Young Ebenezer Teaser from YouTube


 

Grandfather Time,
chimes out loud and clear,
he’s telling us all,
Christmas soon will be here.
The fire is burning;
the room’s all aglow,
outside the snow’s falling,
so gentle and slow.

Many young boys and girls
are on their Playstations,
X-boxes, Nintendos,
throughout all the nation.
Yet one little fellow
is still not content,
to get even more presents,
is his main intent.

Now young Ebenezer,
is a naughty young lad,
not sharing with others,
he really is bad.
So Grandfather Time has
been watching him grow,
with a feeling of sadness
that is making him low.

It is time for the boy,
a lesson to learn,
that he has to be good,
for the presents to earn.
He must learn to share,
with the girls and the boys
and learn how to give
and not take others’ toys.


Introducing Rose English

Rose English 02

Living on ‘England’s Green & Pleasant Land’, among the gentle rolling hills of the Herefordshire Countryside, Rose’s house is wall to wall books. She even has a ‘Leaning Tower of Paperbacks‘.

Rose is a dreamer, preferring a simple & quiet life. Often spending time alone, although never lonely, being ever surrounded by great characters when lost in a good book. She loves theatre and the arts, adoring live performances on stage. Rose has very eclectic tastes.

Working as a school librarian, and sharing her love of books with children, was the best job she ever had. However, life moves on and another chapter was only a page turn away.

Now working in an entirely different library, in Hereford’s Wye Valley NHS Trust Hospital, Rose spends her day issuing ‘Medical Equipment’.

Rose also has a little friend called Miss Ruby Heart a ruby King Charles Spaniel who reviews Children’s Books.

Have Fun with Children’s
Poetry

By Leslie C. Halpern

When I tell people that I’m president of the Orlando
Area Poets, write children’s poetry books, perform with a poetry ensemble, and once
worked with a Shakespearean acting troupe, they usually roll their eyes and tell
me they don’t like poetry. That’s usually because as children they never
learned to understand the language of poems.

Adults can make poetry fun and educational for children
by introducing age-appropriate poems to youngsters in entertaining ways.
Infants respond to hearing rhymed poems and looking at illustrations. As soon
as a child can speak, he or she can explain what pictures mean and guess what happens
next. By being active listeners, children learn to decode language at an early
age and develop a life-long love of words. Adding sounds effects as you read to
children (such as making funny sounds, reading with an accent, including…

Goodreads Review

Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. (Harry The Happy Mouse Book 5)Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. by N.G. K.

My rating 4 paws plus

Another A~MAZ~ING bright colourful rhyming read for children, featuring our favourite character Harry the Happy Mouse. We absolutely love this book series. However, this book is truly special bringing to light the problem of plastics in our oceans and along the coastlines. The opening lines simply entice you in as if swept along on a gentle sea breeze.

On the crest of a wave and the wisp of the wind,
Harry the Happy Mouse was packing his things.

The illustrations by Janelle Dimmett are as bright and beautiful as ever. Children of all ages are going to love this wonderful educational read.

Very Highly Recommended.

Children’s Book ‘This is a Dog’

#ChildrensBook for #DogLovers check it out 🙂

Red Reading Hub - Jillrbennett's Reviews of Children's Books

This is a Dog
Ross Collins
Nosy Crow

There’s no getting away from it, Ross Collins’ intended My First Animal Book’ has been infiltrated, indeed taken over, by a mischievous canine that has no intention of doing anything but ensuring he’s the only animal that matters herein. He’s even had the audacity to substitute his name for Ross’s on the title page.

Make no bones about it, his actions are anything but well received by the other animals – note their expressions. And having annoyed the monkey, astonished the rabbit and alarmed the squirrel, he’s somehow managed to get his paws on a black crayon to edit (actually mess around with) the text.

Children will absolutely love what he does beside the giraffe and giggle at his attempts at emulating a pachyderm in front of the elephant.

He almost gets his cum uppance with bear but then comes gorilla where…

Young Ebenezer Hallowen Teaser Part 01

 I bring you a treat,
a Halloween story
of young Ebenezer
and best friend, young Rory.
I watch over the boys
I am Grandfather Time,
and I will tell you this tale
in rhythm and rhyme.

Small spacer

It is All Hallows Eve
and the kids in the schools
are really excited
to go home, dress as ghouls.
There’ll be vampires and ghosts
and monsters galore,
stepping out on the streets
to knock on your door.

Small spacer

The school bell rings loud
it is the end of the day.
The kids pack up their books,
and are soon on their way.
With his best friend in tow
Eb leaves the school yard,
they run all the way home
with their legs pumping hard.

Small spacer

With their homes now in sight,
the boys sprint to their gates
Rory punches the air
tells Eb “Don’t you be late.”
“I won’t. That’s a promise.”
Eb yells with a smile,
a little bit breathless
after running that mile.

Small spacer

Boing, Boing I chime out,
as Eb reaches our door.
Boing, Boing once again,
as my hands now reach four.
The house it smells yummy,
Mum has made a great feast
and like the Grinch on the film
Dad will carve the roast beast.

Small spacer

School bag and blazer
are thrown without care,
and land in a heap
at the base of the stair.
“Go back. Pick them up.”
is dads’ strict command.
“Or there’ll be no treats,
with neither plea nor demand.”

Small spacer

Eb does as he’s told
so he won’t miss the treats
or his first Halloween,
out with mates on the streets.
Dinner is rushed,
and fills up his tummy.
There is still room for sweets,
and all things that are yummy.

Small spacer

Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully

First of all Happy Weekend Book Lovers, sorry we have not been around for a while would you believe we are actually writing. It’s true, I kid you not. So during #CampNaNoWriMo we worked on our poetry book Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2′ but we got off course and picked up on our #Selkie Folklore story.

Today however, we went off on a completely different tangent, but it was very productive. We actually completed the second book in the Young Ebenezer series. This time Young Ebenezer gets to go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the very first time. Sadly Jacob Marley the school bully is out stealing all the candy from the other boys and girls.

With the help of Grandfather Time and Miss Ruby Heart (me of course) we hope to get Jacob to change his ways.
