Limerick – Jemsbooks – Broose!

Broose the Moose on the Loose

I hope you are enjoying these limericks for all my children’s books. I am featuring a new one in each post.

Here is the limerick for my sixth published children’s book, Broose the Moose on the Loose (2015). If you want to read the other limericks go to Louey, Ricky, Lamby, Jerry, Jesse.


Broose the Moose on the Loose

There once was a sad moose named Broose,
Who roamed the woods on the Loose.
He befriended a boy,
Alone but full of joy.
Now Broose is feeling foot loose!

Broose is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Create Space.



Broose is a sad moose who has no friends until he meets a young boy. Read what happens when Broose meets a boy with the same name as he.

Jemsbooks’ children’s books carry life lessons within the stories that help instill good behavior in children. Broose teaches children the importance of being kind to others,     accept their differences, and that friends matter.

5.0 out of 5 starsA wonderful story with an important message to share
ByDeanie Humphrys-Dunneon March 12, 2015

Broose the Moose was lonely. He had no friends. The other moose laughed at him because Broose was hurt by a bear. Now he had a big scar. One day Broose the Moose was walking in the woods when he noticed a little blond boy, playing with a toy. There was something different about the boy. One of his legs wasn’t very strong. Broose became friends with the little boy. Then he had something special to smile about. Broose found out he had something else in common with the little blond boy who limped. The illustrations are cute and colorful. The message of acceptance and friendship is most important. Children, parents, grandparents and teachers will value this story and enjoy it. I highly recommend this wonderful story by award-winning author, Janice Spina.

5.0 out of 5 starsAnother great lesson in kindness and understanding

Another great lesson in kindness and understanding. It is a hard lesson for young children to learn. People are easy to judge and be mean when they are afraid of the unknown. Always remember to be kind and don’t judge a book by its cover 🙂 If you open your heart and see beyond the surface, you just might find a friend for life like these two did!

Children will love this book about a moose who is sad and doesn’t have any joy in his life. The verse is written in rhyme which will be fun for children to read. They will love the colorful illustrations that highlight the story well. There is an important lesson to learn by reading this story that will help children learn acceptance of differences and the value of friendship.
