The grandparent advantage 
As some of you may know
Is when a trantrum starts
You can just get up and go

What wrought this havoc in our house?

Our grandchildren came to visit.

 “Toddler Poet Laureate”  NYC  Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Author, Playwright Publishes New Book for Parents of Toddler Poems, “Adorable Scoundrels”
Howard Eisenberg, almost, 90, years young, shares his experience of raising 3 children, and poems about toddlers in his new book “Adorable Scoundrels”.
His beloved late wife, Arlene Eisenberg,  (“What To Expect in the Toddler Years”) who had Howard lead off her lectures by saying, 

“If you’re going to have a toddler, you’ll need a sense of humor.”
People always asked afterwards where they could get “the book.”  There was none then. Now, 20 years later,  there is “Adorable Scoundrels.” And, Howard dedicates every reading  to the woman he had two names for: Wonder Woman and Saint Arlene.
“Poems to make you smile, when you feel like crying”.
His three-book series Guess Who Zoo, Farm & Neighborhood, are filled with the whimsical Guess Who Zoo poems ballpoint-penned on postcards to his grandchildren in 1988 from a Qantas jet at 30,000 feet.
The interactive poems – last word left blank so the kids could guess the animal – were written on a book and zoo tour of Australia with his late wife, Arlene, co-author of the classic “What to Expect” book series.
As a result of a suggestion Arlene made 25 years ago, the postcard poems have been published by Mascot Books  and now has a blanket to go along with the book and c.d.
Howard has done readings from his books at schools, hospitals, and The Poets House.
The group produced a Guess Who Zoo CD. With the help of composer Sherwin Kaufman and producers Ann Ruckert and Jimmy “The Whiz” Wisner, he set out to generate “a buzz.”  and created a Guess Who Zoo Troupe to perform the poems as songs at children’s museums, schools, and hundreds of birthday parties.

He also has a one-man show about Baseball, called “The Pheonom” from his book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cooperstown”.
