The World As I See It by Hailey Marie Johnson is not only a children’s book but also a book of art. Johnson is the photographer whose pictures are displayed in the book. Some readers may flip through the book fast, but if you actually take the time to read each description under each photo then you will see what Johnson sees.

The World As I See It is a book filled with photographs of nature. Not all the pictures are in focus, but that adds to the artistic element of the book. My personal favorite picture of Johnson’s in the book was “Fairy’s Umbrella”. I have never thought about the plant like that, but now I will tell my daughter that is what it is. I really like that Johnson wrote what she saw in each picture. Some of her descriptions made me study the picture so I could see what she saw. It is nice to see the world through someone else’s eyes once in a while. I do wish there were more close up pictures in the book, especially of the flowers.

I think The World As I See It is a good reminder to people that they should slow down and take time to actually look at all the beauty this world has to offer. Johnson has done a good job on this book and I admire her for being so young and able to see the beauty in things. I wish her the best of luck with this book and in life.

I have never read or found another book like this! That's a good thing. Actually, it's great! Do you ever just stop and either space out on your own thoughts or look at strangers musing over what they're thinking? The first part of this book is just like stepping into Jennifer Johnson's random thoughts and getting to just explore someone else's mind. It's fascinating! You get to learn why she loves to write, what her dog thinks (that thought, I wonder the most, when I look at my shih tzu's precious face) to thoughts about Jamaica, dreams, and prison. I don't want to give them all away but IT'S SO FUN! Then, you suddenly get to dive a little deeper into her mind with her poetry. Like I've stated, I'm not much of a poetry person but I LOVE THEM ALL! Since poetry is so personal to each reader and everyone takes something different away, I won't give any of her poetry away. You won't be disappointed though! I was lucky enough to get a signed copy which I will treasure forever :) Johnson not only has lovely thoughts, but she has such a beautiful soul. This book, I recommend bringing to the beach, dig your feet in the sand and just escape into Johnson's mind for a little while.

Our Journey
Our Journey by Jennifer Johnson, Hailey Johnson, and Jericha Johnson is a beautiful collection of poems based on relationships and family bonding, particularly between a step-mother and her step-daughters. It is about a family's growth and progress in their personal relationships. And it can be applied to all the relationships.I enjoyed all the poems in the book. The theme of relationships appears in all the poems and most of the poems make you feel that they are semi-confessional. The bonding between step-parents and step-children is explained. The poems are motivational and inspiring. The poets manage to express all the emotions. The language is simple and the poems are worded very well. They capture the essence of what the poets actually want to convey to the reader.My personal favorite in this would be 'Goodbye Child' where a mother speaks about how her child has left her childhood and youth and is beginning a new adult life. It is a feeling experienced by all parents, especially mothers when their daughters grow up.This collection is penned by three poets. All speak of family and bonding, the love shared between them. A few have sad emotions but they end on some positive notes, giving a feeling of hope to the reader. It's good to read poems penned by different poets in the same book. Similar emotions will be interpreted in different ways to the reader.

One Mind’s Words II
One Mind's Words II by Jennifer Johnson is a beautiful collection of poems that reflect on life, emotions, and the changes that happen in our lives. The poems are subtle yet emotional with a lot of depth and underlying messages to the reader. The Life Lesson at the beginning of each poem motivates readers more to handle their lives in a positive manner and it opens one's perspective to a wider plane.
All the poems have some meaning, some message, and much profound advice. The style is simple, appealing, and the use of metaphor is wonderful, making the poems classy and excellent. The poet has done different types of formatting for different poems, making the visual aspect greater. My personal favorite is 'As I Walk' which inspires a person to keep looking out for opportunities in life. 'Paths' is another beautiful poem. It is profound with a message and the imagery is wonderful. There is a lot of beautiful imagery in these poems, enhancing the visual aspect.
The poet also speaks about life's changes and how things alter as we age. The poet touches a relevant topic in her poem 'Nuclear Dream.' Abuse is something that many of us are subjected to and the author tells us to prevent abuse and save others and oneself from it. Overall, I was impressed by this collection. It is something that any of us can relate to and understand. I look forward to reading her next collection

Red Eyes

An amazing collection written with raw emotion, and powerful depth!
This collection, by now seasoned veteran in independent poetry Jennifer Johnson, is a beautifully, tastefully, artistically, crafted story of dealing with sadness and pain and rising out of it stronger and wiser. The pieces within are intimate, vulnerable, and brave (which has become a staple for this emotional poet) and paint an emotional mental picture for the reader in a sobering way. The poems in this book appear to be ordered in certain groups regarding with specific emotions and mental states which helps carry the reader through the journey with the poet. The book starts out in a rather painful, sorrowful place, then battles with those feelings, unwilling to accept them. Soon, though, the poems begin to deal with these emotions and, over time, the poet gets stronger from the pain and the darkness. What you have at the climactic end to the collection is a wiser, more philosophical poet regarding the world in a deeper way and a stronger person determined to turn pain and hardship into unfettered inspiration. This is a great collection of poetry and holds the power to connect with readers and with the world in a profound way.

One Mind's Words II
In Jennifer Johnson's sophomore effort here, she displays the same voice, and powerful vulnerability which existed in her first collection but now adds to this one beautiful imagery, metaphors, and wonderful prose! This is shown early on in the poem "Covered Up" which contains the best line in the entire book...Upon these sands of time we don't remember the treasures...other great pieces here include the hopeful and philosophical "Religion", the moving and clever "Inspiration", the romantic and sweet "Pleasure", and the eerie and chilling "Figure in the Door". As can be expected from her, Jennifer Johnson takes you on a contemplative and inspiring journey here, ending in triumph and personal strength which leave the reader wiser for having read it!

This collection is very moving. It is introspective, thoughtful and deeply felt. The author poses deep questions and writes with emotion. She is being genuine and honest in this book, which I enjoyed. A book that makes you think!

Here is another great collection of poetry and thought by a wonderful independent author. This one far more vulnerable and personal than the last which makes it a pleasure and an introspective journey to read. The first section contains some great philosophy and conversation starting thought reflection, but the second section steals the show! Beautiful, fluid, and in most cases, brilliant poetry showing an amazing level of maturity and evolution from the authors previous work. This book is a wonderful collection and a benefit to any mind and soul to read!

One Mind's Words
One Mind's Words by Jennifer Johnson is a collection of poems about life and life's lessons. The author has interspersed the emotions and the lessons learnt from life in the poems and has managed to bring out a very impressive collection. The poems have some message for all of us out there who have experienced the same emotions but have not really taken the time to think about it.
I enjoyed this collection because every poem has a message which the author has conveyed with elan. Each poem begins with a saying based on the author's lessons in life and observations. The language is simple and elegant and the wordplay is excellent, adding to the effectiveness of the author's thoughts. All the poems that follow the quotes express the views of the quote in a more detailed manner.
One Mind's Words has some inspiring poems which motivate you to change and take a look at yourself. It teaches you how to look at life with all its beauty and flaws. It is difficult to say which poem is good. All the poems have some profound thought in them which can help you change your thinking. These poems can capture the interest of any reader, even if they are not poetry lovers. It is because all the poems are written targeting the common man and the emotions experienced.Steven A Williams-Author, Poet
These pieces are written with such vulnerability, honesty, and intimacy, they can't help but to be deeply touching, and create quite a personal introspective look into the writers life. They are stitched together to tell a sad, inspiring, and hopeful story of love, family, challenge, strength, and triumph. They are also displayed in an original format serving the double purpose of being a child's advice to carry them through all the changes of life which is culminated in "My Child", one of the best pieces in the collection. This writer has an incredibly strong voice throughout her work which is one of the most important building blocks of a great poet!

Random Thoughts by Jennifer Johnson is made up of random thoughts, poetry, and inspirational quotes. The random thoughts of the author grace such varied subjects as ‘What could be keeping my dog’s mind busy’ or ‘What writing really means to me.’ Then come poetic thoughts of a similar vein, ‘Where there is death, there is also life…,’ ‘Walls of stone with history within’ becoming a castle, or ‘Soul selects her own society.’ The inspirational quotes also cover a lot of topics, from the mundane to the sublime, for example: “A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if no one believes it.”

Random Thoughts by Jennifer Johnson contains thoughts from the ever racing mind of an author. Truly random and therefore truly interesting, almost all the topics covered offer something new to ponder. The author's take on prisons: “They get to not work and watch TV and read all day. Nap when they want to and take more naps… Our justice system needs to be harsher.” Prisons definitely should be harsher than life outside, where one has to struggle for everything. However, the author has chosen more topics of negative emotions or sardonic humor than what we encounter in regular writings and with our simple lives. But for these elements, this is an easy read, entertaining and educating. The poems are a real treat, most of which are on emotional bonding; many of the quotes are inspirational in nature, and the author’s views on a bunch of topics are unique.
