About Scott Berry, Sr

Scott Berry is a writer, educator, and missionary. While much of his work is done as a ghostwriter, he sometimes takes time to write his own stories or poems. His ghostwriting work includes several science fiction/fantasy novels, full-length movie scripts, scripts for animated children's television programs, children's plays, and even some full length musicals.Scott lives near Albuquerque, New Mexico, with his wife, Zella, and their new dog, Tanner. Shortly after getting Tanner from a local pet rescue shelter, Scott decided to write some simple stories about their new terrier. He honestly didn't expect the stories to have such an immediate mass appeal. Because of the interest in the "Tanner the Tenacious Terrier" series, Scott is planning on writing several more of the popular tales.

Scott is also a missionary to the Philippines province of Bohol. He had visited Bohol several years ago and fell in love with the people and the culture -- and especially the children. One of his biggest concerns there is that over half of the children are unable to go to school because they don't have basic school supplies. Scott has taken on the project of providing backpacks, pencils, paper, shoes, and uniforms. In 2013, he gave out enough supplies to send 250 children to school His goal for 2014 is 800 children.

This is a fine little poem about a boy and his encounter with a dragonfly. Adults will remember when they gazed upon one and wondered about it. This is a short little poem, just the right size to read to a sleepy little one or even to yourself sleepy or not. One or more pictures of dragonflies would have been nice. Little ones would like to see and hear the poem.
