BOOK REVIEWS

JESTER LESTER AND THE MEAN GREEN BEAN by Joleen Sheldon

“I love the story.  What a creative way to teach emotions to children.  The illustrations are amazing!"

                                                                                                   - Sandy S., Montessori Teacher

THE EMOTIONAL THEATER TALENT SHOW by Joleen Sheldon

“In Joleen’s touching chapter book, The Emotional Theater Talent Show, the reader hatches into The Royal Forest just in time for the local talent show.  As the story unfolds, you get to meet the quirky and often humorous denizens of the forest as they get ready for their performances.  Through this tale, Joleen is able to bring emotional literacy and expression to the table in a way that is digestible for all ages.  The chapters of this book focus wonderfully on different artistic expressions, always subtly normalizing healthy interactions for the reader.  This book has the potential to impact its reader’s development and that makes it a step above!”                                                                                - Jakob Pasdertz, Camp Counselor 

“...Delightfully whimsical, insightful, educational and engaging...a loving and heartwarming menagerie of characters including flora, fauna, animals, birds, insects and a very endearing vegetable...through these delightful and vivid characters, a truly magical story emerges, and Mrs. Sheldon opens a window into a land filled with gentle yet powerful whimsy to illustrate how a simple apology, an acknowledgement of careless words and actions, can be truly healing, and open doors to communication and love.”                                                                   - Wendy Correa, Holistic Healer 

A delightful...novel reflecting how some amusing characters express their emotions with vocabulary that will knock your socks off!"                                                           - Katherine Ryan, Teacher
