The poem Caracal was written by a 9-year old named Zorya who gets 50c for every book sold. She puts that into her save the Rhino fund!

Let it be free, let it have life,
And you will find yourself burning bright.

Some Poems to inspire you:
Black Eagle Witkruisarend Ukhozi Untsho
Soaring high up in the sky
Against the sun to hunt you fly.
Dassies in the midday rays
Have special eyes as they know your ways,
They are not blinded as you hunt your prey.
Swooping out the sky of blue
The hot white sun behind you,
Quick as lightning the dassies flee
To every corner under rock and tree.
They know this trick and are very fast
But some fall prey to you at last.
To feed your chicks and your wife,
Loving partners, together for life.
Do not take fright
And across the plains
Run in flight.
I just want to see you,
And your big doe eyes.
To honour your spirit
As they did in Bushman times.
May you live long
And strong with your kind
And always walk with grace
Across African lines.
I pray now with my heart
And I pray now with my mind.
I respect your spirit
And all of your kind.

I bought 3 of these for my little cousins overseas, the eldest one is 10 years old and all three of them were delighted with this activity book. The poems are informative and beautifully written. I will be buying the penguin one for them next.
