Author Biography

When I was a little girl, I loved to play with my sister and all of our toys. We usually both received the same type of toy so we would not fight over them. I was talking to my mom one day. I told her I was worried about my toys when my sister and I grew up. I was very attached to my toys and wanted to bring them with me when I moved out of the house someday. I knew my sister would want to take her toys with her too. What would happen to our toys if they did not have their twin toy friend? My mom told me not to worry. The toys would find each other. This is how the idea of The Underground Toy Society was born.
My mom passed away due to breast cancer in 1995 when she was 43 years old.
I graduated from Southern Columbia Area High School. I went to Bloomsburg University for two years, and Thomas Jefferson University for two years. I am an Occupational Therapist. I have always enjoyed helping others.
I live in PA with my husband and two children.
I still have a soft spot in my heart for my toys. I saved all my toys from when I was a child. I could not let that piece of my life go. I never expected my own children would be so blessed to receive so many toys. The only problem was, it broke my heart to see so many toys not being played with due to an overabundance in the house. I told my kids they better take care of their toys and love them all, or they might just leave and get help from the Underground Toy Society.

The Underground Toy Society by Jessica D Adams is an adorable story where kids are made to think about the future of their toys when they grow up. Jessica and Jennifer did not have many toys, but every single toy they owned got their attention. While Samantha was Jessica's favorite toy, Stacey was Jennifer's favorite. As they grew up, they did not want to part with their toys and decided to keep them for their kids when they had them someday, and the toys did not mind. As Jessica and Jennifer moved houses, Samantha and Stacey got separated and were kept on new shelves, waiting for kids to play with them. They missed each other and Samantha's determination to find Stacey takes her on an exciting underground adventure. Will Samantha be successful in her mission to find Stacey?

The story is a fun read and kids will love the concept of toys meeting at The Underground Toy Society. The illustrations are delightful and breathe life into the scenes and characters, giving the story good pace and movement. The book is good for bedtime storytelling and can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The story will also make children wonder what will happen to their toys when they grow up, and how the toys would feel if they are ignored and not played with. Books like this are good for children to make them imagine and keep them entertained till the very end.
