Just in time for National Poetry Month and Earth Day, National Geographic Kids Books proudly announces the release of Animal Ark: Celebrating Our Wild World in Poetry and Pictures, a picture book for children ages 4-8 written by Newbery Medal-winning author Kwame Alexander and featuring photographs by acclaimed National Geographic Fellow and photographer Joel Sartore.

Animal Ark pairs Alexander’s uplifting poetry and prose with more than 100 of Sartore’s most compelling images of the world’s species to create a book for children that highlights the importance of conservation and the beauty of the animal kingdom.


Animal Ark is inspired by the National Geographic Photo Ark, a multiyear effort with Sartore and the National Geographic Society to document every species in captivity—inspiring people not just to care, but also to help protect these animals for future generations. To date, Sartore has completed portraits of more than 6,000 species, photographed on either a plain black or white background. No matter its size, each animal is treated with the same amount of affection and respect. The results are portraits that are not just stunningly beautiful, but also intimate and moving.


Animal Ark: Celebrating Our Wild World in Poetry and Pictures is available to major bookstores nationwide (SRP of $15.99) in addition to online here at Amazon (Current price $11.12).

For a behind the scenes — and hilarious — look at what REALLY happens when trying to photograph all shapes, sizes and personalities of these extraordinary species — click here to check out this fun blooper reel of Joel’s photo shoots.

The book is visually stunning with the fold out pages as I showed above and it is perfectly paired with the poetry throughout the hardcover book. This picture book is a fantastic selection for National Poetry Month and contains a message that is pitch perfect for Earth Day (April 22nd). I definitely recommend checking it out, in addition to other National Geographic Kids books - they are some of our favorite and most coveted books in our house!
