I am very excited to introduce my newest book.  Please help me welcome Jerry the Crabby Crayfish to my Jemsbooks’ collection.  Just click on the cover above for a link to purchase Jerry.

Jerry was a real live crayfish that we had in a fish tank.  He will delight your children as he has an exciting adventure and learns a valuable lesson.  It isn’t easy living in a fish tank every day.  There are bond to be problems.

Jerry joins his friends Louey the Lazy Elephant and Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon. Click on these titles to connect to Amazon for perusal and purchase.

My husband, John, is busily working on another book which we hope to have ready within the next two months.

Jemsbooks is the place to find a children’s book.  Most of my children’s books are written in rhyme about animals to entertain and delight children while teaching them valuable life lessons that encourage good behavior.

Thank you for stopping by to read about Jerry.  He hopes to meet you and your children soon.

Thought for the day:  Read to your children to help foster a love of reading and enable them to one day lead rewarding and successful lives.

    Jerry is another really special story, like Louey and Ricky. Everyone who has small children would love him! They will also be wiser when they learn the lesson that Jerry did, and they will enjoy the brightly colored illustrations.
