EVEN MORE DINO POEMS?!?
They're at it again!
Dinorific Poetry (the book that started this whole crazy dino thing)
The book begins with “Backyard Dig” – the very first poem Michael wrote for Ethan one evening after E had drifted off to sleep. It's the story of Ethan making an interesting discovery in their own backyard. Wanna find out what it was?

“...the poetry is funny, the words cleverly chosen, and the content quite educational. Along with Ethan’s adorable pictures, the book makes for a fun read with your kids.”
It’s a BLAST!
Michael now hosts a monthly program called Children’s Book Blast! at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg. He interviews children’s authors and illustrators while encouraging adults to read to children. The program is taped in front of a live audience and airs on PCN-TV statewide.
