Heroes come in all shapes and sizes - and JT & Mason is a fun, light-hearted story that shows us just that. This book takes an inclusive approach to storytelling, bringing a unique perspective on how to educate young children about basic hygiene and staying healthy. Although the lessons in this book are aimed at addressing safety measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the information is timeless and meant to inspire proper hygiene today and always.
The book makes no mention of viruses but keep the children at the center of the story. They are the little heroes of the day...
The message focuses on the things they can do to keep themselves (and all of us) safe, while reminding us of the importance of empathy when others are sick - operating from a place of fact, not fear.
A note from the author: “This situation we’re all facing [with COVID-19] is a psychological challenge, and we have to respect how hard this might be on kids, too. It’s for that reason I want the little ones to feel empowered when they (or their parents) read this. I have a 6-year old nephew - he’s my muse, and the star of the book.”
To provide assistance to those families facing economic hardship, 20% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to local charities. See the last page of the book for details.

JT & Mason Save The Day
Beautifully written and illustrated!!! Joy to read as a bedtime story:)
I really appreciate that the author understands how underrepresented Black children are in children’s books. I appreciate her creating a space for Black children to see themselves in such an empowering & positive light. There is no other book right now out there speaking on COVID-19 and the importance of following the CDC guidelines that represent children of color. I love everything about this book!! Thank you for showing my son he’s a superhero! Would highly recommend this to anyone who has kids!!!
Exactly the book I needed for my little one! Thank you!
