My Mate Joe and Other Rhymes (Paperback)
Throughout most of my life, I have enjoyed reading to children, especially the little ones, who are, in my experience, the most responsive audience of all. Children love nursery rhymes and poems and so do I. I love the simple stories they tell, as do the children. However, it is the rhythm that really grabs their imagination. One little girl told me that a nursery rhyme was like singing without music.Most of the rhymes we know and love, with certain exceptions, were written in the nineteenth century. They tell of kings and queens, of wonderful times and of tragic times. So what about now, what about the twenty-first century? I was thinking one day and wondered if, perhaps I could write some that were fresh and new. This book is my humble attempt to do just that. I do hope you enjoy it.
