There are actually a lot of things in this Life that are free – and here is one of them –
just a few ‘teasers’ from the first book in my children’s e-book series, ‘Small Folk Tales’
I’M YOUR FRIEND
How about a ‘BOK-BOK’ chook?
I lay eggs for you to cook.
Smooth feathers have I, and the beadiest eye.
My quick beak can catch a fly flying by!
What a clucky, pecky bird is a chook!
Wait a minute – where’s a duck?
Here I am – to say ‘WUK, WUK’
A waddler on land, on water I sail,
Clean up your garden of worm, slug & snail.
What a handy, dandy bird is a duck!
(and there are many more friends to meet)
and then there’s –
A CARROT TALE
When the hunger pangs claw
At your tummy – for coleslaw?
Carrot matchsticks for your lunch pack,
Or a celery after-school snack?
And carrot salad – Mum makes a treat,
When she jellies grated carrot – so orange, so sweet… more
Tempted yet? One more, you ask? OK –
I looked in my garden,
and what did I see?
A whole herd of elephants!
Well, I’ll be . . . .!
Their grey trunks blended perfectly
amongst the tall tree trunks,
How lucky that pink elephants
are only seen by drunks.
One elly tried a soursob,
and found it much too sour,
She sucked up half my rainwater tank,
washing it down, and having a shower!
Now if you want more, you’ll just have to buy the e-book.
I’ll tell you once again, because old girls repeat themselves often, so it’s OK
