School Dance by Janice Spina is book one in the new series, Abby & Holly. Some readers might already know the two girls from one of the author’s earlier books: they were first introduced in Book 5 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. However, you do not need any knowledge of that novel to understand what is happening in the new series. I never read the other book, and had no issues with understanding and enjoying the girls’ story. Abby and Holly are excited because the sixth grade school dance will be soon. They are wondering whether twin boys Derek and Davey will invite them to go with them, but soon they discover a bigger problem. A girl called Justine is being bullied in the meanest way – a way which threatens her health and mental well-being at the same time. The two girls decide to become friends with Justine and find a solution to the situation so that everyone can enjoy the ball. But it seems like the bullies have come up with a new plan just a few days before the ball!

While School Dance by Janice Spina is obviously aimed at younger readers, I did enjoy the light, but quite serious read. It took me back to my own school time, but bullying then was something nobody every really talked about. And not much was done about it. So it’s delightful to see books like this in which the characters make sure that one message comes across: Bullying, no matter the reason, is not okay. The story encourages kids to be brave and stand up for the victims, and it shows that everyone will have a lot more fun if they all just get along. The language and reading level is suitable for pre-teens and young teenagers. The topics will feel familiar to them and it will be easy for kids to be drawn into the plot. It’s also clever to use a bigger font and many white spaces to create a book that makes kids feel like they have read a couple hundred pages. It will feel like an achievement to them, and will encourage them to tackle even more books.

Newsletter Jemsbooks for all ages! January – August 2020

Jemsbooks for Children PS-Grade 3

Here is what happened so far in 2020 from January through August!

This newsletter is a way to let you know what’s new to Jemsbooks.

This year began with a virus – COVID-19 in China which spread to US and the rest of the world. It has caused our world to shut down and keep everyone in their homes for fear of catching this deadly virus which has taken too many lives all over the world.

This is a time for all to hunker down and stay safe and well until this passes and stops infecting anyone else.

Janice has kept very busy writing, reading, blogging, editing and promoting her books. She continues to do this daily to provide you and your family with fun, creative and entertaining reading for all ages.

Please stay safe and well in your homes and keep your children busy with reading and their school work to encourage their minds to be creative and healthy.

I pray that you will all stay well and keep positive. This will be over soon and life will go back to almost normal. We have learned a lot from this virus especially how to wash our hands and stay away from crowds.

This has been a busy year for Jemsbooks. Janice has published six books, exceeding her goal of publishing four books in 2020. Also, her books won four book awards.

Book 6 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives, The Case of the Mystery of the Bells won a Book Excellence Award Finalist in January of 2020.

This new book has plenty of magic, mystery and fun for boys and girls to enjoy.

All covers and illustrations were done by Janice’s husband, John. He continues to create beautiful illustration and covers that bring Janice’s stories to life.

In February of 2020 she published Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series Book 1: Drystan and Durward Save the Day, a book for young children PS-Grade 3.

This series is an educational and magical, mystical series of six books. Two are to be published each year for a few years.

The Dragons have names that begin with the letter ‘D’ and are of different brilliant colors. Children will learn the letter ‘D’ and colors while they read these fun and comical adventures. Each book, as all Jemsbooks for children, carry life lessons that will encourage children to be kind, caring and respectful to others, friends are important and it’s okay to be different.

In February of 2020 Janice published a new book in the Abby & Holly Series, Book 4: The Hidden Stairway for MG/PT/YA readers. This series of books have won four awards.

In April of 2020, Janice published Book 2, Drystan the Dragon Series: Damara Helps Drystan Find His Roar.
