Thirteen poets are represented in Hopkins’s seventh collection of short poems accessible to newly independent readers and also to young listeners. There’s a poem about an ant farm, and one about a tarantula, an iguana is featured in another, and a pet snake can also be found within this ‑20-poem anthology. Manning’s inviting artwork reproduced in full color adds to the lively volume. (Ages 6–8)
