Jaelyn and friends plan a Christmas List Party. While making their Christmas list, they receive a visit from Pop-Pop, who arrives with a bag of goodies. He tells Jaelyn and her friend’s great stories. Dennis Thompson creates a great story and song about sharing. This book is fun for children and families to enjoy together.
I was born in Los Angeles California and raised in the city of Compton. Compton is the city notorious for starting the gang’s crips (blue) and bloods (red) in the 1970’s. The city made famous by drugs and gang wars. Many children and teens that grew up in certain neighborhoods were easily influenced by this destructive way of life. Kids wore the colors red and blue without having the knowledge that the colors they were wearing were associated with a gang. There are twenty one thousand gang's in America. Young children are targeted and recruited as early as eight years old. Most of the gang members that are recruiting them are no more than fifteen years of age themselves. There are gang members that are in prison who are poisoning the minds of the youth and convincing them that if they join a gang they will be loved and respected. Many of these young children are unaware that the only thing that joining a gang will bring them is death. In other parts of California, the United States and abroad, troubled youth have started copy cat Crip gangs of their own. This is one of the main reasons why I got involved in making publications and music with a positive outlook on life. I want to show all children, teens and young adults that you can be well respected without joining a gang or using drugs. My series of Nighty-Nite Tales is about having fun and living your dreams. Save children, teens and young adults. Show you care and help them realize their dreams. Pick up a Nighty-Nite Tale and lend your support so all children, teens and young adults can be gang and drug free. Please check our TRUCE & SANCTUARY items and help your love ones feel safe from gangs and drugs. We are planning a TRUCE & SANCTUARY DAY MILLION PARENT MARCH on Washington, DC Please check with us for details.
