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