Hop on JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS today with your children and peruse all my award-winning children’s books.

Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear was written and dedicated to a little boy several years ago that I met in Aruba while my husband and I were on vacation there. When he found out that I write children’s books he told me that his favorite animal was a polar bear. I promised to write a story for him about a polar bear and bring the finished book to him the following year I went to Aruba. His family goes to the same place as we do. He was thrilled to receive the book and so were his parents. I was happy to share my book with him.

It’s fun to share my books with children. It’s a joy to me when children are reading and enjoying them. I hope you children will enjoy reading about Jesse and learn this valuable life lesson.

Summer Reading coming for PS-Grade 3 from JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS! Showcasing – LAMBY THE LONELY LAMB!

At this writing I have 19 children’s books for PS-Grade 3. Seventeen of these books are in rhyme while the other two are not. They all carry life lessons that encourage children to be kind, caring and sensitive to others’ feelings, help others in need and it’s okay to be different.

Lamby the Lonely Lamb was third book I published, written in 2014 and dedicated to my little granddaughter who was three years old at that time. She had a stuffed lamby that she carried everywhere she went. My daughter bought another lamby just in case the first one fell apart. She washed one while my granddaughter slept with the other. Leah was just too smart and noticed they were different and called them by different names. Luckily she did not reject the second one but she insisted that she would only sleep with Lamby, not his twin.

One day my granddaughter asked me to write a story about her stuffed lamb but make it purple. Purple, at the time, was her favorite color. Well, after some ruminating about this I came up with Lamby the Lonely Lamb. She loved it! I put her photo on the back page with her Lamby. This book means a lot to me and her since it keeps her a little girl forever in my mind.

Blurb:

MOM’S CHOICE AWARDS – SILVER MEDAL!

Lamby is a very different lamb because of his color. He is lonely and only wants to be accepted by the other lambs. Find out what lesson Lamby learns when a little girl, Leah, comes to the farm where Lamby lives.

The cover was created by my husband who creates all the illustrations and covers for my books. I love this cover because it tells you in one glance about Lamby. He is so sweet and sad at the same time. Children love Lamby’s story and the happy ending too. Bring Lamby home today to share with your children. They will learn an important life lesson.

Lamby the Lonely Lamb – Lamby teaches children to accept differences and to be kind to others.

Here are some reviews from Amazon from readers who loved Lamby using promos from AllAuthor.com.

Word art Lamb

The next book that is being showcased is Jerry the Crabby Crayfish. Jerry was a real crayfish, a pet, who lived in a 20-gallon freshwater fish tank. He could be cantankerous at times especially when he was hungry. Those times he would tap on the glass to get our attention and let us know he was hungry. He also did not like anyone to tap on the glass back. He would angrily wave his claws at whoever dared to do that. My grandkids did that often just to see his reaction. They loved Jerry and were so sad when he passed. Me too! He was quite the character! I wrote this book to memorialize and share him with children everywhere. This book means a lot to me to keep Jerry’s memory alive.

Blurb:

PINNACLE BOOK ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNER!

Jerry is a crabby crayfish who all day long wishes he could be a fish. One day something happens in the fish tank that makes Jerry change his mind. Read about the valuable lesson Jerry learns.

The life lesson children will learn from this book is:

Jerry the Crabby Crayfish – Jerry teaches children that it is okay to be different, be the best you can be and be happy with who you are.

Summer Reading for PS-Grade 3 – coming to you from JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS! Spotlight on RICKY THE RAMBUNCTIOUS RACCOON!

This is the second post that I mentioned I would be sharing featuring one of each of my children’s books for your children to enjoy this summer or any time of the year. Here is the first one about Louey the Lazy Elephant. There are 19 children’s books in all, plenty to choose from about animals, in rhyme with life lessons. Hop on JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS and peruse all my children’s books today.

Here is the life lesson children will learn from Ricky:

Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon – Ricky teaches children to always listen to your mother.

Jemsbooks Express created by John Spina

Here is the second book I published, Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon in 2013. Ricky is an adorable raccoon who your children will love to meet. Please grab your copy today and bring Ricky home to delight your children while they learn valuable life lessons.

Blurb:

MOM’S CHOICE AWARD WINNER – SILVER MEDAL!

Ricky is a rambunctious or very active raccoon who likes to wander around to find something new to eat. One night during his foraging for food Ricky runs into all kinds of trouble. Will Ricky get home safely? Will he learn his lesson to listen to his mother?

This book was created after I observed some raccoons on our deck getting into mischief. We haven’t seen them back since. They were trying to get into our bird feeders and made a mess on our back deck.

In this story Ricky is a mischievous and rambunctious raccoon who ventures out on his own one night. What transpires is quite comical. Ricky gets into all kinds of trouble and remembers what his mother said about going out at night alone. Children will love this book which is done in nighttime mode to enhance the creatures and setting for raccoons. After all, they are nocturnal creatures.

Parents have made comments about this being so funny they laughed out loud. I love the illustrations created by my talented husband, John. I hope you will enjoy them too.

JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS (created by John Spina)

Young children are so impressionable that as parents and grandparents we only want them to read books with good family values and important life lessons. Jemsbooks are the kind of books that parents and grandparents love. The stories are about baby animals that teach children valuable life lessons.

This was the first book I published and it’s still my favorite. This was my husband’s first project as a children’s book illustrator. I think he did a wonderful job of creating adorable illustrations and a cover which brought this story to life. Some readers have told me that this is still their favorite too out of all my other children’s book. They love the crayon illustrations. It reminded them of their coloring days. I feel that way too. Since then my husband, John, has moved into doing more digital drawings like everyone else. That makes Louey even more special to me. John wanted to update all the illustrations into digital form but I said, ”NO! I love Louey just the way he is!” He stands alone and is different. It’s okay to be different. What do you think?

I hope children will love Louey as much as I do. Please introduce them to sweet little Louey today by bringing him home to delight your children. What child doesn’t love baby elephants?

Blurb:

WINNER OF SILVER MEDAL –  MOM’S CHOICE AWARDS 10/29/20 

Louey is an adorable but lazy elephant who likes to sleep late. One day Louey wakes up to find that the whole herd has moved on without him. Louey is very upset but he is determined to find his herd. Does Louey find his way to his family and friends? Does he learn that it doesn’t pay to be lazy? Take Louey home with you and find out.

I have always loved baby elephants. This story came to me one day when I saw some elephants on a trip to the zoo with my kids. I observed the mother elephant as she cared for her baby. I was amazed at her kindness and caring manner as she taught him what an elephant does. She was most protective of her baby. I decided to show this maternal instinct in this story.

Here are some reviews of Louey.

Here is the life lesson in this story that children will learn.

Louey the Lazy Elephant – Louey teaches children the importance of not being lazy and always listen to your mother.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Watch for more posts about each of the next 18 children’s books to entertain your children. I appreciate your kind support and any reviews you share with other readers. I hope you have a wonderful summer with lots of fun things to do and filled with plenty of reading for you and your children.

Another book for Summer Reading for 18+ – Lubelia Alycea – historical fiction/romance novel!

Are you looking for an unforgettable historial fiction/romance novel this summer? This is the book for you – Lubelia Alycea One Hundred Years! This book is dedicated to and in memory of my grandmother who lived to be 100 years and five months old. She died on Mother’s Day many years ago.

My grandmother (Avoa in Portuguese) was a formidable woman, cantankerous and unyielding in everything she did in her lifetime. I based the main character on her personality. Even though this story is a work of fiction, I did include some things she did – e.g. she got her license when she was 48 years old, she traveled alone to see her brother in Brazil, and she was a wonderful support when I needed help with my son. She was always there when I needed her. I miss her still today!

She loved to read romance novels and I am sure she would have loved this book for the romance I created and embellished just for her. If this has piqued your interest, please check it out today on Amazon below.

Blurb:

Lubelia Alycea leaves her native country of Madeira, Portugal to travel to her new home – America.

This is the story of how a strong, resilient young girl grows into a formidable woman. She must survive many tragedies in her lifetime, separation from family, sickness, death, betrayal, and a lost love. Will she find happiness and a new love in her life?

Will she be strong enough to face the storms ahead and still keep her family together? Will the secrets in her life destroy her and all that she holds dear?

Travel along with Lubelia Alycea and feel her emotions, trials, losses and happiness. You will shed tears with her as you feel her pain. I cried as I wrote this story because it touched on so many times I spent with my Avoa and how much I miss her.

Here is a book trailer I created with Animoto.com.

A quiet celebration of our 23rd anniversary!

This year we celebrated our 23rd anniversary. This year it was Father’s Day and also Juneteenth. It was a quiet time for us since my husband wasn’t feeling up to going out. He still remembered to give me some beautiful roses. I was thrilled! I wrote him a birthday poem which I do every year. He won’t settle for a regular card. I think it is extra special because I can put all my love into the poem. Of course I won’t share it here since it is private only for John’s eyes.

We were supposed to go out to dinner but instead I cooked one of John’s favorites, Shrimp Scampi. It’s one of my favorites too! It was delicious! I have to say even if I did make it.

Here are my roses.

John & I on our 23rd anniversary

It didn’t matter whether we went out or not as long as we were together. That makes it special. It was quiet but lovely being with my wonderful guy.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. May every day in your life be blessed with the ones you love as mine is. I am grateful for every blessing I have each day. Thanks to God.
