It’s Weird to Grow a Beard – Kindle


Neal’s first book of poetry exclusively for kids ages 2 to 10.
60 pages, 17 poems and 39 illustrations in full color.

What better way to teach life lessons to young children than to infuse them with humor, rhymes and colorful illustrations.
A wonderful little book for parents to read to their children before bedtime or teachers wanting to introduce the class to poetry.

There once was a nose
with exceptional gift.
He could tell you the color
of things that he whiffed.

He’d stick up his nostrils
high in the air,
and call off the colors
of your shoes and your hair…

Then—the Nose who knows everything gets a surprise! In Nelly Shmagessen’s delicatassen the sandwiches reach a mile high. Best friends Ickey and Gooey really stick together. Stan the Man makes houses out of gravy. A mutt in a rut gets help from a friend. And, a curious cat learns when to keep his mouth shut.

These are some of the hard-to-resist characters from award-winning composer, filmmaker, author and artist, Neal Fox. Curl up with this book and the world will be a cozy place where you can feel good about being yourself.

17 poems, 39 full color illustrations, in the style of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky.
A must for any child from ages 2 through 10.

“I really loved reading “It’s Weird to Grow a Beard” and felt like a kid again! Very funny, great illustrations and lots of silliness – just what every child loves. Not only will children love this book, they’ll be given great advice about what to do if they’re feeling down, the importance of being helpful to others, and the difference between truth and lies.

“I strongly recommend this book for every home and classroom library. Neal Fox is a real talent…” — 5 Star Amazon Review
