Ages 10 and under
This is not any everyday children’s book. The purpose of Jameon’s Closet (according to the second page and back cover) is “… a story written to help children acknowledge and respect their feelings… even the hard ones. It is meant as a resource for counselors, therapists, and educators who work with children.”
This story is sweet and humorous. The authors’ points are obvious, but done very well. Jameon’s Closet shows kids that it’s okay to need help, shows how to take things slowly, explains hidden feelings, and teaches kids how to recognize when others might need help.
Not only is the message and presentation of this book great, but the adorable pictures are, too! I was really impressed with this book, and I think it is a great teaching tool.
