ebook review: Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear, written by Janice Spina and illustrated by John Spina

Janice Spina

Jesse is a baby polar bear who not only likes to ask a lot of questions, but also questions the status quo of all the things around him.

As tough as it is sometimes, his mother lets him express his opinions and just once in a while, lets him get away with certain things that are contrary to a polar bear’s best judgment.

In the end, mama´s patience pays off, as Jesse is saved by a dear friend that he would not have, had he followed traditional rules.

The book teaches little ones (and their parents) that sometimes, not everything has to be the way it has always been. It also reminds us to breathe deeply every time our little one asks us repeatedly why, why, why, why???

Janice Spina´s book is written in rhymes; it is illustrated by her husband, John Spina and it is part of their Jembooks.  This collection is focused in teaching real life lessons to children through the use of cute animals doing extraordinary deeds.

Both Janice and John have spent their lives educating children and they have poured all their knowledge into their Jembooks.

eBook review: Gabby and the Quads by Tina Frisco

Tina Frisco


Gabby is a single child that is about to have not one new baby brother or sister, but four!

As a parent, how can you make sure that your first born will not be filled with jealousy and insecurities when she sees four new babies come through the door? If you had siblings or if you are the parent of more than one child, I am sure that you know what I am talking about! If you felt you had less attention from your parents when they were struggling to keep the house together after the arrival of one baby, you can only imagine the consequences of a set of quadruplets.

In the book, Gabby’s parents decide to try a unique approach to get her support and secure her unconditional love for the little ones. Sure enough, Gabby reacts positively and is happy to lend a helping hand whenever it´s needed, which is always. The story has a happy ending, with the big family of seven enjoying each other´s company.

Tina Frisco is not a new author; we have talked before about her beautiful narrative style and her unique philosophy. This time, inspired in the recent events in her life, she has decided to take her message to the little ones. The book has the lovely illustrations of Amy Tokarczyk.

If you are a mother or a father trying to deal with your children´s sibling rivalry, pick up this book today and read it to them. If Gabby was able to turn all her love and attention to her little brothers and sister, I am sure your little one will be able too.
