My tooth is loose and shaking

Can I eat what mom is baking?

I move it around to make it wiggle

Ow! That hurt's so I do not giggle

It's going under my pillow, no doubt.

When the tooth fairy comes

I hope she doesn't bring gum.

I would like some money to keep

I'm sure she'll bring it, soon as I'm asleep

I'll dream about my favorite toy

I can buy it tomorrow, Boy ! Oh Boy!

Sharon Johnson, is a refreshing newcomer to the wonderful world of children's authors. Sharon's book, Recess Rhymes, is just in time for the invigorating summer fun kids are waiting for. Sharon's understanding of children began during her college career, where she studied child psychology, focusing on the area of physical and social behaviors. She volunteered many years of her time assisting children. Sharon holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science, but she has always dedicated her life to children and to better understanding how to encourage children to enjoy reading. Today, Sharon would like to offer the book to subscribers of Theblackmarket.com prior to its public release. This book is a magnificent piece of work. Approriate reading for young children, ages 7 -12 years, but many adults find they are reminiscing on their childhood mischief as they read the stories. The book contains many funny incidents in school, strange daydreams, and tales of bullies who are not so tough. Reading should be fun and Recess Rhymes has children anxiously waiting to read the next story. Your child will love the amusing situations as each story unfolds.
