In Zoo Nonsense, Author Don Clifford and Illustrator Olga Cruhm have combined their talents to create a wonderful alphabet learning aid that children, parents and grandparents alike will enjoy! Fun with words and how they can be twisted into off-the-wall sentences is the hallmark of Don Clifford’s Zoo Nonsense. The easy to remember limerick style of poetry adds to the overall enjoyment of reading Clifford’s wacky poems. Olga Cruhm’s artistry adds a visual treat and in many instances is just as wacky as the poetry.

Latino USA with Maria Hinojosa“There are some words, not many, just a few — that we decided, we won’t use them all the time,” said the late comedian George Carlin in his famous routine about the “seven dirty words.” If you aren’t familiar with it—the skit tries to pinpoint a definitive list of words you can never say on radio and television. Ironically enough, Carlin’s list of naughty words has since become more-or-less the industry standard of what you can’t say on the radio. It made us wonder—what can’t you say in Spanish on the radio? Nobody ever made a list for us!
