Creating a male main character assists in getting little boys excited about reading early in efforts to help bridge the grade and educational gap.
  2. Little boys are affirmed, enticing them to confidently read all about J.R. and his travels.

For Minority Little Boys:

  1. Minority kids need to see themselves represented NOW! A major problem facing many minorities is rampant SELF HATE as a result of not seeing their value and beauty commonly displayed in society or in the media. It not only affects them but their counterpart majority peers as well. Lack of exposure and acceptance of something different leads to the devaluing of it simply because it is different and underrepresented.
  2. Accurate and Diverse representation of minorities. J.R. series will be the first of many children’s books representing the style, look and physical embodiment of minority kids. Young kids are becoming more stylish and expressive. Little boys alone are sporting various looks like curly bushes, braids, fades, Mohawks, Afros and so on. They should be able to see themselves in their literature, on their televisions and so on.
