A Lyrical, Spherical, Rhyming Romp
Through Richmond.

Sometimes sweet, sometimes silly and always poignant, these poems for children pay tribute to Virginia's capital city of Richmond. If you have lived here, worked here or visited, you will likely recognize some of your favorite people and places within the pages. Short Pump Bump takes us from the cool downtown riverside to the upscale sprawl of the far west end—all with spirit, humor and rhyming richness worth reading and sharing again and again. It is the perfect collector's item for those who seek out all things Richmond and it is a happy read-aloud for children of every age.


* For addresses beyond the continental U.S., additional shipping and handling charges may apply. Books typically ship via USPS within one day of online ordering, but you will be e-mailed a delivery estimate once you place your order. Bulk orders for schools will be delivered several days before scheduled author/illustrator visits or 2 to 4 weeks after order is placed when there are no visits scheduled.

** With each of these packages, additional books can be purchased at a discount, to be discussed at time of purchase. Larger packages may be available. We are currently scheduling visits to schools and youth organizations. E-mail us for availability. Also, look for our teaching activities manual, Short Pump BUMP UP YOUR BRAIN!
