This book was written to inspire children to read about fun things. Also it was written to encourage them to read and enjoy the good things in life. It was poetically written with humor and yet it is educational. It is the author’s desire that this will be a book that teachers will find educational and useful in the classroom. It is definitely written for any elementary student level of understanding. The poetic stories have created images that after reading or hearing the words an elementary student would be able to create their own pictures and experiences. Zach’s Grandpa Frank didn’t get to complete his children’s book and Zach’s Grandma Aliceanne finished the book and hopes it will be worthwhile in the classroom and a fun reading for the students.
