    These poems talk to kids - funny, serious and all-about-life poems as only Steven Herrick can do!

    Each day after school, Steven's sons would come home and tell him about their day. These stories became poems and these poems became fodder for the many school talks Steven gives around the country each year. Topics include food, animals, school, friends, sport (esp. soccer!), dogs and anything and everything relevant to kids.

    For this new book, Steven has taken poems from three of his well-known collections and themed them together for easy access. From footy, to kiss-chasey, to brothers and sisters, there is something for everyone!

    The Ten Commandments (or ten things your parents will never say)

    Let's forget dinner tonight, we'll eat ice-cream instead.

    Goodnight children, I'm off to bed. Stay up as late as you want.

    No homework tonight. I'm putting all homework in the fireplace immediately.

    Children, don't be so quiet. Start yelling, turn the TV up, start arguing. NOW!

    Yes, of course you can have 21 of your friends come over to stay on Saturday night. We've got heaps of room.

    No, don't listen to the dentist. Lollies and biscuits are good for your teeth.

    Yes, that SuperdoopaComputerGame is too expensive but let's buy it anyway and we'll put it in your room.

    What's that? You broke the kitchen window. Good boy.

    Can someone go to the shop for a paper? Here's $100, keep the change.

    Yes, I know it's Monday, but why don't we stay home from school anyway?
