ABC Jenny recently created some Australian curriculum based teaching notes for my Frankie Dupont mystery series. Her insight and knowledge of the Australian curriculum is incredible. The innovative and dynamic activities she produced to accompany my books, have proven to be extremely successful in engaging children in literacy. She offers a highly specialised, affordable and prompt service that I highly recommend. Julie Anne Grasso (author) www.julieannegrassobooks.com
abcJenny supported the publishing of my first picture book, ‘Digby’s Moon Mission.’ I was delighted with her educational review of my book. Jen was extremely thorough in her approach to my work and what it offers children in an educational capacity. Jen generously created age appropriate and curriculum relevant activities to accompany Digby’s Moon Mission. abcJenny’s expertise and passion for developing children’s literacy is evident in the resources she produces for all books reviewed. I feel honoured to be amongst those chosen, and can’t wait to work with her on my next title! Renee Price (author) www.createitkids.com.au
Working in collaboration with ABCJenny, Jenny and I developed a comprehensive range of teaching lesson plans for my book, Astro is Down in the Dumps. It was Jenny’s expertise and commitment to advancing children’s literacy that produced a book that not only met, but excelled the Australian Curriculum Standards. Working with Jenny was a breeze too. I found the process was not only easy but a joy. I am looking forward to sharing my next project with her.” Susan Day (author) www.susandayauthor.com
I was fortunate to have ‘met’ Jen Graham via an online facebook group ‘Just Write for Kids’. With over 400 participants, it is those members who are generous with their time, their sharing and their energy who stand out – and Jen was one of those!
It was Jen’s passion for creating meaningful context for children, ensuring their reading experience was enriched that was evident from the outset. As an author, creating beautiful picture books is one thing, finding the relativity to the Australian Curriculum is another. This point of differentiation for a product is another selling point, and if you are producing books independently, this is gold indeed! Jen created a teacher resource for my award winning book ‘Imagine’. The resources are comprehensive and generous. Jen found things in the pages of my book I wasn’t even able to articulate! She reviewed the book eloquently and posted the review on Good Reads – above and beyond what she originally offered.
Her blog is informative and useful – not only for parents wishing to develop a child’s reading and writing skills, but for authors wanting to create product which enhances this same experience. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jen Graham and ABCJenny to any author, illustrator or publisher. Emma Mactaggart (Founder / Creative Director Boogie Books) www.childwrites.com.au
