Coming December 2017

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.
