Publisher's Summary

Giant afro. Even bigger brain.
Jaden Toussaint is a five-year-old who knows it all. I mean, really knows it all. Animal Science. Great Debater. Master of the art of ninja dancing. There's nothing Jaden Toussaint can't do. The only problem is that grown-ups keep trying to convince him that, even though he's really smart, he doesn't know everything. The thing is...he kind of does.

I Absolutely Loved This Audiobook

Some thoughts. As a grandma of three grandchildren ranging in age from 5,7, and 8, this audiobook has A LOT of appeal. It's cuteness scale for me is off the chart awesomeness. Knowing what my grandkids like and sort of how their little selves think, this hits the mark perfectly. My kids are in the military so I don't get a chance to see my grandkids as often as I'd like, but this is definitely a book and audiobook I'd send them.

J.T. EPISODE 1: THE QUEST for SCREENTIME is a wonderful children's audiobook that I highly recommend. I thought the three-minute dance party was smart. The entire book was smart. J.T. was so excited when he was assigned screen time homework until he's told it can be done without the computer. Loved it. Plus the epilogue where he has thoughts on when to have TV and screen time.

MARTI DUMAS is a terrific author of children's stories. Even I enjoyed it, with my 'I'm a kid at heart' thing. I think many of us are. I would love to hear more stories written by her and especially more with JADEN TOUSSAINT.

DICK HILL did an Amazing job narrating this audiobook. I was fascinated by his vocal range. He was so good and well, I'm just really impressed with this book and this collaboration. Wonderful job.

Last but certainly not least, the cover art by MARIE MURAVSKI is incredibly good. This is the total package. A no-brainer. One can't go wrong with this audiobook. It's also, in my opinion, educational.

- Teresa "It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing."

Great start to a series!

Seeing this was the first episode, I do hope Jaden Toussaint has more adventures and becomes a series. As a confident little boy, Jaden tries to find a way to get more screen time, which here means time in front of a computer or smart phone and not, as I first suspected, in front of a camera.

Jadon rows up in a loving family vaguely similar to the author’s other work. Jala and The Wolves, but that doesn’t take away from Jaden’s story (or Jala’s in her story). What I love about this book is the deliberately chosen language the author uses to describe Jaden’s perspective about school. Jaden likes school and homework and the author loves to write about kids who have a thirst for knowledge, which is the kind of book I want to read to my kids. I want my kids to like learning and not think that being smart is somehow not cool. I want the heroes of their books to like to read and get to know the world around them.

The narrator is fantastic and does a great job with voices and keeping a pace that allows the story to be interesting and engaging.
