Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read for Young and Old Alike People were created to be loved, things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used. Jeffrey is an angel with a big heart. He possesses a talent that makes him dreamy and creative. He cares about all of the children on Earth and he ponders what he can do to help them. He is worried that narcissistic tendencies are becoming prejudices that lead to bullying and that the unique talents and gifts of each individual child are going unrecognized. God gives him a challenge and Jeffrey is keen to accept God’s challenge. Jeffrey finds his angel friend, Emanuel, who is a genius with numbers and complex puzzles. Emanuel agrees to help Jeffrey with the children of the world. And, so, God sends Jeffrey and Emanuel to Earth as infants. The angels grow up in loving families. When they start school, Jeffrey becomes introverted, his inability to shine in mathematical and scientific subjects are evident in his poor marks. He starts to feel inadequate and his parents are concerned that he is failing at school. Meanwhile, Emanuel, at a different school, excels in all of the difficult subjects, but hates art class. Emanuel changes schools and finds himself in Jeffrey’s class. How will the boys continue with their angel assignment and make the world realize their unique values for who they are? How will they convince their teacher and their parents that everyone has a different talent, that everyone should be praised for what they can do? Jeffrey knows what to do, but will people listen? Jeffrey finds his way is a story with a simple plot, but a very clear message. We are all unique in our talents and gifts and we need others to accept us for who we are. We live in a world where high tech/science geeks excel and are duly honoured, while those with creative talents are shunted aside and often put down. It is a narcissistic world, where those who have the connections and the brains succeed and those who don’t hover on the sidelines. It is a world where bullies are not just in the schoolyard, they are in the adult world as well. It is a world where people put things first and neglect the importance, the significance, the value of an individual human life. Jeffrey has a message for all of us and it is up to us to listen. Tammy Vallieres MacRae and Susan Lucente-Rizzo are combining their talents with artist, Jerrold Hewson, to reach out to young audiences in the hopes that the young generation will learn what so many of the older generation has failed to learn: that people matter, that individual talents need to be recognized and lauded. Jeffrey finds his way is an interactive picture book that both educates and allows the individual child to create his or her own vision of “Jeffrey’s” world. With teacher guides and suggestions, this book and the accompanying manual is a good classroom resource to help both the children and their teachers to realize the importance of being oneself – of being human. Jeffrey finds his way is a simple story with a big message, one that we all need to hear. This is a wonderful educational tool for both schools and church schools. Jeffrey finds his way is highly recommended by award-winning author and Allbooks reviewer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Allbooks Reviews, www.allbooksreviewint.com.
