Animalia is like an I Spy book mixed with a beautifully illustrated word game! I used to love pouring over Graeme's drawings for hours, figuring out how each item in the pictures tied back to the alphabet letter represented by the page spread. As an adult, I love helping kids figure out new vocab words by pointing out details in the illustrations!

I LOVE this book so much. The fear of being forgotten on picture day and not being able to leave your mark is so relatable. The pictures are gorgeous and the glimpse into how Amira's family celebrates Eid filled my heart with happiness. The book made me want to color my hands with henna, dance, and celebrate the joy of being brown!

This was a "found on the shelves" title for me that demanded my immediate attention. The words so beautifully illustrate our dependence on the Earth and the interconnectedness of creatures great and small. Soyeon Kim's illustrations, with gorgeous colors and amazing cutouts, really add dimension and make this a book worth treasuring.
