“Okay, teens, let’s go speak some TBINKERKNESE.”

E.L. Thomas Sr. has created the Tbinkerknese language specifically to break down communication barriers with teens. Quips, like the one above, in this inspiring book of poetry will keep you engaged throughout. Inside, there are 101 tidbits of useful, practical advice for teens, parents, and teachers, all communicated in a fun way while retaining a note of seriousness.

If you’re the parent of a teen, or a young person yourself, you’ll love getting lost in the pages of this book. Hopefully, it’ll open up lines of communication thought to be lost and get you thinking about life. With lines to record your thoughts as you read each poem, it beckons to be used as more than just a casual reading device.

Sounds good, eh? It is. Some of them are funny, some make you stop and think, and others leave you shaking your head at the truths Earl dared to put on the page. There are lines after each poem inside for the teens to record their reactions in the printed versions, and note spots on the digital versions. We made it as interactive as we could in order to get young people to engage with the words and really think about them while reading.

You can check out this post for an example of the interior and a bit about the author.
