At this writing I have 19 children’s books for PS-Grade 3. Seventeen of these books are in rhyme while the other two are not. They all carry life lessons that encourage children to be kind, caring and sensitive to others’ feelings, help others in need and it’s okay to be different. Hop on JEMSBOOKS EXPRESS today with your children and peruse my award-winning children’s books today!

Drystan the Dragon and Friends was a fun series to write for children. I love dragons and I hope your children love them too. My dragons are not scary in any way. I created creatures that teach children how to be kind, caring and help others in need. They do make mistakes but learn from them as we do. I hope your children will love Drystan and collect the whole series for fun adventures in reading all year through. 

The reason I write for children is to encourage them to read and become lovers of books which will last for a lifetime. When I was young, I loved to read. I’d curl up with a book and escape into another world. I’d imagine myself as the princess or other figure in the book. It was exhilarating to delve into another world full of fantasy, adventures and fun. I never tired of reading and today am an avid reader of multi-genres. I hope you will encourage your children to become avid readers too. They learn by example. Parents – get reading today and read along with your children for some valuable time with your precious little ones.

The life lessons that this book teaches your children are:

Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series, Book 4: Delfina Solves a Problem – Delfina helps Drago love himself and teaches him to be kind to others.


This is a continuing fun series of adventures with Drystan the dragon and his friends. Follow Drystan and his friends as they meet a new dragon named Delfina. Her scales are many shades of purple and pink. She can solve any problem with just a blink. She may be small but is stronger than you think.
When the other dragons meet about a problem with another dragon called Drago who is a bully, Delfina comes to their rescue and promises to help them deal with the bully.
Read what happens when Delfina meets Drago.

This magical series is for kids PS-Grade 3! There are six books in the series with a different dragon introduced in each book plus Drystan – the star of the series. There are seven dragons in all – four are male and three are female.

It is a fun, educational series for children to learn letters, colors and good behavior, friendship, respect and kindness toward others. Check it out today! Your children will love the rhyming and descriptions of each dragon. There is a poem that introduces a new dragon to each book. All dragons’ names begin with the letter ‘D’ and their colors will be in brilliant shades of blue, green, red, purple, pink, orange and brown. A fun series for kids to enjoy and learn at the same time. This series will keep them occupied and happy all year round. Children will love reading these books and they may become their favorite books at bedtime and any time. The illustrations and covers were created by my husband, John.

I hope your children will love these books and enjoy them not only in the summer but all year through.

Here are some reviews from Amazon using promos.


5.0 out of 5 stars Learn to be a friend! Reviewed in the United States on December 12, 2021

Delfina Solves a Problem is book 4 in the children’s series “Drystan the Dragon and Friends.” It introduces young readers to a new character: Delfina, a purple and pink dragon that loves to help everyone, even if they are not her friends. Not yet … but things can change dramatically when someone like Delfina jumps into action. While interacting with Drago, a bully dragon who was not nice to her and her friends, Delfina learns that his misbehavior isn’t because the little dragon is a spoiled brat, but because the mischievous dragon has problems of his own that he must overcome, and he needs some help.
The author sends a great message in her new book, which teaches not to write someone off, but rather look for other ways to help someone in need, someone who is struggling with sorting out their problems.
The artwork is simple but sweet. It looks like what children would draw at age 4 to 8. So this book is a good fit for pre-K, kindergarten, and early elementary school students.
All in all, Janice and John Spinas have created another nice children’s book that will help children to control their behavior, face problems, and make friends in a peaceful way

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book – even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, heighten their creativity, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, enhance their health and welbeing and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Feel free to come back again any time. I appreciate your kind support and any reviews you may post wherever my books are sold.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
