During our daughter's recovery from a traumatic brain injury
due to a horrific automobile accident in April 2010, I often made up little tunes and funny verses to make her laugh as I
helped care for her. Prior to even being fully out of a coma, she would watch me and listen, and she would smile.
It meant to the world to me! It gave me hope!While she is just now learning to speak, she laughs out loud when I repeat as many
of the poems and stories to her as I can. It is my joy to see her smile and hear her laugh, and I decided to continue
making up verses to "I'm a g-nu" and "I'm a g'nat" and then having the book published.The
entire children's book came together and I dedicate it to Major Kristine Ratliff, RN, USAF, for her service to our country,
for being a dedicated nurse, wife and mother, daughter and sister, and for being the greatest inspiration of courage and hope
I have ever known. With so much love,Carol Kline,Author
