    CJ is, predominately viewed as a writer of works for children, yet those works contain an approach that crosses all age groups. Her works can be humourous or filled with pathos. Her use of words can paint a picture of innocence that contrains its own profoundity. 'Daddy's Boots' is a perfect example of how CJ approaches her work. It is at once a portrayal of innocence and a need to abandon that innocence at times of trauma.

    Her children's works have an incredible universal appeal and if one is tempted to dismiss them because CJ classes them as Children's pieces, then you do so at your Peril.

    In her non-childrens verse, CJ carries over her approach to more adult themes. In doing so she presents a world that is deeply sad, incredibly humourous and sometimes intimate.

Best Poem of C.J. Heck

Night-Night (Children)

Night-night moon
Night-night stars
Night-night noisy
trucks and cars.

Night-night sand box
Night-night toys
Night-night other
girls and boys.

Night-night mom
Night-night dad
Night-night Boogie Man
who's not bad.

It's time to go to sleep now,
most all my night nights said.
Night-night blankie
Night-night bed.

My Shadow (Children)

I have a shadow hooked to me.
Sometimes he's big.
Sometimes he's small.
Sometimes he isn't there at all.

He doesn't seem to like the rain.
(Maybe thunder scares him, too) .
He's gone from me on days like that
'cause there isn't much to do.
