Carol Joan Campbell has been writing stories and poems for most of her life. But in her later years, as a mother-grandmother and great grandmother - she has found special joy in writing for children.
In 1997, she wrote songs for a children’s CD titled “Why Knot Play By The Rules”. This CD is made up of songs that teach safety rules. Written for children and sung by kids, this is a great learning tool presented in a pleasant way. It includes rules warning not to play with matches, “Don’t You Scratch That Match”, being careful with pets “I Love Puppies and Kittens”, etc. One of the songs concerning safety around swimming pools “You Don’t Have Fins”, won 4th place in John Lennon’s international children’s song writers competition that year.
She hopes that all of you, children and adults, will enjoy the poems in this book, and perhaps see different views of flowers and nature.
Grandmas and Grandpas are lucky,
‘Cause when their children give birth,
They welcome a glimpse of heaven,
And get their own special angels on earth.
Carol Joan Campbell
