About the Author

"I strive to write stories for children that are fun, encouraging, and slightly educational."

Jared Auchter lives in Sussex County NJ with his amazing wife, his two incredible kids, and one ridiculously loveable silver lab.  When he is not busy writing down ideas for his next children's book, you will find him boating with his family, cheering and coaching his kid's sports, and just wanting to spend as much time as possible with all of his loved ones.

Oliver the Oyster and the Pearl Gifts

4 out of 4 Stars !!

"I had no idea this book would have such an influence on me when I decided to read it.  Even though this is a children's book, it has several advantages that adults and teenagers alike would find useful.  The storyline was well-developed, the characters were accurately portrayed, and the author's writing style was excellent.  The author's use of simple diagrams in this book is another unique feature that adds to its delight."

The Raindrop

5 out of 5 Stars !!!

"The author also infused powerful themes in his story, and they are essential to children's growth and development."

Oliver the Oyster and the Cheerless Clam

4 out of 4 Stars !!

"I had a good time reading about the interesting adventures in the story.  The descriptive narrative made the sea come alive."
"I particularly love the moral being taught by the story.  Children can easily deduce that being friendly entails showing personal interest in others, giving of our time, and much more."
"I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.  It is exceptionally well edited.  The story was well developed and simple enough for kids.  Children between the ages of 6 to 10 years of age will find this book interesting."
