This book is dedicated to a little boy named Jeffrey as requested by his grandmother. I met this grandmother at a book signing about two years ago. I unfortunately do not have her name and hope she will see this book and contact me.

I must admit, I love Janice Spina’s books, and I am sure children love them too. In this particular book, children will learn how to solve problems and find solutions.
Through the strong narrative, the author conveys a great message to young kids, teaching them how to overcome their insecurity and self-doubts, while building self-esteem and self-confidence. It is a great reminder that there is no limit to improving yourself, and that it always pays to be kind and sensitive to the needs of others.
Children will relate to the simple illustrations done in a child-friendly manner, created by John Spina. They complement Janice’s story, which flows easily and effortlessly.
