Kort biografi
Charles Ghigna (born August 25, 1946), known also as Father Goose is an American poet and author of children's and adults' books. He has written more than 5,000 poems and 100 books.

In 1974, he became a poet-in-residence and started teaching creative writing at the Alabama School of Fine Arts (ASFA). He subsequently worked on the children's television show Cabbages and Kings and in 1979 taught creative writing at Samford University. He published his first children's poetry books in 1992, before leaving ASFA the following year and taking up writing for children full-time.

Ghigna lives in Homewood, Alabama with his wife, the author Debra Ghigna. Their son, Chip Ghigna, is an artist. [from: Wikipedia, 10/21/23]



This is a cute and colorful book for young children. It has a nice flow throughout and helps to teach children the alphabet as well as common words that begin with each letter. This book is put together using the letters to mostly help children to place which animal begins with which letter. However, there are some letters that do not have anything to with animals when I think that they could have. I understand that not every young child is going to know what some of the more not as well known animals are, but isn't that what helps to make reading a learning process? I think that sometimes there needs to be words that a child would not otherwise know without asking someone to explain to them what the word means or what the word is. The reason I say this is because it can not only help to improve their reading but it can also help to improve the amount of new information obtained through reading the book.… (mer)

Whole group reading for ages 3-6.

This book goes through celebrating all the great things and people that Alabama has to offer. It is very interesting about what has come from this state and what amazing people there are. This would be good as a read aloud or personal reading for learning geography, for middle grade students like 3rd or 4th grade.

This book walks through the history of Alabama and the people from Alabama who made a difference in the world. This book could be a great book to share with 3rd or 4th graders. Within the classroom, this book could be a great example of state history and kick off a unit on state history research. This book could also be used as an example for a Middle School history project of making books about state history.
