Brown, Skila Slickety Quick: Poems about Sharks Candlewick, 2016. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
This book features poems and information about numerous kinds of
sharks. Many of the poems are laid out in a creature manner, such a s a nurse
shark wearing a poem mustache about its mustache. Features double page illustrations
of each shark that are bright computer graphic style.
Something happened bad to me when I was in second grade, poetry.
I have never recovered, so I am probably not a great person to review poetry books, I just don’t gel with poetry
very often. This is no exception. But I am going to rate it as advisable because
I do think that the artwork is so fun, the topic is appealing to the many and
numerous shark fans and the informational blurbs add quite a bit.
