Jemsbooks Go to Cotee Elementary School in Florida!

Jacob & books for Cotee Elem Florida I just had to share this adorable picture of Jacob from Jacob’s Book Corner. He is one of my littlest fans and with the help of his nanny, Mary C. Paul, he has given me lovely reviews on all my books. Thank you, Jacob and Mary! In the picture above, which was posted to Facebook, is Jacob sitting and Mary on the right with a representative of the school. Mary and Jacob took four of my books (Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon, Jerry the Crabby Crayfish, Lamby the Lonely Lamb and Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear) to the Cotee Elementary School in Florida to share with the children. I donated them to whomever Mary chose. It brought tears to my eyes to see this picture and know that the children there will be enjoying my books. I love seeing happy children. Thank you, Mary C. Paul and Jacob, for delivering my books to this school. Blessings to all! REMEMBER:  READING GIVES YOU WINGS TO FLY! -Janice-
