Gerbs in the House: Jaida’s Here

Gerbs in the House:
Jaida's Here

About the Book:

Be Courageous. Laugh. Embrace Your Uniqueness. Spread Joy. This is the story about Jaida; a friendly little caterpillar with a powerful message. A surprise visit to Mocha and Petri’s dollhouse leads the three to an everlasting friendship. Each day is filled with a new memory, until the day that Jaida stops coming to visit. As Mocha and Petri begin to accept the loss of their friend, they soon learn that Jaida’s greatest lesson has yet to come. Gerbs in the House: Jaida’s Here is a friendly children’s story about love, life, loss and transformation, inspired by Jaida Cumberland.

My Review:

Amanda and I thoroughly enjoyed reading Gerbs in the House: Jaida’s Here. It's the second time we've had the pleasure of reviewing a Gerbs in the House book. We find the photographs super cute and the illustrations are bright and friendly. Amanda really liked Jaida the butterfly and she was interested to hear about Jaida Cumberland, the real girl behind the story.

In Jaida's Here, the story brings a message of hope amidst loss:
"Although your time with Jaida was short, hang onto the memories you have because they are special," Mocha said.

I highly recommend this book for girls ages 4 - 8.
