What Readers are Saying About Jemsbooks!



Here is what readers are saying:

Sebastian w Louey

Louey the Lazy Elephant


The book taught a lesson. You should be helpful and not just lie around.

After reading, he even cleaned his room, so I guess the message landed!

This is a delightful and captivating read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Louey’s experiences in finding his family is told in such a way that keeps not only the reader but the child glued to learning whether or not Louey actually finds his family.

My granddaughter delights in me reading this story of a character who is in search of his family.

I read it to my nephew’s six-year-old daughter. She fell in love with the adorable Louey. As a children’s author and grandmother, I was glad to see her giggling. When we finished reading, she said: “Louey was not lazy, just tired.”

Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon Ricky cover

Loved it!

Children will laugh at what happens to Ricky as he humorously tries to evade the creatures of the night, whilst his mother is looking for him.

I would highly recommend this book to parents of school-aged children.

They will certainly want to read this book over and over again.

Wonderful lesson taught here and a great bedtime story
for kids of all ages.

The rhyming words and adorable illustrations are perfect together.

Jerry the Crabby Crayfishimage

My grandson asks me to read this book again and again and again.

Children will be very curious about this little blue creature. Aquariums and fish captivate little minds to ask “why” and “how”. 

Not only will children enjoy this entertaining story, but they will also learn an important lesson. It’s another incredible book by Janice and John Spina!

A lovely little rhyming story, with accompanying coloured drawings that are delightful and well done.

In her new book for children, “Jerry the Crabby Crayfish”, author Janice Spina once again entertains young readers as she teaches them an important life lesson.

Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear:

Jesse Front Cover

I love Jesse, he is my favorite book because Jesse was good to the seal.

Jesse is my favorite book because I like polar bears and seals.

Children, parents and teachers will love this story and they will remember the wisdom it shares.

The well done colourful drawings and rhyming story about a little polar bear, who makes an unusual friend, is ideal for the younger readers.

This story is fun for younger children and helps to instill the importance of being kind to others. 

 Another great story by Janice Spina with lively illustrations from John Spina.

Lamby the Lonely Lamb

Lamby Cover

My granddaughter loves Lamby, her favorite animal.

This is the best book in the whole entire world.

This is another wonderful book with memorable rhymes and lovely, colorful illustrations. Children and parents will love it.

I loved this book, a wonderful lesson taught about differences that one may come in contact with not only as a child but as an adult.

This wonderfully told story will engage and educate children. It is easy to read out loud and will resonate also with the adults reading it to their young children.
