" Fantastic read featuring some pretty cool animals and poetry! " said.

" This book is beautiful and I really enjoyed Alexander's poetry. Some of the lines were really clever. I don't think I'll buy this for my library because it has several fold out pages and those tend to get damaged quickly. However, I would not hesitate to buy this as a gift for a child. " said.

" Gorgeous photos of the animals, soaring poetry by Alexander.I heard Alexander at a library conference and was swept away by his beautiful word smithing. And today by chance before picking up this book, I heard Sartore interviewed by Terry Gross. " said.

" Gorgeous photographs. I didn't tape the cover down b/c the inside the cover photos are not to be missed. Lovely imagery. Buy two copies b/c the gatefolds won't hold up. Nice cross-curricular connections. " said.

" Beautiful photographs with free verse poems showing the wonder of animals. I really like how the photographs included uncommon animals for children to see. Would make a great read aloud for elementary children. " said.

" Newbery medal-winning author Kwame Alexander and National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore combine their amazing talents in creating this gorgeous collection of endangered animal portraits and poetry. The touchable detail and brilliant color of the close up photos will enchant young readers, while the gentle haiku verse emphasizes humans' connectedness to life on Earth. Reviewer 28 " said.

" Breathtaking, truly stunning photography is no surprise when it is produced by National Geographic. The angles, perspectives, lighting, fold-outs, and EYES of these gorgeous creatures will make it a favorite across ages and interests. Kwame Alexander's use of free form Haiku works well to provide minimal but superbly selected words, as sharply hypnotic as the images. " said.

" Animal Ark is a wonderful, high quality book filled with stunning photographs taken by Joel Sartore of animals from all over the world. Numerous photographs are paired with haikus written by the talented Kwame Alexander. It's so easy to linger on just one page because you want to take it all in - the uniqueness of the animal and the emotions and imagery of the haiku. Animal Ark is going to be a favorite in my library and the classroom. " said.
