Children’s Books for Christmas!


Just in time for Christmas I dropped my prices on two children’s books, Louey the Lazy Elephant and Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon from $14.99 to $12.99 for Louey and from $13.99 to $12.99 for Ricky. Jemsbooks are now $12.99 for most of the children’s books in paperback. Kindle books are $3.99 each.


 Jemsbooks carries life lessons in all the children’s books that help children understand that it’s important to listen to your mother, it’s okay to be different, be the best you can be, don’t be lazy, be kind to others, and that friends and family are important.

Hurry and get your shopping done so you can relax a little. Shopping online takes away the stress of store shopping. I did all my shopping online this year and will be sharing my books with a lot of little children. When I give a child a book I love to watch their eyes light up with joy. It makes all my efforts worthwhile. Do you have a child or children in your life that you want to give some joy to?

Louey is a sweet baby elephant who likes to sleep late. But one day he wakes up to find the herd has moved on without him. Children will learn that it doesn’t pay to be lazy. This is still my favorite book! I love elephants! I think most kids do too! Does your child love elephants too? Please check out little Louey!

Ricky is a mischievous little rascal who ventures out on his own one night to forage for some tasty treat against his mother’s wishes. He runs into all kinds of trouble. Children will learn that they should listen to their mother. Kids laugh out loud over Ricky’s antics!


Jerry the Crabby Crayfish is one of my most popular children’s books. I am amazed because I didn’t think it would be. It is an unusual creature which my husband and I kept as a pet in a tank along with other fish. Schools love it to teach children about aquariums and that it is okay to be who you are. Just be the best that you can be. It has a fun repetitive theme throughout – Swish, Swish, I wish I was a fish!


Lamby the Lonely Lamb is dedicated to my granddaughter when she was three. She requested that I write a story about her favorite stuffed animal, a lamb, and make it purple. Quite a feat to do but I pulled it off! Phew! Children will learn that it is okay to be different.

Please check out all these books with life lessons for your children.
