Small children will love this gentle story about the origins and symbolism of the candy cane, in this kid-friendly, oversized, die-cut board book. Set in rhyme, J Is for Jesus tells the tale of the candy maker's evangelistic creation--colored red (for Jesus's blood), and white (for our purity when we accept the gift of salvation). The simple, easy-to-understand verses, combined with colorful illustrations by Claudine Gévry make this a Christmas book that kids will treasure. Measures 11" high by 8 1/2" wide. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
I want a candy cane too! Everyone loves a candy cane-but it's easy to overlook the meaning of this familiar Christmas tradition in all the hustle and bustle of the season. This sweet story reminds little ones that the candy cane represents Jesus' birth and the gospel message too.
Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again.

You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.
