Christmas Tree, So Prick-a-ly - A Silly Poem

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Why are you so prick-a-ly?
I want a hug, but you bite back.
I am your friend, I'm not a snack.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You look so bright and friend-a-ly,
A hug seems perfect, since it's winter,
But after ours I have a splinter.

Busy Bird, A Silly Poem

An odd little bird lives in my town.
I see him now flying upside down.

He darts at dogs and chases cats.
He tries to snatch off people's hats.

The other birds fly straight and true.
They seem to have bird work to do.

But this bird loops and sways and swerves.
No straight lines for him, only curves.

He flies up high then dives at me.
I duck as he lands in a tree.

Then hear him whistle and start to sing,
As he puffs up and flaps each wing.

Preparing to take another pass,
To startle and to scare enmassse.

HO, HO, HO! Merry Christmas! - A New Counting Book

FREE Nov. 29 and Dec. 30!  Merry Christmas!  Click the picture of the cover to get your free copy in Amazon!

It may not be chilly where you are, but where we live, a nip is in the air. You can almost feel that first snow coming.  So exciting! We love winter. We love it for many reasons, but the top reason is Christmas. No time of year is as much fun as the holiday season. The traditions, decorations, food, and of course stories about the Christ Child and Santa.

Our newest book is our first Christmas board book for little ones. It is a countdown book about a Jolly Engineer who is counting down the toys he will deliver to a snow blanketed town on Christmas night.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and that this book not only helps celebrate Christmas, but also helps those little ones who are learning their numbers this holiday season.

Shutdown - A Silly Poem

Are your children having trouble understanding the government shutdown? We think most children would wonder why adults can't sit down and solve problems and those children are right to think that way. This poem is dedicated to our wonderful Political Leaders who are setting such a good example to all of the children when they refuse to talk to each other.
I just argued with my best friend.
No compromise, I won't bend.

It's obvious that I am right.
I'll hold the line and win this fight.

My friend keeps saying he wants to play.
I won't do it! No play today!

I'll stay inside the house and hide,
To keep from listening to his side.

In my room, I'll sit alone,
And ignore the ringing telephone.

We can talk again some day,
Once he agrees to go my way.

What Color is God's Love?

Our newest board book for young readers helps little ones learn their colors, but also shows them how God's love is all around us.

The pictures for this book are all watercolors.  There are two pictures for each color.  The first is an abstract painting that simply focuses on the color.  The second painting shows how that color can appear in nature and how God's love is represented.

We hope you enjoy our color book.  Please leave a comment or review on Amazon letting us know.

Here are the pages for green.

 The book is available on Amazon by clicking HERE.

I'm A Superhero! - A Silly Poem

I'm a superhero and I can prove it.
Something heavy? I can move it!

I run fast when I have to hurry.
I speed past, looking blurry.

I can see things far away.
Even on a rainy day.

Like hide-n-seek? You'll be found.
I can hear the quietest sound.

I sneak around the house all day,
Assuring villains stay away.

I wear a cape, it's shiny and red.
I have a mask to cover my head.

It  helps protect my identity,
But the dog still knows it's just me.
