Flutter & Hum: animal poems / Aleteo y Zumbido: poemas de animales (2015) by Julie Paschkis.
Folk artist Julie Paschkis has assembled a delightful collection of animal poems in Spanish and English. A native English speaker, she was recently inspired to learn Spanish by a picture book project about Pablo Neruda. Composed in Spanish and translated into English, these poems feature a variety of animals of the land, air, and sea.
I love the combination of Julie Paschkis' unique art style with the bilingual poems as well. She uses words as such integral parts of her illustrations, and the language of the words chosen matches whichever language she is using for the poem on that part of the page. So clever!
