Children’s Books by Janice Spina

I love reading children’s books, and these two books by children’s author Janice Spina are superb.  If you have little ones in your life, or beginning readers, these books are the perfect stories to attract their interest, and yours. While about cute little animals, Spina weaves important lessons into her stories.

I can’t talk about her books without mentioning Janice Spina’s husband John Spina, who so beautifully illustrates the books with colorful drawings that tell her stories through delightful artwork.


Jesse The Precocious Polar Bear

Jesse the Precocious Polar BearSynopsis from the Book

Jesse is a precocious and very intelligent polar bear. He likes to learn about everything except what polar bears are supposed to know. Jesse has some surprising adventures and learns an import lesson.

My Review

Jesse wants a friend. Jesse doesn’t do what little polar bears are supposed to do.  While not minding his mother, Jesse gets into trouble and is saved by an unlikely friend.  This adorable story emphasizes not only the need to follow instructions, but also how to be a loyal friend.  The author’s husband delightfully illustrated this adorable storybook. It is sure to keep any young child entertained while teaching valuable lessons.


Lamby The Lonely Lamb

Synopsis from the BookLamby the Lonely Lamb

Lamby is a very different lamb because of his color. He is lonely and only wants to be accepted by the other lambs. Find out what lesson Lamby learns when a little girl, Leah, comes to the farm where Lamby lives.

Lamby the Lonely Lamb received the Silver Award for excellence in Children’s Picture Books from Mom’s Choice Awards.

My Review

Lamby fell into a vat of purple dye and was purple from head to toe.  The other lambs didn’t want to play with Lamby because he was different.  Lamby gets his wish to be accepted for who he is, not for the way he looks, a valuable message for young children.

Lamby the Lonely Lamb is a delightfully written and illustrated picture book for the young reader.  The author wrote it for her granddaughter Leah who has her own Lamby.
