BC BOOKWORLD REVIEW:
ALL SYSTEMS JOE reviewed by: Louise Donnelly from Vernon
Despite Degrees in Psychology and business, Emily Madill insists motherhood is the most creative and challenging job she’s had to date. Her series of four Captain Joe books encourages children to cultivate accountability and empowerment at a young age. They are designed to help generate self-esteem by helping children learn conscious control of their thoughts and moods. Captain Joe to the Rescue introduces Captain Joe who employs an invisible ‘thought-zapping wand’ to select healthy thoughts. Captain Joe Saves the Day teaches children to eliminate self-limiting beliefs as Joe saves himself from a swampy pit. Captain Joe’s Gift teaches children about the importance of being authentic and believing in themselves. Captain Joe’s Choice similarly stimulates children to choose thoughts that feel good. The four books are sold together as a set, with a teacher’s guide.

Spend the weekend with Jake, a lovable, playful, typical boy who just wants to have a good time! Grateful Jake is sure to spark the interest of your young one as they can, without a doubt, relate to Jake’s lack of enthusiasm as he sits, uninspired on a Friday afternoon to work on a school assigned essay. “What to be thankful for?” he wonders.
Emily Madill and Izabela Bzymek illustrate a lesson we, as parents, are continuously trying to instill in our children, simply to be grateful. As children, with limited experiences and knowledge, it is difficult to “learn” perspective. Books are a gateway to these teachings. Let Jake’s experience be an eye opener, illustrating that the good stuff lies in the little things.
Life, every day, is full of things to be thankful for. The simple things are our greatest gifts. Jake’s time spent with his family and friends, with nature, doing activities he loves will be sure to ignite the reader’s sense of gratitude and is a good reminder to us all to not take the “good stuff” for granted.”
On the Captain Joe Books:

These subtle yet substantial stories can only bring enjoyment and awareness to younger children,” Adrianne Dartnall, Counsellor and Communication Skills Trainer
