Realistic story and pictures

My seven year old and (especially) my five year old daughters love the books in this series. The stories are true to life and teach valuable lessons without being too preachy. The illustrations are beautiful and show the feelings of the characters through very realistic expressions and environmental details. In addition, I think it is beneficial for my daughters (who are not African American like Jamaica, the main character) to see that children who do not look exactly like them can have very similar experiences and feelings.
