Jayden & The Magic Pants is a work of fiction for children in a picture book format and was written by author Ashea Goldson with illustrations by artist Cameron Wilson. The story followers our pre-schooler hero Jayden, who gets teased at school because his pants keep falling down. No matter what he does or how hard he works, he can’t get them to stay up, until one day his teacher tells him that his pants are magic, and magical things do indeed begin to happen. What results is a delightful rhyming tale about changing your perspective and getting over teasing at school.
Author Ashea Goldson has an adorable concept for this book, which is sure to be enjoyed as a read-along with parents, and a great first read for those just becoming independent with their books. The illustrations provided by artist Cameron Wilson are full of life and vivid color, which only adds to the carefree spirit of the book. Jayden is sweet and relatable as a protagonist for all children to appreciate. One of the things I really enjoyed a lot was that the rhymes were never forced, and Goldson’s grammar and language always stayed within the appropriate level for the age of the readership. As such, it makes the book both fun to sound out and easy to access for parents and their children alike. Overall, Jayden & The Magic Pants is a recommended picture book with great messages about self-confidence and perspective: a book for kids to treasure.
