5.0 out of 5 stars adorable! 22 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a delightful story of a crayfish who wished he was a fish - at least until he had to rescue the fish from the captivity of the net...

It is a wonderful rhyming tale of his antics in the tank that children from pre-schoolers to lower school age children will find absolutely enthralling. Accompanying Janice's rhymes are some brilliant colourful illustrations done by her husband. There is a wealth of unimagined detail in the pictures begging children to interact and talk about what they can see and what they think Jerry and the fish might do next.

The story is made even more remarkable and of interest by the photograph on the cover of the real Jerry crayfish - one time pet of Janice and her family!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little story with a moral 20 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A lovely little rhyming story, with accompanying coloured drawings that are delightful and well done.

the story about Jerry, a crayfish whose only wish is to be a fish and swim around freely instead of being stuck in his hard shell-like body, is a good way to let little readers (and listeners) understand that everyone has a value and what is wished for is not always the best thing.

Very clever story lines in both of these publications that will be enjoyed by all ages....adult enjoyment becomes intensified by the expressions seen on a child's face as the story and art work progress...

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully entertaining and educational! 20 Feb 2014
By Sarah Mazor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In her new book for children, “Jerry the Crabby Crayfish”, author Janice Spina once again entertains young readers as she teaches them an important life lesson.

Jerry the crayfish, a cave dweller in a fish tank that was populated by various multi-colored fish, was a very unhappy fellow. Jerry was miserable and discontented with being a crayfish and was quite vocal about his desire to be a fish. But when opportunity arose for him to help others in the fish tank, Jerry realized his unique gifts and wished to be a fish no more.

Mrs. Spina lovely story telling abilities and her husband, John Spina’s fabulous illustrations make this kid book a must have!
5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gem 25 Mar 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the second book I have read by the author and I loved it. The repetition in the story and the message it reinforces should have children repeating "Swish, swish, swish, I wish I were a fish" all day long. Once again the illustrations by John Spina are a delight for the visual senses and the deceptively simply imagery is colorful and beautiful. Janice weaves another unique and interesting tale with a subtle environmental message about not interfering with what nature does best on her own. I also love the way she finishes each book with "The End" showing the behind (as in bottom) of each central character, which I think will have children giggling with delight. These books are best read out loud, with children turning the pages and listening, but older children will be able to read on their own without too much trouble. As an educational note: Janice introduces some exact names of some types of fish, never assuming that children would not be ready to learn them, which I think demonstrates her dedication to teaching and instructing children, as much as engaging them with the sweet little stories. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading Lamby the Lonely Lamb.

Children will be very curious about this little blue creature. Aquariums and fish captivate little minds to ask "why" and "how". It teaches us that we are all very special in our own way and by helping one another we learn much about ourselves. It also teaches children about the time and care it requires to have a pet as well as some science fun facts about Jerry molting. The illustrations will keep the children looking for more. I will look for more stories from this talented Author.
