Favorite Things in My World by MPH Published Author Kathy Jo Bryant

I’ve been honored and privileged to be able to publish Kathy Jo’s poetry in four of the Sweetycat Press’s anthologies. Her poetry is always warm, charming, and delightful to read. In those books, her poems ranged from the beauty of the Lilies of the Valley to the music of the Bowed Psaltery,  to pondering the strain of carrying a jug atop your head. In Kathy Jo’s newest book, “Favorite Things In My World”, written for children of all ages, and the child in each of us, included is her fascination with bumble bees in “Bumble Bee,” a tribute to giraffes in “The Gamboling Giraffe,” and her affection for bunny rabbits in “I Love it So.” Take it from me, her poetry is pure magic.
