Jenny Shanahan of Kent is the author of "Lost and Found: Jesus the Greatest Treasure," a children's book about the three Magi in search of the baby Jesus. As the Magi journey to find Jesus, children are reminded to think of Jesus as they look for the new places where the kings are traveling. The journey ends on Epiphany (Jan. 6) when the Magi reach the baby Jesus.

The book is available at Logos Bookstore in Kent; Grismer's in Akron, Macedonia and Stow; Our Lady's Gifts in Streetsboro; The Learned Owl in Hudson; and St. Joseph's Parish Bookstore in Cuyahoga Falls. Prices may vary. Also, books may be ordered by sending an email to lostandfoundbookorders@gmail.com and through the publisher at http://goodplacepublishing.com.

Shanahan has a bachelor's in elementary education and a Reading Endorsement from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, as well as a master's in curriculum and instruction from Kent State University. She taught kindergarten in Garrettsville for four years before becoming a stay-at-home mom.
