Review

"Louey the Lazy Elephant" is a charming book about a young elephant that lazes about and finds himself in a pickle. As he habitually did, Louey oversleeps even on moving day, only this time he wakes up to discover himself all alone; his family and the rest of the herd have moved on without him. To Louey's credit, he does not panic. Rather, Louey immediately sets out in pursuit of his family and seeks the help of other animals along the way. In his quest to be reunited with his family Louey transforms! Acquire the "Louey the Lazy Elephant" and find out more about Louey and his eventful journey that compelled him to overcome his lazy ways.

I cannot imagine a more heartwarming gift than the dedication of this adorable, well-written and beautifully illustrated book by author Janice Spina and illustrator John Spina to their beloved grandchildren. Fortunately, all children and grandchildren now have the opportunity to get their copy of this gem of a book. Highly recommended!

From the Author

Children's books by Jemsbooks carry underlying themes with life lessons to help children learn to be kind, caring and accepting of others. In Louey the Lazy Elephant the life lessons are it does not pay to be lazy and if you are kind to others they will be kind to you in return.This is the first book from Jemsbooks written in rhyme and illustrated by my husband, John Spina. I plan to write many more books for children of all ages. It is extremely important that parents read to their children early and often. Children will learn to love books and reading which will help them lead happier and healthier lives.
