Read full description of the books Me Too!: Preschool Poetry:Preschool is that period of childhood when everything is either black, or white, a time of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, and the grey area hasn't yet begun. It's that last true age of innocence when mom and dad are the good guys, pretending is a profession, and bugs are only tiny friends. Wouldn't it be fun to have a grownup friend who understands, someone to say it's okay if the world doesn't always make sense?
CJ Heck is that grownup friend. She's been entertaining children and grownups with her poetry since 1999 through her website, and then with the release of her first book "Barking Spiders (and Other Such Stuff)" in 2000.
Sit back, get comfy, and read "Me Too!" with a child-- get back in touch with your own inner child again and remember, remember, remember ...
"CJ's understanding of, and ability to enter into, the mind of a child is apparent in every page of her children's poetry. Her devotion to and expertise in writing poetry is in my opinion, second to none."
Russell Daily (Co-founder and co-owner of FX Signalmaster LLC)

Anatomy of a Poet

Anatomy of a Poet:
"This is my kind of poetry. Direct, beautifully expressed and without a hint of pretension." ~Allison Cassidy
"Too often poetry is written so abstractly that it leaves the reader with more questions about the point of the writing, rather than the insight, or inspiration. This is NOT true of CJ's poetic verses. The words are poignant, resonating feelings to the reader intended by the writer. Words from the heart that penetrate the soul!" ~Sharla Shultz
"I am not a poetry critic, so I cannot compare CJ's poetry with others, evaluate her mastery of language, or classify her to any particular school of poetry. Having read the poems, I felt something. The messages are clear and direct. She does not go through mental elaboration and the poetry touches the heart. Reading her poems made me feel nostalgic and longing at the same time, as if nostalgia and expectation are one and the same." ~Eleftheria Egel
"Wonderful, marvelous poetry that touches on the realities of life." ~Jack Henry Kraven
"CJ has a beautiful way of writing that obviously gets in touch with people and makes them think about what she is saying -- a very difficult skill to grasp." ~Lyrael Myrna.
"CJ Heck is predominately viewed as a writer for children, but she now carries over her approach to more adult themes. In doing so, she presents a profound world that is deeply sad, incredibly humorous and sometimes intimate." ~Joseph Daly
"One of the most gifted children's poets I have ever read!" ~ Todd-Michael St. Pierre
"Every primary teachers dream come true. I have found that rhyming words are important for six year-olds when learning to spell and read. I love herr poetry! She never ceases to amaze me." ~Joyce Bowling
"A natural, spontaneous writer, who freely gives of her soul to her readers. She never fails to amuse and entertain with her brilliant and witty writes. A razor-sharp mind and acute awareness of what makes people tick, or tock." ~ Peter Paton
"Her work is not only brilliant, it is a joy to the spirit and restores youth to our hearts -- a gift for writing what kids think and feel." ~ E T Waldron
"CJ flies everyone away on daydreams and wishes, boo-boos and bats, frog legs and monkeys, and old circus clowns. I can't think of a single children's poet that has the ability to marry the children's poem with a life's lesson and keep it fun." ~Rusty Daily
