I DON’T WANT TO TURN 3: GRAMPS JEFFREY

Responsibility for your actions and justifying doing the wrong thing is at the heart of this children’s book that will teach not only Jordan are young man about to turn 3 values and valuable lessons in life but other young readers too.

Turning 3 presents a problem for Jordan who feels that his mother will expect him to be more responsible and take on more responsibilities.

Jackson is his cousin and they spent time playing with his dinosaur collection but that didn’t stop Jordan from taking them and because he’s two let him keep them. Jackson was not happy. He continued to do the same with other cousins and even his little sister and her dolls. Jordan seemed to feel that since they never realized what he was doing that it was okay, and no harm done. The fact that no one realized it is amazing or they never thought he would do that.

Things are about change when he turns 3 and a startling revelation and truths are found. His birthday party has everyone he wanted invited and remember they are the same people who’s toys he hid in his room. Presents given and excited about them until everyone goes to his room and Olivia realizes where her stuff was hidden and then so does everyone else. Imagine what they thought and what his father will do. Instead of ranting and yelling his father brought everybody into one room and each person told Jordan how they felt when they realized their toys were gone and how they feel right now . They sat in a circle and tried working it out. Putting on your solving problem that was a fantastic way for each child to decide for themselves what right and what is wrong. As Jackson spoke first and followed by the rest letting Jodi know that their toys are for everyone but belongs to each one of them. Sharing is the key and his Dad asked if there was anything he wanted to share with the group. Read and understand what his father says and what Olivia suggests as a solution. Helping others that are in need is a positive way to show that you care about the less fortunate. Olivia has a positive solution to the problem what do you the reader think? His Dad continues with what he states as the biggest lesson he can learn from this is caring and showing compassion for the less fortunate and his cousins. What was the right thing to do? Would Jordan learn the lessons alone or will his cousins follow suit and do the same thing?

Some endings are new beginnings and as Jordan learns the true meaning of honesty, family loyalty, understanding, compassion and taking ownership of your mistakes. Is there a significant difference between being 2 and 3? Think about it or is every age different and we learn more about ourselves as we grow older, more mature but our values and loyalties stay the same. Jordan : you might not have wanted to turn 3 but look at the valuable lessons you learned when you did as author Gramps Jeffrey hit the nail on the five-star head with this insightful and positive way to teach honesty and values. A great parent, teacher and guidance counselor resource and great fit family and school discussions. Life has a way of teaching lessons and at any age you can learn the true meaning of all of the values that the author has brought to light.
