Grandpa Pencil's Collection Of
Little Rhymes for kids that adults love

I present this collection of Little Rhymes in the belief that the love of reading begins, like most things, as a tiny seed of fun and joy.
Grandpa Penci's little rhymes include those with a message, those just a tad quirky and some that are just plain fun.
Included, along with Grandpa's own, are the works of some of your favourite writers.

Grandpa Pencil how I wish

I know they gurgle down the drain
And wander slowly out to sea
To end up as a turtle's tea.


Grandpa Pencil looks at the works of the

Great Poets & Playwrights

Featuring in this section, along with William Shakespeare's, are the selected works of William Blake, Alfred Lord Tennyson, William Wordsworth, John Donne, Boethius, Ben Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith , Thomas Gray, Andrew Marvel, John MIlton and William Butler Yeats.
The pieces have been chosen for purely selfish reasons: I just happen to like them.

The selection looks at the victories and defeats, the joys and the hardships of colonial life and shows the result of being in a very strange place thousands of miles from home.
