Don't call me Sidney....Just call me Joe! Sidney is a poet and he wants to change his name to something more rhymable. SO he decides on Joe because Joe rhymes with lots of things. He forget his name is Joe when his friends call him, and it makes him mom sad before Sidney is named after his great-great-great Grandfather who was famous. Read the book to see if he changes his name back to Sidney !

Forgetful Sidney loves words. When he can't think of any words he likes that rhyme with his name, he decides to change his name to Joe and then can't imagine why he is getting so many calls for Joe, not Sidney. When his friends and his mom can't get used to the name change, Sidney comes up with a solution that makes everyone happy.

Especially fun for our family because we have a Sydney. :) We're going to use this book as an introduction to writing a poem about our names.

I write children's books because I am immature, or charmingly childlike, depending on your point of view.
