Jackpants and the Sleeping Giant

We are so excited to announce...

The Adventures of Jackpants continue!

Just in time for the new school year, this fourth book in the series will be published the fall of 2017, just a few weeks from now.

In a nod to the old tale about "Jack and the Beanstalk," this book draws from a local landmark in the Helena, MT area called "The Sleeping Giant." Many of the characters from the previous books make a cameo, but the real star of this book is a new girl named Abby. She uses a wheelchair to get around, but one of her abilities is what saves the day. Like all the other Jackpants stories, kids are left with a meaningful lesson that will help them better understand some of their peers with disabilities.

We know that these stories have had a big impact on how children understand Jack's disabilities and these books have helped include him in the classroom. We want to continue to send that important message as Jack returns to school this fall. But this is not just about Jack. We know that many other kids have enjoyed these books and learned valuable lessons, many using these stories in their own schools and communities. We are so happy to keep the fun going!

You can order directly from this link, choosing the first option for $15, and the book will be shipped directly to you!

We have used Kickstarter to help with publishing each of the four books, because it allows people to order this new book directly, order all 4 Jackpants books, or become a sponsor of the project, if one feels led. Sponsors help get the book into the hands of each child in Jack's class, as well as classrooms around the state. THANK YOU to our rockstar sponsors!!

It's so much fun watching this process unfold from Jon's words and illustrations, to a book in your hands...

You guys, I love this book so much. Its message is so needed in the world right now. I can't wait for you to have it and for your kids to read it.
Pin It!
