“In Joleen’s touching chapter book, The Emotional Theater Talent Show, the reader hatches into The Royal Forest just in time for the local talent show.  As the story unfolds, you get to meet the quirky and often humorous denizens of the forest as they get ready for their performances.  Through this tale, Joleen is able to bring emotional literacy and expression to the table in a way that is digestible for all ages.  The chapters of this book focus wonderfully on different artistic expressions, always subtly normalizing healthy interactions for the reader.  This book has the potential to impact its reader’s development and that makes it a step above!”                                                                                    - Jake P., Teen Camp Counselor
