Subject: Thank You for A Fabulous Way to Show Kids Poetry
We are embarking on a new journey next year. We have decided to homeschool our children (rising 2nd and 5th graders) for academic reasons. I have been working to find excellent resources for things I want us to cover and learn as a family next year. My goal was to find poetry that we could enjoy as opposed to the eye-rolling, drool inducing, boring poetry that kids always loath in school. What an absolute delight when I found your website!!!
Thank you for sharing your gift with others. I know that your poetry will allow our family to share laughter and rich experiences together while the kids (shh, don’t tell anyone) actually learn something too. My eldest is a budding writer and my youngest would prefer shots at the pediatrician to picking up a pencil. I am confident that your clever words and hilarious art while inspire both ends of the writing spectrum in our house. Thanks again!

I’ve spent the better part of New Years Day on your web site.
It’s totally incredible and gave me some great laughs
The cartoon characters you have on this site are 2nd to none
Thanks for the great site you put up

Hey Wayne . . .
I sure thought you gave an excellent program yesterday!! I could tell the students really enjoyed it! Also, they really got a good laugh out of your funny illustrations, plus creative poems!! I, myself, especially liked the poem about the girl who went on a date and ate the bait!
Hope yall are having a great day!

The students, parents and staff of Port Houston Elementary would like to thank you once more for your amazing presentation today. The students were captivated by the choice pieces you shared with them. We will be writing our own poems from funny stories or jokes we already know. Thank you again. We hope to see you again.
