Hey Jack! is a companion early reader series featuring
Billie B. Brown’s best friend, Jack.
From a parent:
Billie doesn't think in terms of what boys or girls should do she is just who she is. She and Jack (of Hey Jack) both navigate situations that young children are involved in. These books do a very good job of talking about how emotions are shown in other people as well as what they feel inside and making decisions based on those emotions. Lots of lessons to be had but in a very engaging and age-appropriate way.
From a teacher:
books make my 6 year olds feel like super heroes! They can read the
text fairly easily and thoroughly enjoy the stories. I'm a huge fan of
the wonderful life lessons learned in each book as well.
