A collection of poems that are funny and fun to read.
What happens when a restaurant owner refuses to serve a clown because of his crazy red hair and floppy clown shoes?
"No Clowns Allowed" shows the importance of speaking up and how one little voice can make a big difference.
Other poems in the collection contain lovable characters like the little guy who works hard and becomes a basketball star, the girl who only wants to wear polka dots, one that is tempted by a cupcake, and one that takes ice cream eating to a whole new level. Her ice cream-eating skills are giving me the chills!
Join in the fun and do a silly dance when your reading time is done!

About the Author
Maggie Keefe, a former computer geek, gave up writing code and started writing silly, quirky Children's books fulfilling a lifelong dream. Writing code may-have paid more but writing for kids sure is a lot more fun! I hope you have as much fun reading them as did writing them!
Jayneen (aka Jay Dale) is an experienced early years educator, author and publisher.She started her teaching career in the 1980s as a primary school teacher in rural Australia. She then moved to Melbourne and taught at a number of inner-city schools. In 1985, Jay had a change of career and became an educational editor and publisher.In the early 90s, Jay and her partner moved to Japan to work as English teachers. They lived and worked in Japan for over three and a half years. In fact, Jay's first daughter was born there.On returning to Australia, Jay began work as an educational author/packager. Since that time, she has authored and produced numerous award-winning titles for the educational publishing industry. Jay is also an accomplished children's book author, writing a number of titles for such literacy series as ZigZags, Totally Kidz, Deadly and Incredible, and a children's picture book series for Penguin.She is currently working with an educational publisher as lead author of a literacy series. Jay has written over 130 titles in that series.Jay is a mother of three daughters and was a school councillor at her local school for over seven years. This time spent in schools both as a teacher and a parent inspired her to ask the question of her community: 'What are we doing in schools to protect our children from unsafe touch?' When she realised very little was actually being done, she decided to use her authoring and publishing skills to write 'Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept' to help parents, carers and teachers to broach the subject of self-protection and to encourage children to speak up.After the encouraging response to 'Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept', she realised there was a need to further build upon the idea of children not keeping secrets about unsafe touch. Jay participated in Protective Behaviours professional development and attended numerous conferences on the topic to educate herself in how to keep children safe and provide them with prevention education. Jay then went on to develop and publish a comprehensive Body Safety and Respectful Relationship Teacher's Resource Kit as well as writing several more children's books on the topics of Body Safety, consent, respect, body boundaries, gender equality, and social and emotional intelligence. Jay's ongoing passion for the safety and empowerment of children continues today with new manuscripts and free-to-downloadresources always in the wings.
