I find that Headway A1 (https://amzn.to/2qEq9Yp)(Also known as Beginner) is just right for learners starting from a very low level. It takes things at a very slow pace and the CDs are slow and clear.

Re: Describe Animals in a Hurry

Sounds like a good idea. You could also turn this into a Present Simple question asking activity. Ss could ask yes/no questions like does it live in a tree? does it eat worms? . Could be fun.
