Dr. Jonathan T. Jefferson

Author Dr. Jonathan T. Jeffersonabout this book: Does the giggle of a child bring back fond memories of your own childhood joys? For Jonathan Jefferson, the answer to this question is a resounding "Yes!" Imagine having such unique and fantastic experiences that only those closest to you would understand that those events were real; not make believe. Echoes from the Farm are memoirs from a time and place that the great artist of Americana, Norman Rockwell, would have felt obligated to illustrate.

One dozen summers spent on a run down rural farm in Macomb, New York, forever altered the way one young boy viewed the world. A world of wonder and possibilities was promised in the scent of birch and spruce trees ripened by the summer sun. A mother's love wafted through the vents of a long forgotten farmhouse smelling of simmering applesauce. Friends as earthy as Huckleberry Finn guided a city boy beyond his fears, and to a foundation of confidence that benefits him to this day.

Any parent or grandparent would love to spark their child's creativity by reading them to sleep with John-John's adventures. Adolescent youth would gain from seeing the rewards of over coming doubts and prejudices to learn something new. Lastly, educators of children the world over will be reminded of the exponential growth hidden in unadulterated play.
