Flamingos Don't Wear Bathing Suits by Daniel Moskowitz

Good Day Dear Readers,
The Queen here with a different kind of book than I normally present. Flamingos Don't Wear Bathing Suits is a self-published book by Daniel Moskowitz. To purchase a book, click the link for ordering information.

After reading though a few of the poems, I found the book full of cute rhymes and great illustrations. If you enjoy Shel Silverstein, then give this one a look.

Book Summary
Flamingos Don't Wear Bathing Suits is a collection of poetry aimed for children and parents alike. In the fashion of the great Shel Silverstein, Flamingos is full of both funny and heartwarming rhymes and stories, each with their own sort of startling quirkiness. The book's poems tackles many common childhood concerns in a fun and fanciful manner.

 Here's a sample of the poetry you'll find in this book:

"The dog ate my homework"
Is a lazy excuse,
They've heard this before,
It is of no use.

If you need a story
Here's one worth a try,
Say, "I ate my homework,
and it tasted quite dry."

There's more! Scheduled to release later in 2013, are more crazy poems.
