Synopsis

This is a children's picture book full of rhymes about Ramone's adventure to the moon in his silver rocket.

I believe, like Cambridge professor Morag Styles, that: "Children’s responses to poetry are innate, instinctive, natural – maybe it starts in the womb, with the mother's heartbeat? Children are hard-wired to musical language – taking pleasure in the rhythm, rhyme, repetition and other patternings of language that are a marked feature of childhood."  

Coupled with fun images, I am certain this book would be popular with both parents and children.  Thanks for looking. 

Audience

The audience is parents of non-readers and very young readers.

The catchy rhymes are intended to introduce complex, probably unfamiliar, words to young readers.  Indeed, this is a valuable strategy as stated in the Harvard Education Letter:

“...a growing body of research and classroom practice show that building a sophisticated vocabulary at an early age is also key to raising reading success—and narrowing the achievement gap. At schools like Lee Academy, teachers are overcoming the age-old habit of speaking to young children in simplified language and instead deliberately weaving higher-level word choices into preschool and primary grade classrooms. Whether it’s a discussion at morning meeting, informal talk at the block area, or a selection of read-aloud books, teachers are exposing younger children to language that, in many cases, exceeds the vocabulary level of a typical conversation between college graduates.” 


Author

Mick is a writer and father who is not allowed to buy his own clothes.  His creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry have appeared in numerous consumer magazines, newspapers, literary journals, and three books of poetry.  He is a member of the Georgia Writers Registry, Gwinnett County Writers Guild, and founding member of the Snellville Writers Group. In 2018, he created a quarterly reading series with a fundraiser for the local food co-op.

He lives with his wife and a dozen larcenous squirrels in Atlanta, GA.  His next book is coagulating nicely.

In addition, I am on the Georgia Writers Registry.  This gives me an opportunity to read at schools and libraries.  Indeed, most libraries I have visited are big fans of children's authors and have a ready-made advertising strategy for an eager audience.

Sample

A rocketeer named Ramone
Breakfasted on a t-bone
Then climbed into the nose cone
    In his silver rocket.

He tested out his earphone
And, getting a good dial tone,
He blasted through the ozone
    In his silver rocket...
