Book Review & Giveaway: Screamers: Poems and Drawings by Kenny Penny
When kids read they don’t think about getting an education, they want to have fun! “Screamers” is a delightful book of poetry that entertains children with humor while it helps them develop an ear for language. The author Kenny Penny offers up his zaniest poetry, inviting young readers to picture life as a “Big Slinky”, taste “alligator toenail stew” or read “the world’s smallest poem”. Smelly things, nutty teachers and hiccups add to the hilarity, as does the idea of “backwards pants” and having twelve toes! “Screamers” revels in the fact that kids have an enormous silly side and can never get enough of wacky ideas and crazy images. With over 225 poems and countless illustrations (all drawn by Kenny), this book is highly engaging, wildly funny, and unexpectedly heartwarming. For kids age 6-12.
My Review: This book of Poems and drawings has a lot of humor that children even adults can relate to. If you love poems you would love this book, why? Because the drawings are simple and child-like. The poems are funny that it would keep you laughing as you turn the pages.
Driving daddy’s car…
Just missing all the trees.
Driving daddy’s car…
Much faster than the breeze.
Driving daddy’s car…
I know that he’ll be pleased
Once I find the jar
Where daddy hides the keys.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
