Jamie Newton is a little girl who lives in a small house. Her backyard is in the middle of the outback, in a land called Australia.

Kangaroos and Wallabies hop in the tall grasses. Koalas live in the trees nearby and Emus strut around. Dingoes howl at night and Platypuses swim in a small pond. Her favorite is the Kookaburra bird because it always laughs when she walks outside and that makes her laugh too.

Each day is an adventure. She loves to eat her lunch in a tree house her dad built and watch all her animal friends. Everyday Jamie picks which animal she will talk to that day.

Jamie learns a lot from her adventures, and you can too. She learns how to be compassionate, confident and serene. She learns how to keep her individuality, work as part of a team and promote anti-bullying!

Fig-Jam also learns how important it is to enjoy every moment of every day. After each adventure, she exclaims, "Fudge, I'm good, just ask me!" That's how, Jamie became known as Fig-Jam to her family and friends.

Join Fig-Jam and her friends in these fun-filled adventures. You can learn all these important lessons too!


Author Biography

Dr. Cristina Carballo-Perelman has been a physician for the last 30 years as well as a wife and mother. She has been a champion for animal rights and believes the animal world has much to teach us. She also believes that there are a set of core values that if taught at an early age will help children become empowered adults. These values include: compassion, confidence, serenity, individuality, teamwork, anti-bullying and enjoyment of each moment. She hopes this book helps teach these values to young children through the stories of a little girl from Australia. The author lives at home with her husband and 2 dogs in Scottsdale, Arizona.
