Author Peter Knoester regales young readers as he shares Poems and Stories for Children, released through Xlibris. A delightful read, it introduces kids to literature that is fit for their age yet can also be enjoyed by adults.
Divided in two parts, this picture book introduces simple poems which feature both animate and inanimate objects to children. Through funny verses and rhymes, Knoester gives character to animals, personifies certain objects and landscapes, and many more. Each poem allows young readers to play with their imagination, interact with their surroundings, and appreciate literature early on in their lives. Also featured in this book are two short stories about baby birds and a fawn that would make great bedtime stories for the young ones.
“This work came about quite by accident but became a full-blown booklet for the enjoyment of all ages. I love children and to see them at play and hear the screams, mostly of delight, warms my heart… I myself am a child at heart and in a way have never grown up and hope to be like that forever,” says Knoester.
Poems and Stories for Children will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.
