Behind the Book
For preschoolers to elementary school age children!
The Pet, Zoo and Farm Animals cleverly depict what’s being said in the witty informative rhymes created to inspire children at a very early age to:
Eat Nutritious Foods
Mind Their Teacher
Do Their Homework
Wonder About And Discover New Things
Look Forward To A Bright Future
Imagine What They Want To Be
Go Outside To Play With Friends
Be Really Careful Out In The Street
Beware Of Strangers
Don’t Allow Bullying
Tell If Someone Does Something Bad To Them
Obey Their Parents
Know Disobedience Can Get Them Grounded
Be A Good Brother Or Sister
Be Kind To Others
Don’t Ridicule Others
Befriend Other Races and Nationalities
Stay Out Of Gangs And Don’t Do Drugs
Get Plenty Of Rest
This plain and simple yet stirring and thought-provoking booklet not only ushers in the opportunity to explain eating right, exercising, how to treat others, handling bullying, not talking to strangers, being watchful crossing the street, the importance of getting an education and imagining what you want to be when you grow up, it gently paves the way to discuss the dreadful acts many children are enduring in homes and in communities worldwide. They need to know physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse is wrong and must cease. They need to become aware of these things at a very early age, taught and strengthened to take right action, to run, if possible, to scream “fire”, and most of all, to tell. Encourage them to be brave not fooled being told harm will come to family members. If anyone has suspicions or is told secrets a child has been hiding, immediately contact the proper authorities. Parents, grandparents and teachers have commented on how the photographed pet, zoo and farm animals and witty informative rhymes lead to great question and answer conversations.
So I write:
Let them know how best to grow.
Feel good about “I told you so”
About getting an education
And how to look out for yourself
And how to treat everybody
And do what’s good for your health.
To get outside and have some fun.
To stay away from strangers
And be sure to tell someone
If someone does bad things to you
Tell your parents and your teacher, too.
Continue to utilize your mind
As the “Ladder of Success” is climbed.
