Once, I Laughed My Socks Off

Children's poetry book. Once I Laughed My Socks Off by Steve Attewell

This was the first poetry book for kids that I ever wrote. I wondered if anyone would buy it!

Now it’s used in schools all over the world to help teach kids to understand and write poetry.

That’s Twice I Laughed My Socks Off

People liked my first book so much that I wrote another, slightly longer one. This one contains the most popular poem I ever wrote, The Worm That Wouldn’t Wiggle. Lots of people like that one on my Children’s poetry YouTube channel (where you can listen to some of my poems for free!)


Hey, you can listen to my poems on Spotify too. That’s me reading them.

Or buy all the poems from my first two books on Audible and listen in your Audible App.
