Limericks – Jemsbooks – Jeffrey!

Jeffrey the Jittery Giraffe

I have come to the end of my limericks for Jemsbooks’ Children’s Books with my ninth published book, Jeffrey the Jittery Giraffe (2017). If you would like to read the other limericks go to Louey, Ricky, Lamby, Jerry, Jesse, Broose, Sebastian, and Colby.

Limerick

Jeffrey the Jittery Giraffe

There once was a giraffe named Jefrey.

Loud noises and sounds made him jittery.

His mother told him, “You’re strong

No matter what might go wrong.”

Now Jeffrey is no longer stressed and jittery.

Jeffrey is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Create Space.

Blurb:

Jeffrey is a nervous giraffe due to a terrible storm on the day of his birth. He remembers that day and is frightened of any kind of noise or unexpected things happening to him. His mother tells him that he is stronger than he thinks.

One day Jeffrey meets another giraffe who needs his help. Read this story in rhyme and find out what important lesson Jeffrey learns when he thinks of others before himself.

Jemsbooks’ children’s books are written in rhyme with life lessons. These books instill and promote good behavior and values in children. Jeffrey teaches children to be kind and helpful to others and always believe in yourself. Also, always listen to your mother; she knows best!

This book was dedicated to a little boy at the request of his grandmother. Unfortunately, I do not know the woman’s name or how to reach her to share this book with her grandson. I hope that she will see this book and remember her request from me and get in touch.

Ms. Janice Spina, a prolific writer of children’s books as well as books for young adults and adults, does it again. In “Jeffrey the Jittery Giraffe”, she created a lovely character, through whom she imparts a wonderful message to young kids and teaches them how to overcome self-limiting jitters and reminds them of the reward inherent in being kind to others. Lovely illustrations by John Spina. Great husband and wife teamwork!

Jeffrey is a nervous young giraffe because he constantly remembers the day when he was born. There was a loud, scary thunderstorm that day so any noise at all made Jeffrey afraid. His mama taught him a little rhyme to repeat whenever he was scared, but it didn’t seem to help. One day something happens that changes everything for him and Jeffrey learns an important lesson. This is another delightful book by Janice Spina and children will love it. They’ll enjoy learning about Jeffrey’s problem, and especially about the valuable solution. I highly recommend this entertaining story.

    This is just the cutest limerick. You need to write a limerick for every future book and include it in the book.
