ABOUT THE BOOK
„Buntes Gebrüll“ originated from the idea to merge my strong affinity for nature and poems into a children’s book, capable of conveying both the breathtaking biodiversity of the animal world and the unique magic of poetry. Due to the development of more accessible yet fugacious media, poems lost the significance which they used to have. People have forgotten about those hidden gems. A whole world hidden within an antiquated diction and crooked lines, just waiting to be discovered by the daring reader.
I chose this topic of „animal poetry“, due to my adresses consisting of young readers and listeners. Each child, regardless of gender or origin, has a natural fascination for everything that flies, crawls, swims, furry scaly or feathered and lives in exotic areas of the world. The chosen poems convey a sense for the animals‘ habitat, their character or their favorite food and arouse the urge to aquire more knowledge. Additionally, meter and rhythm of the poems help children to learn and comprehend new words.
