Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

"Four Girls: A Lot of Choices" by Toneal M. Jackson is an adorable look about the author’s children. Jackson is the mother to four charming girls. She calls them the 3 As and a J. The text is written in a simple and enjoyable prose. Like all children each one is different. On several pages she points out the many ways in which they differ such as the clothes they like to wear and the way they style their hair. Three like to sing and one likes to dance. Jackson thinks back on when they were born, how they crawled, walked, cooed and talked. There comes a time when they ask all sorts of questions. Like most siblings they can’t agree. Everyone wants something different for dinner. “As I lay in my bed, I thank God for my day And for my four little girls, my three A’s and a J!”

Jackson is right when she states they changed her world forever.
I love the way Toneal Jackson tells her girls that she loves them. This book will be a great legacy to them. For me the best part of the book is the photographs, especially the one with the girls and their mother. In the dedication she reminds them that no matter how old they get they will always be her “three A’s and a J.’ More parents should offer their children such an incredible legacy. This book is a celebration of motherhood. It also celebrates the differences in personality that each child presents. I applaud you, Ms Jackson.
