Jasmine Is a Gift is a touching story that builds on the theme that love and family come in various packages. Sharon Ray is skilled in creating a feel good atmosphere. All of her children's books integrate music, art, multiculturalism, inspiration, and follow-up activities that encourage complex thinking skills. The geography pages at the back are fun and enriching. The songs on the CDs in all of Sharon Ray's children's books are first rate as well. Much more than just books, her stories are holistic, well-rounded experiences, offering warmth, learning, creativity, joy, and thoughtfulness. I heartily recommend this series and the Books for Buddies program that provides her books to children in hospitals and foster care. --Dr. Amalya Nattiv, Former director of The Center for Teaching Excellence, New Mexico
