I am still in disbelief that I have a grade 2 daughter and grade R son! Where has the time gone?
What’s so lovely about them both being so close in age and in the foundation phase together, is that they are learning so much from each other. Alyssa is now reading beautifully and is able to help her brother learn the basics. Her teacher is encouraging her class to read one non-school book per week which I think is a brilliant idea! Alyssa has taken up the challenge and in fact reading even more and often reads to Aidan.
So naturally, the kids were excited when they were sent a copy of local author Kayla Diamond’s new children’s picture story book, titled The Jellyfish Jiggle.
The Jellyfish Jiggle – A New children’s story book by local author Kayla Diamond
The kids were immediately drawn into the life of Jules from The Jellyfish Jiggle. I love the storyline too as it follows the theme of self-acceptance and courage to be who you are no matter what!
The story follows Jules, a young jellyfish who doesn’t quite move the same as all the other jellyfish she knows and gets discouraged by her differences.
Jules loses her lack of self-esteem and then finds herself in a sad self-critical bubble until she meets a very funky and confident Octopus named OctoRockto who teaches her the most important life-lesson she could receive – the ways of self-love and acceptance!
The book is written by South African local, Kayla Diamond – author, teacher, kids supporter and mentor, who has dedicated her professional career and life to helping future generations of children through inspiring stories that kids (and adults) can relate to!
