The Castle Across the Street: Prince Jackson Goes to School

About the Book

The second book in The Castle Across the Street series, Prince Jackson Goes to School is all about overcoming those first day jitters. After a super fun summer, playing with his best friend Lizzie in the new neighborhood, Prince Jackson goes on a new adventure; going to school for the first time. He'll learn all about following the rules, being a good listener, and just how fun school can be. There's also a surprise at the end you won't want to miss.

The Castle Across the Street series is available in e-book so that you can take it with you anywhere, without the hassle of lugging around multiple books.

The fact that you can download the Kindle app on almost any device, and have it available to you on all of your devices (phone/tablet), is super convenient. For a busy mom of two boys, convenience is really important to me. This is why I offer my books in all formats, including e-book. It just makes sense in today’s world. When you’re out and about, it gives you the ability and option to entertain your child in an educational manner, instead of just with video games.
