This is another very special Bellissima book written for kids, this time for who are either in the hospital, going to the hospital or who are just plain hospital kids. The book is intended to be real, but at the same time be funny and entertaining and allow a hospital kid to express what he or she is feeling about everything and to make the best of their hospital stay. Penelope Dyan has an affinity for kids and feels what their hearts are saying. This is her way to help just a little bit. A former teacher of grades k-3 and an attorney, Dyan's book 'Surfer Girl' was the winner of best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival. Penelope Dyan's 'Surfer Girl' is also recognized by the Girls Voices In Literature Database, Miami University, Florida and other numerous awards. Dyan is also a mother and grandmother and brings with her this added insight and expertise. So read and laugh and cry. Do it all with this funny little book of 'Poetry For Kids.' The profits from this book (both hardcover and soft cover) will be going to a very special hospital kid named Kourtney.
