Today is Friday and after some time away (more on that next week, hopefully!) I’m going back to sharing new books. An author I’ve met through social networking sites, Janice Spina, has published book two in her middle-grade children’s series Davey & Derek Junior Detectives and I thought this was a great opportunity to get to know a bit more about her and about this series.

From the Author
Davey & Derek Junior Detectives is book 1 of a series of adventures and mysteries for middle-grade children ages 9-12, Grades 4-7.
Children’s books by Jemsbooks carry underlying themes with life lessons to help children learn to be kind, caring and accepting of others. In this middle-grade book the theme is about bullying and family relationships and how to behave in different circumstances. I hope children will learn the importance of being kind to others and that friendship matters.
Thanks so much to Janice for bringing us her new book, thanks to all of you for reading, and you know what to do (if you haven’t forgotten!), like, share, comment, and CLICK!
