Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

Poet Schober’s debut collection of rhyming witticisms serves as a paean to the joy of life. ...simple, unpolished verse that’s somewhat old-fashioned at times ...infectious.

...a tongue-in-cheek philosophy... Readers shouldn’t look for serious poetry here, but there are serious themes beneath the humor. Although life has its share of sorrow and hardship, Schober chooses to accentuate the positive in this collection.

The individual poems are untitled, which works well with the format...The white space and larger print provides an easy reading experience.

What a pick me p book...A great gift giving book that delights and gives u a warm and fuzzy feeling.. Perfect to give to a friend for a birthday or just a general Brighten up your day read. I am planning on ordering some to keep on hand for such a occasion. I did order my Mother a copy and her comment was "Its just adorable " Its a quick read so the person you give it to doesn't have to be a avid reader or have the time to read a book that takes them weeks to finish. The illustrations are very charming and makes you understand the sweetness of this book. Everyone will smile after reading this like I did.

I purchased this for my parents and Father-in-Law for Christmas this year after hearing about it from a friend. A great collection of poetry full of humor and astute observations around the latter part of life's journey. My Mom who hardly ever reads actually read a few out loud to the family! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Don't dismiss the quiet one in the rocking chair on the porch. Although her activities might have lessened over the years, they have deepened too, as beautifully expressed in the lyrical verse of EHR Schober.

EHR Schober's book, "Joys and Laments of Getting Older", is a charming little book on all of the things that go through our heads each and every day as we face getting older. But she has taken some of the gripes and concerns and has turned them into beautiful little poems that make one laugh and think that maybe these things aren't so bad! If you have a person in your life in their "Golden Years", I highly recommend getting this book for them. It's always nice to put a smile on someone's face!
