Poetry For Kids

​​​Beautiful illustrations and whimsical poems lead readers on a wonderful exploration of prehistory, all of which can be summarized by that all-important word: FUN.

Dinosaur Name Poems was Dr. Cunningham's big debut of poetry for kids. What began as his passion for poetry combined with his son's infatuation with dinosaurs and catalyzed by reading a ton of children's books, blossomed into the award-willing children's book.  


His second book, "Poemenclature: Poems About Your Body," was just released from Under The Maple Tree, an imprint of Knox Robinson Press.


All author proceeds from the sale of "Poemenclature: Poems About Your Body" go to charities supporting children's physical and mental health!

Poemenclature is loaded with humor, facts, and fancy [with] whimsical color illustrations ... Enjoy it!
