Bing vs. the J-Crew
Bing vs. the J-Crew is a light-hearted, funny chapter book with tons of illustrations that children will love. Bing is a bird-loving, science nut who just wants to make it through the last ten days of school. He also wouldn’t mind being crowned Science Student of the Year on Awards Day. However, Chad and Braxton (the J-Crew) are planning the ultimate prank to get Bing. After Bing overhears them plotting, he joins forces with his best friend, Joni, to crush their plan.
Bing vs. the J-Crew is a fun book to read, and it has important lessons on bullying for children ages 7-9. Bing faces his fears; shows how to be a great friend; and demonstrates how to forgive. Bing learns that unlike mockingbirds and crows, children who are different can come together and be friends. It's a great lesson for Bing and for other children as well. Also, multicultural children’s books like Bing vs. the J-Crew are good chapter books for kids to read.
About Nadine Johnson (Charleston, South Carolina Author)
I was born on the island of Jamaica, but I currently reside in South Carolina. My love for writing began many years ago during college. However, it wasn’t until the birth of my son that I started writing for children. I write books that are fun to read, but also promote conversation between parent/teacher and child.
I founded my company, 123 Mango Tree LLC, to promote literacy through reading, music, and art. My collection features African American and multicultural books that inspire all children to dream and love themselves.
I've published several inspiring children's books and a chapter book over the last ten years. I've had also worked as a freelance graphic designer. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing from Shippensburg University, and a graphic design certificate from the Maryland College of Art and Design. I enjoy writing and promoting literacy through workshops and school visits.
