Twosomes: Love Poems from the Animal Kingdom by Marilyn Singer

Can you imagine two sharks sharing romantic poetry?  Marilyn Singer can!

This is a Borzoi Book published by Alfred A Knopf Books for Young Readers and they provided me with a copy for review (thank you).  Lee Wildish is the illustrator.  This book is currently available for sale at your local bookstore.

The author uses short, "punny" quips for her poetry about animal love.  The vibrantly colored illustrations make the animals stand out from the pages and express joy at life.  Your children will laugh out load over these silly rhymes.

An example to entice you:  "Nice to meetcha!  You smell delish!  Wanna share my water dish?"  Can you guess which animal that is?  You're right, it's a dog.

This would make a lovely Valentine's Day gift or how about a "You're special to me, child!" gift?

It's a charming little book that I'm going to have to keep for me, so it works for older folks, too.  Check it out at your local bookstore and grab  a copy.
