I’m a single dad with two kids and a demanding full-time job. Telling made-up stories to my son and daughter was one of the most rewarding ways to connect with them. It helped them learn and grow, and it helped me experience life through their young eyes.
They kept wanting to hear the same stories over and over, so I started writing them down. As I read to them, I encouraged them to change the details, to make the stories their own, and I revised the drafts to include many of my kids’ alterations. I’ll always remember the expressions on their faces in these moments of bonding.
Eventually I decided to share the stories with others, and JenkoBooks was born. My goal is to make quality books available to other young families in whatever format works best for them. The books are available in print format and Kindle.
Each story is entertaining, maybe a little whimsical, and instructive—without being heavy-handed. That’s a priority for me. My kids got a sense of ethics, values and priorities from reading these books. But just as important, we smiled, laughed and learned a lot. I wish the same for you and your kids.
