What "Gramps Jeffrey" Teaches

Jim Lamb Book Review

Jim says, “Gramps Jeffrey's Award-Winning Book "I Don't Want To Turn 3" Helps Blaze a Trail Out of “The Terrible Twos” By Jim Lamb To paraphrase Kermit the Frog, “It isn’t easy being three.” Maybe that’s why the Twos are so terrible: Who’d want to leave a world where you’re the center of attention? I wouldn’t. Would you? For example, a 2-year-old says “Cookie!” and cookies magically appear—if not, the result can be a Grade A, Number One, Category 5 tantrum. Why? Because, like the seagulls in “Finding Nemo,” everything is “Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!.”

Barbara Mojica Amazon Review

Barbara says, “ Jordan is about to turn 3 years old and he is not thrilled. He believes that up to now he has succeeded in doing pretty much as he pleases. Jordan swipes prized possessions and toys from his siblings and cousins. Then he hides them in his room. Up to this time, adults have made excuses for him, saying he is only two. Jordan must face the consequences when his "stash" is unexpectedly discovered in his room Dad sits everyone down for a serious talk. Jordan learns that bad behavior brings consequences. The large and colorful illustrations appeal to a preschool audience. Children can follow them while an adult reads the story aloud. One suggestion I have is that the text near the end of the story be spread out on several pages to make the story flow read better. Highly recommended read for children ages two through six. ”

Guitarpeace Amazon Review

Guitarpeace says, “This was an excellent book! An eye-opener into what our kids are thinking. this book is excellent because it teaches selflessness instead of being selfish. Very impressed with this book and an excellent learning tool!”

D. Jones Amazon Review

D. Jones says, “ I Don’t Want to Turn 3 is a such a fun book, I read through it twice by myself before reading it to my young nieces. I laughed at the “brat” named Jordan, who spends the book learning the author’s version of the Golden Rule. He learns that he is no longer a baby and has to treat others well. I’ll read it again to my nieces and again to myself and we’ll all learn one of life’s most important lessons. The illustrations are darling and ready for any one-year-old to point at. ”
