How the Blue-Tongued Skink Got His Blue Tongue


In How the Blue-Tongued Skink Got His Blue Tongue, children will learn about The Garden story with a “Know What's What Tree,” about how Dinky got his blue tongue, and other facts about skinks, real animals native to Australia. Most importantly, kids will see Dinky face a bully and stand up for himself, becoming a reptilian hero. This story of good confronting evil will inspire curiosity about foundational stories, about nature, and about what it means to be a good person.

Latest Poem

Our untold story waits for its explosion

As our love ages more than we know.

The first time I saw you under a peepal tree

With your hair flowing in the air like

It has escaped all the aches and your lips

Weaving stories of a fairytale, I knew

It was you who warmed all my particles of heart

And now they are restless for an explosion;

An explosion of vigorous love, care and bond.

Everytime I sublime myself in the sweet essence of you,

I can feel the explosion of eternity occuring in my skin.
