'Sarah's Poems and Nursery Rhymes' is a collection of children's stories and poems. The author's inspiration came from reading to her young stepdaughter. Often, she would create the stories as she went along, remembering the way her mother read to her as a child.
Sarah noticed that her stepdaughter's eyes glittered with excitement at the stories that were made up, more so than at the stories read from a book. This excitement made Sarah realize that other children might enjoy these stories as well.
