About Unicorn Jazz

Unicorn Jazz a series, is about a shy unicorn named Jazz who moves to the magical land of El Paso but struggles to make new animal friends. With encouragement from her mother’s special song, Jazz learns to be brave, confident and, most importantly, herself.

Unicorn Jazz engages young readers while imparting valuable life lessons and social emotional intelligence such as learning about the power of confidence, the value of diversity and why we should celebrate what makes us unique. The imaginative stories include colorful hand-drawn characters – not computer generated art – that children enjoy over and over.  The Unicorn Jazz brand is on track to achieve success parallel to the most well-known brands in children’s literature and goods.   Including messages about kindness and anti bullying is just one of the many social emotional lessons we can share with children.

They instill a mindset of being the best you that you can possibly be and teach children the importance of friendship and appreciating the differences in others. I highly recommend this entire series!” -Jennifer Quattrucci, Mom, Teacher and author of educational curriculum
