I have recently been introduced to a New 31-book series that focuses on self-esteem. Dona Rudderow Sturn, founder of the JNP Project has is launched the first-ever children’s book series focused on self-esteem development. The JNP Project, a self-esteem discovery movement for children (ages 5-12+), is now launching the first two books in a multi-book series, Jane & Jake’s Adventures to Awesome.

I love the positive messages in these stories. Self-Esteem is so important and unfortunately so many children have such low self-esteem.  As someone who has worked in the fields of child abuse prevention and domestic violence awareness, I highly recommend this series of books.  I read the introductory Prequel book: The Jane & Jake’s Adventure to Awesome: The Journey Begins and was very impressed with the story line, messages and illustrations. I recommend to parents, children, teachers and they would be great for counselors and therapists. 

In addition to a focus on building children’s self-esteem, JNP offers both unparalleled artistry and collaboration among published international authors in the story development. The 31 chapter-books, set in three series, are available in traditional as well as digital interactive book formats. JNP is already working with several schools whose students and teachers are responding enthusiastically.

This series introduces Jane and Jake, two elementary school aged kids, and a not so average goldfish, Oracle. The content and images appeal to all audiences while the continuous theme of nurturing character, courage and confidence in kids is attracting parents, educators and counselors. Both children and adults are drawn into each scene by the intricate and vibrant illustrations but are more subtlety affected by the underlying lessons. The characters’ internal growth is outwardly reflected as they literally start off as blank canvases and develop into very colorful and unique individuals.

The interactive website,, provides parents, teachers, caregivers and counselors the tools to help children develop confidence, strengthen self-esteem, and grow into assured leaders.

Book purchases will be made directly at or through Amazon, B&N, iTunes, Kobo and Google Play Books.
