        Amybabs, Another great one! It looked interesting at first glance, then when realized it had the rhyme scheme, it made it even better!... I coached my son's T-ball team last year and it was so rewarding to provide a positive environment for the kids and see them grow over the course of the season. I'm also working on a children's book series that I hope to make a positive impact with if I can get it published. I assume you work with kids based on this and some of your previous comments?

            I really like how this combines creativity and common sense while adhering to a structure that's perfect for the subject of working with children: the alphabet! Nice work.
