Jaden Toussaint is a five-year-old who knows it all. I mean, really knows it all. Animal Scientist. Great Debater. Master of the art of ninja dancing. There's nothing Jaden Toussaint can't do.
This time our hero is on a quest--a star quest. JT wants to get a million likes so he can be a famous animal explorer who teaches kids stuff on tv (and possibly Broadway). Unfortunately, his parents won't even let him post the video. How can get a million likes if he can't even post the video? Never fear. Jaden Toussaint always has a plan, and you can read all about it in Episode 5: Mission Star-Power.

What Readers Are Saying:
"We read this as a family read before bedtime.The kids enjoyed the characters in the book and learned some creole dialect as well. I enjoyed the positive role model Jaden presented. Being smart is COOL!"
"Absolutely excellent. The author's depiction of a kindergartner is fantastic. My kindergartner really identified with Jaden as he also likes his teacher, has all kinds of friends, and is ALWAYS begging for screen time...As a Black parent, it's refreshing to read a book that's NOT about stereo typically Black interests, racism, or urban life. Buying Episode 2 TODAY!"
"Wonderful story! This little boy just comes to life for you! :) An excellent book to read and share with your children or just yourself! :D"
