Crackin' a Smile is a book made up of many limericks and poems. They are "for kids of all ages" and are ordered in the book alphabetically. With a title like "Crackin' a Smile" you would expect that these will be fun and silly and will make you smile or maybe even laugh.


Despite these poems and limericks being rather short and quickly read, Lelsi Johnson writes them in such a way that you can absolutely picture them as you are reading. A lot of them also have a bit of a surprise punch line which is what makes them so fun to read. (Crackles and Pops especially I was not expecting and had a great smile on my face when I reached the end.)


There are 41 limericks and poems in this book - you can easily read through them all in a rainy afternoon if you need a pick me up, or save one for each day and read it when you wake up to start your day off on a happy note or before bed to ensure some sweet dreams!

Cracklin' a Smile


A New Hat

Her new hat flew off of her head.

She walked fast and then ran instead.

Caught up in the breeze,

her hat flew with ease,

till it perched on hair that was red!!



 A Wrinkle

 My grandma gave me a wrinkle.

When I smile, I get a crinkle.

Though you see it not,

a wrinkle I’ve got.

I don’t like it when you giggle!


Baby Awakes

Tiptoe around.

Baby’s asleep.

Don’t make a sound.

Don’t even creep.

Ah, for the quiet!!

Ah, for the break!!

Just when it’s calm,

Baby awakes!!


Blunderville

The tumble and rumble

of Blunderville

alerted them all,

that the quakin’ was real.

The quakin’ and shakin’

did go on long

and the Blunderville folks

broke up the throng.

They rushed to and fro,

around their town.

They blundered and thundered

till up was down.

The quakin’ then stopped

and all stood still

then they bumbled home

in Blunderville.


Didn’t Dance Anymore

The ballerina twirled all around,

when to her dismay she fell down.

She sat on the floor

and didn’t dance more.

Her pride, not her pain, made her frown!!
