This poem is for parents and older siblings to read to their children and younger siblings, respectively.

This will work best with pre-school children just learning to speak, forming their own identity and recognizing their own name.

As with "Here To Stay", this poem is intended to allow the young child to hear his/her own name used as the subject or focus of a short, lyrical, rhyming and rythmic poem. The idea is to entertain, please and evoke laughter from the child.
