Muddy Paws Dog Poems
This is a small collection of poems about dogs. People of all ages will laugh and cry, it is a real treat for dog lovers.
Here is one of the poems from the ebook.
It is all about the excitement of welcoming a new puppy to your home.
A New Puppy
Today is the day, we’ve waited for
A brand-new puppy to love and adore
He has a new collar and a comfortable bed
So when he gets tired he can rest his sweet head
The house is ready, the gardens secure
There’s treats in the cupboard, a lead by the door
We’ll pat his head and throw his ball
Teach him to fetch and good recall
We’ll keep him healthy, safe and well
So, full of pride, our hearts will swell
And as the months turn into years
He’ll make us laugh and dry our tears.
Here are some more Poems by Kate Hanford which are also available in ebook format.
The following two books are children’s books:
Oh What A Stink! is a small collection of funny poems for children aged under 3 – 5
Here is one of the poems
I have a little brother
He likes to scream and shout
He even screams at dinnertime
Whatever’s that about?
He screams when he is happy
and again when he is sad
He even screams at bedtime
He’s such a noisy lad
My mum bought me some earplugs,
but they didn’t really work
For when my brother saw them
He really went berserk
We tell him to be quiet
But he doesn’t even care
He just shouts even louder
It really isn’t fair!
But when the day is over
and the screaming is complete
I look at him tucked up
And he really is quite sweet!
Really Mum? is a small collection of funny poems for children aged 4 – 8
This one is called Granny’s Spell, also poetry by Kate Hanford.
My grandma has a magic spell
She gets it out when I’m not well
It isn’t just for coughs and colds
But upset tummies
Warts and moles
She cooks it in an invisible pot
She stirs and stirs
Until it is hot
When people ask for the recipe
She says its made from the
There’s a pinch of banana
And a dash of trout
A sprinkle of trifle
And a juicy red sprout
Then the magic elf calls by
With a drizzle of sunshine
And a handful of sky
Before the potion is complete
She must stamp her eyes
And close her feet
Then gently she spoons
The magic spell in
But you must
Hold your nose
And scratch your chin
And only then
Will you feel well
Thanks to the magic
Of granny’s spell!
I hope you and your children like the poems.
A very short review would be hugely appreciated.
