Brian Wildsmith's Wild Animals

Brian Wildsmith's Wild Animals
Brian Wildsmith ~ Franklin Watts, 1967

Week three of first grade en Español.

Sometimes I feel like my son is so immersed in The Kane Chronicles, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and all things "A es para ave" that it's nice to snuggle up with a big stack of picture books when he gets home from escuela. Still one of his favorites, the perceptual animal lover will never stop loving looking at Wildsmith's grand colors and wild, wild animals.

Once again, we find Wildsmith cataloging his creatures into their fascinating and sometimes aptly-named groupings. Such as...

An array of hedgehogs

A shrewdness of apes

A lepe of leopards

A skulk of foxes

A cete of badgers

Goodness gracious. I could go on and on and on about the beauty and, literally, wallpaper my whole house in his images and never ever EVER tire of the looking at them.

Bless this man and the splendid polish that comes from his hand.
