Smile Beagle Puppies - Rhyming Factual Dog Books For Kids

Beagle Puppies - Rhyming Factual Dog Books For Kids - Puppy Books For Kids Series



http://www.amazon.com/Beagle-Puppies.../dp/B00FKZM5WG

Sample Rhymes:
Sometimes a normal dog is stinky, you can easily tell,
But I’m not like them because I don’t have a dog smell.
Problem is I can’t be a good guard dog on feet,
Because as what I said, I’m usually friendly to everyone I meet.

Beagle puppies is suitable for older children (age 6-12). Each page features a picture and 2-4 lines of text together with explanation of difficult words on each page.

The book is very entertaining, providing factual information in an engaging, rhyming format.

This is a must read for any beagle dog lover.

This appears to be neither good poetry nor good prose. The poetry has no consistent metre; the text is poor English. What does "Because as what I said" mean? The word "what" shouldn't be there! If you're going to teach children to read, would it not be better to teach them grammatically correct English?

No time to talk to would-be authors who get hung up on typos and make them seem larger than life...

I think Harry is talking about language use, rather than typos.

Those concerns should be addressed; turning your back on them does not make them go away.

It's in your own interests to post "samples" which are genuine representations of what your book contains. If your book contains poems with correct metre and correct spelling, then why not post a genuine sample, rather than what you did post (and still haven't corrected)? You're only hurting yourself by doing this.
