Kids love poetry.

When June Estep Fiorelli read poems to her students and her daughter, she saw joy in their faces. New words and rhyme captivated them and sparked imagination. They bounced to the music of the rhythm and laughed at the ridiculous.

Poems in Stuck Toast and Mud Pies run the gamut. They tickle the funny bone; end in a surprise; tell a story; or slip in a fact or two. From non-readers through middle school, all kids, even grown-up kids, will find something that makes them giggle, stimulates their curiosity, or even inspires.

June Estep Fiorelli is a writer, teacher, parent and activist. The author of many professional works, she currently writes for children with articles and poetry published in a number of children’s magazines. Her Young Adult biography, Fannie Lou Hamer: A Voice for Freedom was published by Avisson Press.

Stuck Toast and Mud Pies was published in partnership with Words Matter, Palmetto, Florida.
