Warm greetings to you! I would like to introduce myself. I am Jocelyn Sophia Poesnecker, and I have authored and illustrated a new children's book, the first in a series, that is unique in nature. As a mother of five, and being a devout believer in God, I was upset with the lack of good children's literature available. After teaching children singing at a private school for 20 years, I now have devoted my time to producing truly good children's literature, with appealing illustrations. My objective is to present stories that show children the right way to live one's life, while being kind, wise, and loving. This series features a character named Naji, who is a seven year old boy who lives in West Philly. In NAJI'S TREASURES, Naji goes to the house of his rich cousin Zaynah, who graciously shows him her wealth in ABC order. When Zaynah asks Naji about his life, Naji explains to his cousin, in ABC order, about all that he has, although his family has little money. Naji is so gracious with his cousin and softens her heart. My hope is that many an adult will sit, with a beloved child next to them, and read them this story, which opens up many windows of discussion about what is important in life, and that we must always remember and thank God and appreciate the blessings. I dream of some people with means providing this book, and the others I have prepared, to children in need, be they students, patients in a hospital, orphans, or refugees. I want the dear children of the world to have books in the English language that are uplifting and truly beneficial. For teachers, NAJI'S TREASURES is a perfect book to use to surprise your students this school year with something new. Having been a teacher for many years, I believe that if you purchase one copy and read it to a kindergarten or 1st grade class, you will be so thrilled with the reaction of your students, and will wish to include reading this book now and then as part of your routine. In addition this is a beautiful book for the class libraries of 2nd and 3rd grade. I would so love to receive email letters from those who read my books, and I strive to answer all letters personally. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is 267 300 8999.
Jocelyn Sophia was born in Seattle in 1961. She moved to the Philadelphia area when she was eight, and lived there ever since. She is the mother of five children, and a grandmother of two. Since 1992, Jocelyn Sophia has been teaching children singing, and has related her stories to her students as well. “Naji’s Treasures” is just one of many of her heartwarming tales.
This book is very touching. It is good for children to be raised having such books read to them by a loving guardian. The pictures are delightful and the text is easy for a child to follow. This story teaches children to be thankful for what they have, and to be excited to use the wonderful blessings from God to only do good things in life.
