About the Author

Jessica Arnold writes books for children. Her first book, "I am Good at Lots of Things" was started when she was just seven and completed when she was twelve out of a need to write something that made kids feel good about themselves. Jessica thinks that self confidence is the key to getting through some of the pressures kids have to deal with. Her messages are always positive, and she illustrates her own books with her lively, expressive artistic style.

More About the Author

Jessica Arnold was born in Owosso, Michigan in 1999. She enjoys writing and illustrating stories for young children and her peers. Her first book, I am Good at Lots of Things was started when she was just seven and completed when she was twelve. Jessica was a hit on Amazon at the age of twelve with I am Good at Lots of Things. Her book about bullying Nobody Can Take My Happy Away sometimes surpasses traditionally published titles in popularity. At the age of fourteen, Jessica simply writes what she feels her peers would like to hear on a number of topics.

Jessica's first book was something her mother encouraged her to write. I am Good at Lots of Things was a story she began writing and illustrating when she was just seven. She was upset by the challenges she faced at school. She was reminded that we are all individuals with different talents, and she wanted to share that. Jessica is inspired to write by her own personal experiences. Her stories often begin with ordinary circumstances such as going to the optometrist for glasses or playing video games. If something resonates with Jessica, she begins with her notebook and pencil, framing out her story page by page. Next, she begins illustrating the story with color pencils or water color. Her expressive artistic style is unique to anything seen before.

Jessica's fictional characters evolve in every story. Jessica's characters face difficulties, disabilities and emotional challenges, but they always prevail, inform and unite people. Jessica wrote a story about being thankful for the gifts that she had been given instead of thinking about what she wasn't good at. Jessica feels that book publishing has a bright future because it is now open to a more diverse group of writers. She is honored to have the opportunity to be a young author who can write and speak directly to young readers and inspire them.

I read this to my six year old, and she liked it. She has since written and illistrated at least three of her own stories to share with family members!

I like things simple and it amazes me how the most complex ideas can be explained in simple language. What I wouldn't have given to had this book when I was a child. With all the anti-bullying this book would be a great addition.

Emily and her family move and Emily has to go to a new school. She was excited at first, but she soon realizes that going to a new school wouldn't be easy. Kids are mean to others that are just a tiny bit different and Emily unfortunately has to endure this behavior from others. Emily gets teased on the first day, and the teasing and bullying just goes on and on. The bullying starts to to bother her and make her fell uncomfortable, worried and made her have poor self esteem . It takes a strong, and mature person to overcome these things.
Emily's feelings are hurt, but she tried not to show her true feelings. Kids kept saying she looks different, she sounds different, and her clothes are different. All Emily, or any kid in this situation, wants to do is fit in. Kids in this situation like Emily in the book begin to close up and build a wall around her. She finally realized she is different from others and much more unique (Which in my opinion can be a great thing), and nicer than others. The other kids just don't realize what damage they can do when bullying or teasing other.
Fortunately for Emily she finds friends with the same interests as her. It's a great way to make friends! Her and her friends find ways to make things better for themselves, by talking about the bullies, drawing pictures to describe how they felt when people were treating them badly. There are so many good messages in this book it's hard to talk about them all. Arnold really sums up all the issues together in this great story about a teenage girl living a "normal" girl that just wants to have fun, live life, and have friends that share experiences together. --- The main message of this story is the title---Nobody can take your happy away... unless you let them!

My little girl at 3 years old was bullied in her preschool classroom. Now at four she loves this story because it helps her realize that bullies are hurting and that is why they hurt others. This has been a simple way for her to understand that there are other kids who like her, want to have fun and are not interested in bullying behavior. I recommend this book to other moms and dads and the preschoolers thru middle schoolers who are wanting to encourage their kids to stand up f or what is right in our society today.

This book is about bullying, but it's also about starting a new school. The girl starts out focusing on the negative bullies and she was unable to find anything positive, but then she realizes there are really only a few bullies and most of the kids were nice and she quickly starts making friends as well as helping herself and others. This book is very empowering for children! What a great young author! The illustrations are also very cute. What a GREAT book. I hope she keeps making more!

The message here is SIMPLE as the cover says. "Nobody can take my happy away" I love this story because it helps others to see that the hurtful things kids have to deal with daily. I am a writer of bullying and I too was bullied. My daughter now 13 has been bullied since she was 9 years old by the same group they do nothing about. This book encourages others to take that stand against bullying. Bravo…

Quick read. Fun book discussing a serious problem - bullying!
I will have all 4 of my grandchildren read this book or I will read it to the youngest and discuss their thoughts upon completion. I will also recommend this book to our Children's Church parents.
Thank you Jessica Arnold for making this a fun yet serious book that can be used by adults to discuss bullying with Children. GREAT JOB!!
