“Wonderful collection of short poems that will lift the spirits of children. The length of the poems are absolutely accurate not too long not too short. My daughter and I read the poems together and enjoyed every poem throughly. It transferred me to my childhood and left a big smile on our face throughout. I highly recommend this book to parents and teachers of K-5th grade children. "
Review From, Poems That Empower Children
"“Fun rhyming story - great for reading out loud! Jimmy and his dad see things differently and from different vantage points, but it’s okay! Teaches kids the important lesson that there are different points of view. Also teaches opposites, or antonyms, which are highlighted on each page. A fun read for all little ones."
