The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderfully innovative collection bursting with energy, you can’t help but read with a smile. Chrissie Gittins is on a mission to save words from extinction, with forty exuberant and informative poems to celebrate amazing animals, birds and plants. The imagery is joyful; adders dance, beetroot paint your kitchen, and melons have an annual party, whilst Paul Bommer’s entertaining illustrations make the poems zing off the page. This is Gittins at her very best, playing with style and composition, and writing with zeal.

Adder, Bluebell, Lobster by Chrissie Gittins
If you add an adder to an adder they are prone to have a dance, they writhe around each other till the strongest gets a chance to PUSH the other down. Watch out for bossy Beetroot! Be enchanted by a Bluebell witch's thimble and spot a dive-bombing Lark or a cute Great-Crested Newt.
From Adder to Wren, forty fantastic poems celebrate forty amazing animals, birds and plants and their beautiful names - which YOU can help poet Chrissie Gittins save from EXTINCTION. This is nature close up, exciting - and WILD.
The poems are brilliant. We recommend for ages 6+ and for all ages.! DolphinBooks - the blog
These lovely animal and plant poems really trip off the tongue and they are a sheer delight to read aloud. From adder to wren, the poems are arranged alphabetically and they have gorgeous, sometimes whimsical, illustrations by Paul Bommer - I want to get my crayons out and colour them in! The poems are superbly descriptive - bluebells are described as 'a cobalt belt, a lake of bell towers nodding onwards in the wind. The poems use words to great effect - the vocabulary is superb and a great way to extend children's own use of language. The poems will really encourage children to take note of the world which surrounds us - an excellent collection. Parents in Touch
