This is my first fiction book for young readers. It is a beautifully illustrated story with an Easter theme. It is about Josh and Jess, two little chicks, in a delightful, heart-warming story of friendship, love and forgiveness.
The two chicks on Sunrise Farm were best friends. They loved their life on the farm with Storm, the sheepdog, and Lucy, the farmer’s daughter. But one day Josh and Jess experienced something that changed their lives forever.
Inside this book you will discover:
- An evergreen tale that sheds light for children on what we celebrate at Easter.
- Exquisite, colourful, hand-painted illustrations for children to enjoy.
- What happens when we do wrong, and how your child can learn with Josh and Jess what can be done about it.
“Jess and Josh are so sweet. I honestly enjoyed the book. The lessons and consequences are easy to digest. But most importantly the book opens the way to discuss other lessons with kids without condemning or overwhelming them. Thumbs up!!!” Amazon purchaser
“The story is about a theft and the consequences, the hurt that it caused the owner of the item stolen, and what happened to the thief. Kids will realize and understand all of this and learn not to steal even when someone has something they really like and really want to have.” Amazon purchaser
“This children’s story tells of a friend who takes the place of another in death to protect the friend out of love… it could be a good springboard from which parents could convey the reasons behind Jesus dying on the cross and His resurrection.” Amazon purchaser
Read anytime, but enjoy especially with Easter eggs and Springtime holiday fun!

Parents and grandparents are revisiting their childhood and introducing these endearing tales to another generation of children. I am glad there is still a place for simple toys like teddy bears and other soft toys that children can use to engage in imaginary adventures.
In this story, all the toys want to do their own paintings, but things are not going according to plan. Spots run and be
I hope Jane Hissey’s stories
All the toys want to do their own paintings, but things are not going according to plan. Spots run and become stripes, stripes become wavy, spots becomes splodges, but Old Bear comes to the rescue and shows the other toys what working together can achieve. A beautiful brand new edition of Jane Hissey’s classic playroom adventure, The All-Together Painting.
“… This one is super – love the illustrations. Jane Hissey is great at conveying important messages to children, without being preachy. In this story, the toys are trying to paint pictures, but having difficulties, until they all learn to cooperate and make a painting together. I recommend this, and all the Old Bear books.” Amazon purchaser
