Children's picture book

Armadillos Amble by Jeannine Gerkman

My upcoming book has twenty-six two-word sentences from A to Z in the form of a rhyming poem. Each sentence is an animal doing an action matching its letter. At the bottom of each page is a description of the action (verb) and a fun fact about the animal.

I’m doing the illustrations myself using Book Creator on my I-Pad.

For example, under “Armadillos amble’, the page reads: “To walk slowly. Armadillos don’t see very well. They wander around and when an armadillo finds food (like ants in an anthill), he uses his long sticky tongue to chow down.”

Armadillos amble. Bears browse. Camels cuddle. Donkeys drowse.

Elephants eat. Foxes flop. Giraffes glide. Horseflies hop.

Ibex itches. Jaguars jump. Kangaroo kicks. Lemurs lump.

Monkeys mimic. Nenes nod. Owls ogle. Puppies plod.

Quails quiver. Rhinos relax. Snails slither. Tiger tracks.

Uriel ungulates. Viper vexes. Whale whooshes. Exmoor exits.

Yaks yawn. Zebras zag.
