A well written and beautifully illustrated book. It sparks the imagination. I cannot wait for more of the series!!
Not only is this book a great source of knowledge, it also entertains and inspires young readers to look around their surroundings and see the beauty in nature. With lovely illustrations and easy to read text, Jay the Jet Seed has quickly become a family favorite during bedtime. Make sure to add it to your collection too!
This book is incredibly!! I own a daycare and any book that can keep 8 children engaged and interested for the whole story is worth every penny!!! We love it not only because it keeps the children interested it also sparks the imagination and the amazing conversation that we have after is so special. I love watching the children afterward searching for jay the jet seed in the yard! Such a magical story would highly recommend it!!!!
Children’s books are not just for children to learn to read. As a parent or caregiver reads Leila’s Journey to a child, every single page is an opportunity for teaching and discussion of some potentially deep and difficult situations and feelings. This is most certainly a reflection of Cathy’s many years of working with children and knowing what does and doesn’t work in story-telling. As a parent-educator, I demonstrate the necessity of story-telling and reading to children. This is the book I’ve chosen to use at their “graduation” day, and the parents have expressed their appreciation for how the theme of change has been written. Colleagues have asked to borrow it, and it has become a staple in my family support practice. Cathy, I’m looking forward to making a collection of all Earth Whispers.
Jay the Jet Seed Is more than a story of a young jet seed; it teaches the value of intergenerational relationships and the wisdom that elderly seeds can pass along to younger ones. It teaches about the value of story-telling, of asking questions, and growing up. I love how this book teaches about transitions and independence, while still holding on to the relationships that develop during younger years. Cathy’s books are not just entertaining stories of endearing characters. There is a depth to these books unmatched by others. Another great book, Cathy!
