5.0 out of 5 stars Dragons to the Rescue! Reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2020″Drystan the Dragon and Friends” is author Janice Spina’s new series of fun children’s books.

In the first volume, “Drystan and Durward Save the Day,” Drystan, the main character, meets a new friend and together they go on an adventure. Though the red and blue dragons had a destination in mind, they altered their trip to help those in need. This lovely story with its good message is enhanced by colorful illustrations drawn by the author’s husband, John Spina. The Spinas’ successful collaboration is highly recommended.

My goal in writing for children is to encourage them to read daily to enhance their life through good health and increase their creativity. Please read to your children daily even after they can read by themselves. This is a wonderful time to bond, cuddle, and get closer to your children. They will love you for the time you took to spend with them. Please keep reading and I will keep writing! Happy Reading Everyone!

These Children’s books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Blurb:

This is Book 1 of a series of Abby & Holly books. These two girls were first introduced in Book 5 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series.
The girls are first cousins on their mothers’ side. They moved to the quiet town of Lindon, New Hampshire and live in a grand old Victorian which is haunted. 
The cousins are excited about attending the 6th grade dance. When their friend, Justine, is bullied, Abby and Holly, along with the help of a ghost and Davey & Derek, work together to formalize a plan to put a stop to the bullying.

If your MG/PT/YA have not read this series now is the time for them to begin the adventures with cousins, Abby and Holly. Each book is a stand alone story and can be enjoyed in any order. I like to begin with Book 1 to get into the characters and grow along with them. Happy reading!

Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier – My 20th Publication – March 2018!

I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on

Lucy the Talented Toy Terrier – published in March 2018

Lucy was my dog for 16 years ago. She had to be put down due to cancer that had metastasized to her kidneys. The poor little one was in great discomfort. When I put her down it broke my heart and my children’s. She was a wonderful pet, so sweet, sensitive to my emotions, loving and dedicated to me. She followed me everywhere. If I left her for just a moment she would kick up a ruckus. I miss her still!

This book was written in her memory. She did everything that I wrote about in the story. She was quite an entertainer and such a good companion. I tear up when I think about her even though it has been many, many years since she passed. Sigh!

Children will learn important life lessons in all my books. Lucy will teach children to be kind and caring of animals. Our pets are our life force. They keep us going in tough times for they are always there for us. They welcome us home even if we just stepped out of the room for a second. God gave them to us to heal our souls, open our hearts and teach us to love. Please be kind to all animals and treasure your pets for they are a gift to us from above.

Blurb:

This book is based on my dog, Lucy, who I had for 16 years. She was quite a character and did all the things that are in this book. 

She loved my spaghetti with homemade sauce, watched TV shows featuring animals, hated baths, “sang” when music was played, and had two cherished possessions, a knotted rag and a ball. 

I hope you will enjoy reading about Lucy. She is no longer with us and can never be replaced.

Check out these reviews on Amazon:

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book. Even more so when you read the book to them.

The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

These Children’s books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!

Thanksgiving – A Time to be Thankful for all that we have in life!

This year (2020), the year of COVID-19 Pandemic has been a year of many losses. One of these losses is not being able to have Thanksgiving dinner with the whole family. This is last year’s wonderful dinner at my sister’s house with the whole family, all 25 of us or more. I can’t remember how many there are now. It was such a fantastic time! This year it will be quiet for us but we will still have a turkey and our two good friends with us who we have been with throughout this difficult year.

These are photos from last year (2019). Enjoy!

Wishing you and yours a special Thanksgiving Day celebration. May we all stay healthy and be able to resume some form of normalcy in our lives soon! God Bless everyone!

Thanksgiving Turkey (I am salivating looking at this turkey from last year! My sister made a delicious turkey!)
Pumpkin pie (I make a fabulous pie!
Home is where the love is!
I am thankful for my husband, our families, and our good health!

A Time to be Thankful

by Janice Spina ((C) 2019)

It’s a time to be thankful.

It’s a time to be helpful.

It’s a time to be caring.

It’s a time to be sharing.

It’s a time to remember others.

It’s a time to remember that we are all sisters and brothers.

It’s a time to show love.

It’s a time to thank God above.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember that every day we should be thankful.

My family all get together for Thanksgiving to eat plenty of delicious foods, share wine, love, friendship, and catch up on everything that we have done since last year.

It’s a joyful time for everyone to be together again. With our busy lives we don’t always have time to get together during the year. It is a time to be thankful for each other, our joys, good times, and bad that we survived, and having family there to support one another.

I wish you all a lovely day whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving. May you celebrate life and all the good things that come your way. God Bless you all!

A new man comes into Mariah’s life that reminds her of someone she wants to forget. He threatens to bring back the horrors that she and her family once endured. While the one she wants to forget suffers from a horrendous attack that puts his life in jeopardy.

Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab – My 18th Publication – February of 2018!

I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on

Clarence Henry the Hermit Crab – published in February 2018

Get comfy and read a book!

This book was written in memory of a real hermit crab that inhabited our 80-gallon saltwater fish tank at that time. He is no longer with us. Clarence Henry was an entertaining fellow. He did come to us with one less leg and one less claw. These appendages could possibly have resulted from a fight with another crab at the pet store. I wrote this story around the fact that he could still do his job of keeping the tank clean in spite of fewer appendages.

All Jemsbooks carry life lessons for children. I hope this will teach them that you can do anything that you put your mind to and succeed in life. Clarence Henry teaches children to work hard and do the best you can do and be happy with who you are.

Blurb:

Clarence Henry is different from other hermit crabs. He came to his new home minus one claw and a leg. He needs to protect himself until he can grow new appendages. Will Clarence Henry be able to meet the challenges in his new water world?

Clarence Henry was a real aquatic hermit crab who lives in a saltwater fish tank in our home. We watched him interact with the other creatures in the tank.

He was resilient, intelligent, and a joy to have as a pet. We took some photos of him as he grew his claw and leg and changed shells. 

We shared these photos and facts about hermit crabs in the back of the book. I hope you will enjoy them. This book will make a wonderful resource for classrooms.

Check out these reviews on Amazon:

My goal in writing for children is to encourage them to read daily to enhance their life through good health and increase their creativity. Please read to your children daily even after they can read by themselves. This is a wonderful time to bond, cuddle, and get closer to your children. They will love you for the time you took to spend with them. Please keep reading and I will keep writing! Happy Reading Everyone!

These Children’s books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book. Even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

Another Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Baked Chicken

This is the 19th installment of Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Baked Chicken.

I put together this recipe for Baked Chicken which is quick, easy and delicious. I love easy and delicious recipes. Don’t you?

Here are the other recipes Baked Chicken, Chili,  Shrimp Scampi, Shortcakes, Pot Roast, Basil Pesto Shrimp, Spicy Bean Salsa, Stuffed Zucchini,  Cole SlawZucchini BreadZucchini ItalianoGrapenut Custard, Spinach Pita PizzaPortuguese Seafood StewMarinated MushroomsStuffed Portobello MushroomsChicken Marsala, and Rice Paper Veggie Shrimp Wraps. In the past I have also shared recipes for Portuguese Bisquits and Drunken Chicken.

Most of my recipes can feed 2-4. I usually have leftovers since it is only the two of us. I love leftover chicken!

Ingredients:

  1. Chicken wings or other pieces (4-6 wings or legs, thighs, breasts)
  2. Low sodium soy sauce
  3. Garlic powder to taste
  4. Ginger to taste

Directions:

  1. Mix together 1/2 cup or more of soy sauce, garlic power and ginger
  2. Pour over chicken in a plastic zip lock bag and shake well
  3. Let marinate for an hour or more (the longer it marinates the more flavor it takes on)
  4. Place chicken pieces on baking sheet spaced apart so they will brown
  5. Oven temp of 425 degrees for 50-60 minutes until well browned
  6. Enjoy!
  7. Serve with rice or potatoes or other vegetables of choice (I make rice and broccoli.)
Baked Chicken Wings

Note: This marinade can be used on salmon. It’s delicious too!

I hope you will stop by again for more easy and delicious recipes. There is always something good cooking in Janice’s Kitchen Corner. Happy eating everyone! Stay safe and well! God Bless!
