It took a little time...
BUT all good things come to those who wait.
And this wait was well worth it because Lenora Rodgers' latest work Zeke & Zak Fumble Through: A Fairy Long Lesson with illustrations by Terry C. Wise (Published via PS Publishing) started out as an adorable little story that has grown into a fabulous beginning of a series that's sure to please kids and the parents who read along with them.
(But maybe they might decide to put teeth destined for the Tooth Fairy on the nightstand with a big sign that says 'THIS IS MY TOOTH' just in case Zak and Zeke are on duty the night the Tooth Fairy is scheduled to make a visit!)
It’s magical, marvelous Christmas Time! It’s the glorious season of children’s lives when they can wish and hope for all the gifts they want most in life and know that Santa Claus is the one who can deliver.
In The Secret in Santa's Beard, this whimsical Christmas poem, a young girl visits Santa at the local department store and sees something unexpected in his fluffy white beard and realizes there is more to life than just gifts... there’s another happy world of playmates to explore!
Have you ever wished you learned to play chess when you were a kid? Do you want your children to learn to play the game but worry it might be too complex to explain?
Not to worry!
Chess Challenge is chess poem to help young children (and maybe even their parents!) learn the basic moves of this centuries old game. Accompanied by chess board illustrations, the playful verses describe how the different chess pieces move around the board.
And as in life, Chess Challenge shows children that learning how to plan ahead is important and every decision has a consequence!
From Chess Challenge
"Each space has a name, there's a name for each space. When a chess piece is moved, you can name its new place."
From Chess Challenge
"A straight line for your Bishop, always march
him toward the corners. A strong ally in this war,
called Chess, til it's over."
And they're off...
It's the dream of every champion racehorse to win the biggest race of all...the Kentucky Derby.
In this children's poem, a thoroughbred shares the events of his day at Churchill Downs from sunup until the end of the big race. As he describes the life he loves and those around him with great affection, the time to run grows near. Will he win?
My First Saturday in May is the latest offering from Lenora Rodgers inspired, no doubt, by the fact that she's a proud resident of Kentucky - home to the world famous Kentucky Derby which is held... the first Saturday in May!
With colorful and fun illustrations by Terry C. Wise,
My First Saturday in May not only tells a story in a fun sort of verse but it also helps readers learn a little bit about the rich history of the famous equestrian race and the people who work with the horses to make the a reality.
Zak & Zeke, the two not-so-smart apprentice fairies and number one assistants to The Tooth Fairy, are back on the job! Oh my!
In the sequel to their first adventure, A Fairy Long Night, the boys report for duty at young Stephen’s house only to find him sleeping with his big basset hound, Marshall. When playful Marshall’s powerful hound dog nose sniffs the boys out, the chase is on! Hopefully, THE BOSS will be able to help them out of another crazy adventure.

Please note: You may still purchase A Fairy Long Nightmare via Lenora directly but only until PS Publishing begins the process of revamping of it as they're doing with A Fairy Long Night.
One can only imagine how crazy this adventure is going to be made even crazier! Because it's hilarious as it is right now!
