Here is a short excerpt from my entry to the Children's Book category!




The Art of Staying Dry


Most children are frightened

Of monsters or darkness

Of dogs or of storms or of ghosts

But James Daniel Reed

Was an odd one indeed

Water was what he feared most


When it came time to bathe

He would put up a fuss

And delay it for over an hour!

His mother would fret—

He was not even wet!

For his raincoat he wore in the shower
