The goal of this website is:

To generate a love of reading, augment vocabulary and develop compassion though stories in rhyme. In other words:

"Teach’em right so they won’t do wrong!"

What’s on this website?

There are four books and four Word Warriors (or learning tools)  on this site. This site is appropriate for beginning readers as well as fluent readers.  Also, the rhymes are meant to give parents the opportunity not only to read them to their child, but also to discuss the factual as well as conceptual information contained in these stories in rhyme. 

"Animals You’d Love if You Knew Them"
The magic of the animal kingdom is enriched by tracking down of unique animals and teaching some surprising facts about their behavior and demeanor.  Videos of the animals permit children to appreciate them, while the animal drawings give children a way to daydream about them in an imaginative way.

"Book of U"
By using an A-Z  format, the first letter that starts a child’s first and last name is the springboard to discuss what positive attributes to  which children should aspire.  Videos and songs supplement this.

"Garden of Verses"

Rhymes describing romping dogs rumpling rugs to how to stop bulling are merely the tip of the iceberg in this homage to Robert Louis Stevenson famed author of “Treasure Island”.  Along with artwork’s visual representation of the message, these rhymes will inspire and support what every parent wishes their child to understand.

Five Word Warrior Super-Heros
