But First...A Word from My Publisher

"Get your kid's imagination going like Johari! Great book about the power of a child's imagination. My daughter really enjoyed reading this if she's really into chapter books. Plus it was great practice at the end for school as the author added some great summary questions for parents to ask their children. I think it inspired my daughter to get the pencils out and put down the Kindle!"

Johari The Great: "A boy, his imagination, and a freshly sharpened pencil!" by Naomi Dunsen-White is fabulous! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and the illustrations are a wonderful addition to an already great story. We need more books like this that capture young people’s individuality & celebrate their unique qualities & gifts. Love the questions at the end...very cool book. Five stars!

"The storybook, "Johari The Great" by N. Dunsen-White, tackles the importance and impact of youth having and following their dreams. This is done through the main character of the book, Johari, as he interacts with his family and an in-school contest. The book is designed to promote discussion(s) in a family or educational setting regarding different themes and interactions that are introduced in the story. I recommend the book for an individual reader, a family discussion piece or as a tool for learning in the classroom. "

Excellent book for our little one. He loves reading and this was a perfect book for him to read which inspired him more to channel his creativity and imagination. This book empowers and celebrates our little ones for everything that they are. A must read!!
Plus the illustrations are awesome.
"This is an excellent book for young readers. It is about a 5th grader named Johari who...loves writing and his favorite part is using his imagination. I like how this book also encourages readers to do the same. There is a great surprise ending, and you can see how close Johari is with his loving parents who are very proud of him. There is also a nice comprehensive questionnaire at the end which will further enhance readers' learning. Johari absolutely relates to the main character in his story: he sure is great!"
Naomi did a wonderful job creating a world of Johari. She has an engaging story that inspires the gift of reading and writing!
Bonus is she has an African American boy
as the lead character (#representationmatters) who discovers the greatness he has within. This is a wonderful, inspiring story.
