FORMER HR EXECUTIVE TURNED CHILDREN’S AUTHOR & STAY-AT-HOME MOM JANNIE PILGRIM INSPIRES KIDS TO BEAT ANY ODDS THROUGH THE GIFT OF POSSIBILITIES
CHILDREN’S AUTHOR JANNIE PILGRIM RELEASES HER SECOND BOOK “THE BEAUTIFUL BOOK OF POSSIBILITIES” ON AMAZON.COM AND BARNESANDNOBLE.COM FROM THE POPULAR “THE PRINCE GARRETT SERIES”
New York, NY – Children’s author, motivational speaker and creator of the ever-growing “The Prince Garrett Series,” Jannie Pilgrim, takes readers on a new journey of adventure and discoveries with her latest book — The Beautiful Book of Possibilities. Inspired by her son Garrett’s love for reading, Pilgrim set out to create a story for children that emphasized the beauty of everyday miracles that can easily be missed amongst a busy world. From a caterpillar to a butterfly and a tadpole into a frog, The Beautiful Book of Possibilities opens up the world around us in an enchanting new tale as the main character Prince Garrett and his trusty companion his dog Zeus venture outside of their castle into the forest where they discover a world of possibilities.
“My intention was to create wonderfully illustrated picture books that made learning fun and that reinforced positive self-images. Like the main character Prince Garrett, I wanted all children to recognize their strength and realize their own potential,” says Pilgrim.
Pilgrim never imagined that her background as a Human Resource executive would eventually land her into writing children’s books. Inspired while walking together with her son and their dog through their neighborhood, Jannie would create stories to tell her precocious Garrett. These imaginative stories of a Prince named Garrett and his faithful companion Zeus quickly became treasured moments for both Jannie and her son Garrett. So invaluable, that Pilgrim began to consider the possibility of children all over the world sharing in these same stories about the treasure buried within and the wealth of their own potential.
“The Prince Garrett Series” is a multimedia series that currently includes 3 books, sing-along companion songs and a game application app (“Adventures in Garrett Land”) that can be found on GooglePlay.
“Positive suggestions are exactly what children in today’s world need more than ever to make better choices. Especially, in the multicultural society that we now live, I also thought it was important to highlight a main character of color as we expose them to a whole world of possibilities.”
