|Eli Ate a Fly by Corey Colombin
Eli Ate a Fly follows Eli and his friends in silly rhymes that depict the
fun-filled world of kids. There’s a fly to find on every page, like the

learn that Eli ate a fly, but he ate it by mistake and turns very, very
|Corey Colombin has been writing and drawing for
as long as she could remember, starting with
crayons and fat watercolor brushes. When she
grew up and became Mommy to five children, she
spent a lot of time drawing sketches for them to
color, and even more time reading books out loud,
especially books with bright illustrations. Eli Ate a
Fly is just the sort of book she would read to her
own kids … over and over again.
|Poor Me by Corey Colombin
This is a story about a little girl who wakes up feeling sick. Well,
maybe just a little bit sick. So her Mommy & Daddy take her with
them to run errands. All through the day she says, "Poor me," even
while she’s at the playground, and buying gumballs, and picking out
movies. At the end of the day, she wonders if maybe she’ll be sick
again sometime soon.
Poor Me is one of those "read-it-to-me-again" classics that kids will
reach for again and again. My daughter loved the illustrations, and
the storyline is so clever!
