Really Rotten Rhymes by Gabriel Fitzmaurice


Really Rotten Rhymes by Gabriel Fitzmaurice

Based on the author's experiences as a teacher, as a parent, and as a big kid himself, these newly composed rhymes present the really rotten moments that children relish. These are rhymes that children, young and old, will enjoy repeating to themselves and to friends - they're rotten and they're slightly, but nicely, rude. The children love them, their grown-ups pretend to be less amused (but in secret they love them too!)
