Jennifer's Friends
A Kid's Review
“I thout [thought] Jennifer Pennifer was a very exciting and cool book because...yes I have done the silly things Jennifer has. I also enjoyed reading it because her parents are there for her when she needs them.”
Shelley H.
“Jennifer Pennifer is a great book for very young children to older children. It's a good story with good values and the illustrations are wonderful. The author really understands children and their "misadventures" but brings it all together with loving adults.”
Additional Resources
Parents are the first role models for their children. They teach children how to cope with life’s stressors and how to appreciate life’s rewards. By loving and nurturing their children, responsible parents teach children how to love and nurture others. I hope you find these additional resources helpful.
