Another New Children’s Book From Jemsbooks!


Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey

Here is the cover of my new book, designed by my talented husband/illustrator, John. As you can see I have been very busy lately publishing two books. This new book is my latest children’s book for PS-Grade 1, ages 1-6. It is dedicated to my youngest grandson, Sebastian, who loves animals, especially monkeys.

I am excited to introduce, Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey, which is my eighth children’s book. As with all my children’s books I include a life lesson for children to learn as they read and enjoy the story. The life lesson in this book is to be kind to animals.

This book was a joy to write with my adorable grandson in mind. He just loves animals and I know he will love this book as he enjoys all Jemsbooks. LOL! His favorite part of my books is the last page THE END showing the back end of each animal in the stories. He is only 19 months so this is extremely funny to a baby and other young children. I get a kick out of watching him as I turn to the last page and see the joy in his face as his eyes light up and he chuckles, “Bum bum, Mimi!” It is just too adorable! What a wonderful thing – to be a grandmother! I love all my grandchildren so much!

I hope you will check out this book for your own children and grandchildren and watch the delight in their little faces. They will learn valuable life lessons and at the same time have fun reading books in rhyme with colorful illustrations.

      • You are a treasure, only right thing to do is share. After all there are far too many people in this world who refuse to share but would rather hoard. What good does that do in the end?
