Where The Water Meets The Shore
Poems for Young Minds by Laurie Rodgers

This is my first collection of poems and limericks. The ideas were jotted down on hot summer days in Algonquin Park or cold winter evenings at Lake Huron. These poems are designed for young children to read and enjoy...maybe to inspire their own ideas for writing poetry or even short stories.

After over 30 years of teaching in primary education in Toronto, I drew from my experiences and fond memories of teaching children to read and write.

From my great nephew Oliver and niece Abby, to my 99 year old father, Edward, I have written about my experiences, thoughts and dreams; words and prose that I hope children will love and remember. It has truly been a work in progress.

As this is my first book, I have learned a lot and recognised the work that it takes to concentrate to complete a project like this. And I like to acknowledge the hard work and creativeness of my daughter and illustrator, Sara Rodgers.

Thank you to everyone that contributed ideas and encouragement. And to the entire team at FriesenPress.
