Some Parent's Reviews
Rebekah:"Oh, my gosh! Little Jesse (Jesse Can’t Say No) reminds me of my nephew. He’s always jumping in to help and many times makes matters worse, lol! Now we know why. He’s a servant. You developed his character so true to form."
A Parent: "My daughter, Kelly laughed and clapped her hands when the goats romped up on their stack of hay. She wanted to get some goats! Of course I told her we can't have goats where we live, but will see if we can find a farm to go visit. This is her favorite book so far. She even said, Mom, Tommy is like Jesse!"
