Ignor and Ignora Ramus live in McGill, a town close to Mount Shamus. The two mischief makers were always up to something: shaving the cat, tripped Willy Wong, and threw rocks at Giant John’s hogs. The people in town gathered together to discuss how to punish Ignor and Ignora; their first conclusion was to spank the unruly pair. A tiny old lady from the top of Mount Shamus suggested “the punishment should fit the crime.” She declared the most effective means of stopping the children was to smother them with a hug and lots of love. The citizens agreed and a plan was formed, but the two children had been hiding behind nearby and heard everything. They stepped out and apologized to the citizens for their behavior. The tiny old lady from Mount Shamus reminded the citizens that the hardest part of asking forgiveness was forgiving yourself.
“Ignor Ramus: A Curious Rhyme” was written by Rob Myers. While children will enjoy the cute story, rhyming prose and whimsical illustrations, they will also respond to the books message about forgiving yourself. But the main message is one for adults; children respond to love. Most people who work with children will attest to the fact that children whom act out are usually the ones with something lacking in their lives; when that need is met, bad behavior is usually modified. “Ignor Ramus: A Curious Rhyme” is a wonderful story parents can read with their children.
