Biography

Jessica D. Adams writes children's books about The Underground Toy Society that aim to teach children to love and appreciate what they have, think of others, and hopefully clean their rooms. Jessica's two daughters are the inspiration for the books, as well as co-illustrators for many of the books. Jessica also wrote a short time travel chapter book, Meeting Grandmom, which is a great story for kids as well as adults to remember or talk about lost loved ones and family history.

Jessica has visions of The Underground Toy Society traveling around the world, with many books being created to help teach children to clean their rooms, appreciate what they have, and think of those who may not have as much. While the goals of the books are to help kids want to clean their rooms, appreciate what they have, and think of others, there are no guarantees that kids will learn these lessons. These books are for entertainment purposes and individual results may vary.

Smashwords book reviews by Jessica Adams

  • Meeting of the Mustangs on Jan. 15, 2016

    I enjoyed this story about the journey of a young black horse up to a strong black mustang. There were struggles along the way, but it was a heartwarming story and I liked the ending of the story. Thank you very much for writing this story and for giving me a coupon for the book for my honest review. I really enjoyed the book! Thanks!
  • Sam Sam and Marzipan The Cubby House on Aug. 04, 2017

    My daughter and I enjoyed this book. It is a sweet book, literally! The story is full of imagination, adventure, and chocolate, which is my favorite! The illustrations are bright and nicely done. The story is short and would make a great bedtime story for young children, around ages 3-6. This book really brings out the kid in me thinking of all the candy. I think it could bring up great discussions with children on how it is fun to imagine eating all the yummy goodies, but it is only fun to imagine. Not to actually eat all the goodies. It could be a great way to bring up self control as kids get older when parents aren't around all the time to monitor what their kids are eating. I think all kids dream of eating lots and lots of candy, and this book could serve as a great learning opportunity to teach them that it's okay to dream about it, just not overdo it in real life.

  • The Doll With Odd Eyes on Aug. 14, 2017

    This is a very heartwarming story. I enjoyed the book very much. A little more editing of the book would make it perfect. Children would love this story!
  • How I Cope with Multiple Sclerosis on Oct. 01, 2017

    This is a great read for anyone dealing with MS, as well as for therapists who treat those with MS to know what they go through. Thank you for sharing your experiences Angela and I wish all the best for you. I hope you will stay well and I hope you do not have any relapses. Stay strong and keep going! Jessica D. Adams, Author and Occupational Therapist
  • Charlotte Brown's Patchwork Quilt on Feb. 28, 2018

    I have worked in nursing homes for about 17 years so this story really holds true to what goes on with Alzheimer's disease. It was an interesting short story written well by the author.
  • Don't Feed the Elephant on May 14, 2018

    I won this book in a Goodreads ebook giveaway. I was so glad I won so I had to read the book, even though my kids are a bit old for the book. I would say the book is best suited for preschool age children since it is geared toward learning the alphabet. Children will not realize there is an educational aspect of the book though, because they will be so excited to see the pictures and hear the crazy antics of the elephant. One thing I would have liked to see in the book is the food names written a little differently. The food words were written in all capital letters on the photos of each food object. I think it might have been better to make the first letters capital and the rest lower case, since the main idea is listing food words in alphabetical order. Maybe even highlight each first letter to make it more pronounced so children would associate it more with the alphabet and sequencing of the words. This is because without an adult pointing out the words, I doubt preschool children would realize the words are in alphabetical order. In any case, the story was funny, and the pictures were cute and fit very well with the story. It is definitely a fun way to teach children the alphabet without them realizing they are learning!

  • Sophie Washington: The Snitch on April 22, 2019

    This is a very good book told from the perspective of a 5th grader about a bully at school. It is a great book to show kids how it is better to tell someone about a bully instead of letting it go to avoid being called a tattle tale. I would say this would be a great chapter book for kids around the ages of 3rd to 6th grades. I did find a few errors in the book, but nothing that couldn't be fixed with an update to the book. It didn't take away from the message of the book. Disclosure: I received a free coupon to download this book free and I am voluntarily sharing my review so parents know about this great book to shed some light on the bullying epidemic. Jessica D.

  • Ten Zany Birds on April 25, 2019

    This is an excellent book for kids to learn about subtraction. The illustrations are bright and colorful and go along well with the text. The rhyming works very well in the story. Each page could also be used to check addition facts because when it states how many birds are left, it also states what colors each bird has and how many of each kind of bird are left. This book is an excellent resource for parents/guardians and teachers of preschoolers and for early childhood education. I downloaded this book during a free promotional period and I am voluntarily sharing my review so others know about this great book. Jessica D. Adams, Author
