Miles and Jax, written by Kimber Iverson and Illustrated by Jill Pearson, is an adorable story about two friends who rely on each other and who get into some fun adventures together. At first Jax seems to be a little scared of new things. His friend, Miles, helps him to get over his fears. Miles also helps to teach Jax responsibility by showing him how to brush his teeth and clean their messy room together. By the end of the story, Miles is worn out from all their fun while little Jax is still excited and wanting to play some more, but Miles has gone to sleep.
The drawings tie in effortlessly with the written words and together they set the scenes beautifully in the minds of young readers. The friendship between Miles and Jax made me smile throughout the story. I especially got a giggle out of the chapter where they got in trouble for their messy room and had to clean it up. That is a constant battle in my house with my children as well. It was satisfying to see Miles's efforts successfully help to break Jax out of his shell to the point where he was no longer hiding and feeling scared. A good friend can provide us with strength and courage when they are by our side, and this story touched on that theme. I think that children will really enjoy this story and will want to see more of Miles and Jax's adventures in future books. Well done!
