encountering her poetry for the first time.
 
Breathtakingly rich cut-paper illustrations by Steve Jenkins provide a perfect counterpoint to Worth’s spare style, and together poetry and picture bring every animal vividly to life.

I love books. I love children. This site appeals to my love of helping children grow up with a passion to read, learn and become smart. I think it is very important for children that have fewer opportunities that we all do a little bit. I may not be sure how much good my small contributions will do, but hope is for everybody.
