Review; Where Life's No Longer Wild: Poems from the Urban Jungle by Marilyn Singer and Gordy Wright

Last year, I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the book Where Life's No Longer Wild: Poems from the Urban Jungle by Marilyn Singer and Gordy Wright through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
Humans may have built towns and cities, but we aren’t the only ones who live in them. Given the smallest chance – a park, a garden, a window box, a basement, a subway tunnel, a bridge – wildlife manages to survive in the city. Look around – you may discover you’re in an urban jungle!

This beautifully illustrated non-fiction book tells the unique stories of the animals who have made their homes in urban spaces around the world. Each story is told through a short descriptive paragraph paired with colourful illustrations so children will discover the amazing wildlife we never knew were our neighbours.

My Thoughts on the Book
Wild in the Streets is a really fun poetry book. It contains both a poem and information on the animals represented and it has some amazing colourful artwork. There's also a glossary and information about the various poetry styles in the back. I think this is a book that could work well in a classroom.
