Book Title: Out on a Limerick
Book Synopsis: This book started out as a few humorous limericks about animals, but is grew into a five-chapter, 92-page, book containing some unusual and unique information about the animals. Researching them for the limerick led me into the weird world of the creatures about which I was writing and reignited in me a childlike thrill of discovery. I decided to follow each limerick with a section called "What's the Scoop?" There you'll find some unusual facts or misunderstood myths that many books don't cover. Also, the first entry for each chapter contains a footnote section with educational material on animal classification or other fascinating topics. The last part of the paperback edition contains several activities called "What Did You Scoop Up?" There you 'll find exercises to help students remember what they read. If you laugh half as much while reading this book as I did while writing it, you better buckle up.
Author Bio: I have wanted to be a writer most of my life, but only now, as I near retirement, do I feel I have become one. I can now see the tapestry of my life as a more complete picture. I am finally able to get out of the tangled mass of threads on the back to see the pattern that was being created on the front. Every experience ”whether cause for celebration or heartbreaking tragedy ”contributed to bringing me to the place I envisioned in my youth, but nothing has ever happened as I imagined it would. The unpredictability of life is for our benefit; it causes growth. In high school, I was interested in math. In college, I planned to be a math major. Instead, I ended up majoring in English. In my professional life, I thought I would be a high school teacher, but I became a Financial Advisor after taking a œtemporary job at a brokerage firm. Although, I have been a part-time college professor for much of my life as well. The haphazard path of life has caused me to be open to whatever lessons life has in store, and my experiences have left me with a desire to encourage readers to experience the thrill of discovery.
