Author Brett Fleishman releases amusing and educational poetry book for grades 3-5

Twist and Shout! by Brett Fleishman, published by Mindstir Media, consists of 33 lighthearted and often educational poems that are designed for older elementary school students (grades 3-5). 

BlueInk Review hailed the book as “an enjoyable way for children to understand and appreciate the lighter side of the English language,” and goes a step further by stating that the book is “recommended for classrooms and libraries everywhere.” 

The book has an overall rating of 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon. One Amazon reviewer stated: “It’s 10:30 at night and my daughter should be sleeping.. Instead, I can hear her snickering in her room while reading this book. Really great for young kids! They’ll enjoy the play on words and funny drawings. Hope the author does more books for the younger kids!” 

“While my poems are intended to amuse children, in each book I include one poem that contains a life lesson,” said author Brett Fleishman. “In Twist and Shout!, the ‘life lesson’ poem is called Obstacles.  This poem informs children that while obstacles are part of life, they should not deter you from attempting to accomplish your goals. This poem’s accompanying illustration shows FDR in the Oval Office in his wheelchair.”  

Twist and Shout! is available online at, Barnes & Noble and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram Book Company or Baker & Taylor. The suggested retail price is $16.99.
