Some Comments from Amazon Customers


   A Wonderful Children's Book About Self-Esteem! By Scott K.on July 29, 2017 Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase My wife and I made it a priority to read to our three sons when they were growing up. Now we are grandparents. We still have boxes of children's books stored away in our home with plans to read them again to our grandchildren. I purchased Paul's book to share with our six-year-old grandson. We recently sat down together and took turns reading the book. He loved it! One thing I learned when our kids were young was you can't fool them. If you share a poorly written book, they pick up on that. The story has to pull them in. It's no different for adults. It's also true that a well illustrated children's book is like icing on the cake when it fits right in with the narrative. Paul's book succeeds at both levels. The story is so pertinent and the illustrations accentuate the story perfectly. The best part, in my opinion, is Paul's book draws attention to God. Children will not hear about God's love for them in public schools. It's up to us, their parents. Pick up this book! I highly recommend it.  


  "Good books have a way of increasing the joy and health in families. I hope that our books, in the Sears' Parenting Library, have done that; and I know that this delightful book by Paul Samuels will. As a mother of eight and grandmother of eight, I love seeing the faces of my grandchildren when I read WHERE IS CHRISTMAS? With them. The People-Kids and Woody Squirrel paint a fresh new way of seeing Christmas and its meaning. Paul's book will give you many precious moments this like this to enjoy with the children in your life" 


"Reading to a four-year-old granddaughter is a delight every "Pops" should experience, and my experience just got better by reading "Where is Christmas." Paul Samuels has captured the innocent delight of Christmas through the eyes of a child and speaks it through the hearts of a delightful trove of forest critters! Telling the story of the SEARCH for Christmas makes for an adventure of childhood proportion that ends at the feet of a newborn Savior. This quest will become a new Christmas tradition in our family." --Ray Snyder, Author of The Business of Families, Senior Consulting Partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies



   Truly Touched By Emily Cohenon May 24, 2013 Format: Paperback Paul Samuel's poetry is amazingly heart felt. I laughed and cried. I could not stop reading, rereading, and reading again. His words made me feel as if I was there experiencing who and what he was writing about. Amazing! I can't wait to share these poems with my family and friends.     


By Lucia Goreaon June 25, 2013 Format: Paperback Paul's poems are the beauty of his soul. They resonate with the reader and have a touch of cleansing power that rejuvenates emotions and releases all apprehensions of unfulfilled dreams and expectations. His poems are a revelatory personal experience, a wonderful journey to the core of the heart, where he gently and skillfully invites the reader to penetrate. Intense and poignant, his poems make a clear statement.

Poet Paul Samuels


My Bride of 41 years, Arlene Bridges Samuels

These poets gave me inspiration  and a bit of courage.

  James Kavanaugh (1928-2009)   

“Will you be my Friend?”  Who am I? I am not sure.  Who are you? I want to know. We didn’t sell Kool-Aid together or hitchhike to school.  We’re not from the same town, the same God, hardly the same world. There is no role to play, no security to provide, no commitment to make. I expect no answer save your presence, your eyes, yourself. Friendship is freedom, is flowing, is rare. 

It does not need stimulation, it timulates itself. It trusts, understands, grows, explores, it smiles and weeps. 

It does not exhaust or cling. Expect or demand. It is-and that is enough- and it dreams a lot. Will you be my friend?    

 Rod McKuen 1933-2015 

“Some trust in chariots”    

There were those who must have thought us mad spending all that time and money we never had. Well, some trust in chariots and some in marble banks. Some of us just love each other and never ask for thanks. There were those who must have thought us daft from the way we cried together and the way we laughed. Well some trust in chariots and some in big machines, some of you save diamonds, baby some of us save dreams.       

Bob Dylan

“Blowin' in the Wind”    

How many roads must a man walk down Before you call him a man?   How many seas must a white dove sail Before she sleeps in the sand? Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly  Before they're forever banned? 

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind The answer is blowin' in the wind.   

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist Before it's washed to the sea? Yes, and how many years can some people exist Before they're allowed to be free? Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head And pretend that he just doesn't see? Yes, and how many times must a man look up Before he can see the sky? Yes, and how many ears must one man have Before he can hear people cry? Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind The answer is blowin' in the wind    

We all have a journey. How did I get here?

I love writing Children's Books. and  I'm committed  to providing the best children's books possible. My poetry has been described  as "words that Paint 1000 pictures. 

Many have kindly called me a "poet of the people." In my young-at-heart 73 years’ journey, my life tapestry is full of adventure and coupled with a grateful heart for all that has transpired.  Born in the South Bronx to Russian Jewish immigrants, I’m a proud first- generation American.  I partially credit my gene pool for my enjoyment of writing. I escaped the harsh South Bronx streets with a “PhD in Survival” by joining the US Navy where I fortunately discovered the south after overseas assignments. There, I met the love of my life, a brilliant South Carolina beauty queen. I fell instantly in love the day we met. She wore pink! I’m glad I’m persistent! It took me weeks to get the first date.  After 12 years of praying for children, God blessed us through adoption with our South Carolina born son and Romanian daughter when they were infants. I’m convinced that our now adult children have kept us young at heart. We are Baby Boomers with Millennials!    

Poetry has given me a lifelong creative outlet during many seasons including the privilege of serving others through my humanitarian professions with World Vision, Mercy Ships, Messianic Jewish Alliance of America, and Youth with A Mission. My travels and humanitarian work have taken me to Central and South America, Romania, Europe, Jordan, Israel and across America.      Now, in an active retirement I devote more of my time to writing, publishing, and offering poetry recitals for all ages. My hope is to serve others through words that inspire, encourage, and provoke conversation.

My poetry has appeared in many publications including as a finalist in MY SOUTH SPEAKS created by Ted Turner's Turner South, the Georgia Poetry Society, and my selection as a Poet in the Schools for the South Carolina Arts Commission. I’ve now published three books: Two children's books, WHERE IS CHRISTMAS and SUPPOSE (which parents say reminds them of Dr. Seuss).  In my third book, EXPRESSIONS OF LIFE I’ve gathered up poems I’ve written for the last four decades.

As you read my books, I hope you will walk with me through my words and that you will experience encouragement. 

 "Poetry is the essence of our thoughts and experiences poured onto the empty page taking the hearts and minds of those who read it on the journey beside us."  Paul Samuels 1976
