 “Ms. Caprelli did a phenomenal job telling a beautiful story about a kind and friendly unicorn named Jazz, who’s juuuust a bit shy. You see, Unicorn Jazz wants to be a singer, so her shyness is making things difficult for her. It’s not helping that she doesn’t seem to be fitting in with the variety of other animals at her new home in the El Paso Zoo. Fortunately, as tends to happen to people (or Unicorns!) who put good vibes out into the world, good vibes come her way when  he meets a raspy-voiced crow named Woof, who turns her life around.”  See his full post here:

Children’s unicorn books review: “The message behind the story of Jazz, is that there is magic in everyone, and it’s okay to be different.  To believe in yourself, even if no one else does.  This was the exact message I wanted to give my girls before they started this new journey…. also the books come in both English and Spanish.”


“Ms. Caprelli did a phenomenal job telling a beautiful story about a kind and friendly unicorn named Jazz, who’s juuuust a bit shy. You see, Unicorn Jazz wants to be a singer, so her shyness is making things difficult for her. It’s not helping that she doesn’t seem to be fitting in with the variety of other animals at her new home in the El Paso Zoo.

Laura's Books And Blogs Review

Unicorn Jazz is everything a great picture book should be. Jazz is a well-rounded main character who shy, introverted readers can relate to and all readers can admire. Meanwhile, Woof represents that rare breed of beings who aren’t afraid to be themselves and are a godsend for shy misfits who have trouble making friends. The moral of the story is acceptance. It teaches you that if you feel different from everybody else, embrace those differences, and others will respect you for it. Likewise, if you see someone who looks out of place, be sure to accept them for who they are, and include them.  It’s when Jazz tries to be like the others that they dismiss her, but when she stops trying, that’s when they notice her and the talent that she possesses.”

“These days as a mom I love when I find books that are not only enjoyable and exciting but also present wisdom. Unicorn Jazz by Lisa Caprelli is one of those books that teach kids self-acceptance, self-love, self-confidence and overcoming your fears . . . This book contains a great message for children to live by and really reminds me of the quote, “be a unicorn in a field of horses.” It is also full of activities that both you and your little one can do together after reading this beautiful book.”

Green Gables Book Reviews

“Oh my Goodness! “Unicorn Jazz” by Lisa Caprelli, is the tune I’m singing today! This is by far the sweetest, cutest, most encouraging book I’ve read in a while. It has a wonderful wholesome, “be proud of who you are” message. The illustrations are colorful and fun, the song is catchy and the message is so encouraging! This is the book that is going to be on every kids “to be read list!” A great reminder that even if someone looks different than you do, they have special gifts, just like you.”

About Lisa Caprelli

Huntington Beach Author lISA cAPRELLI

Meet children’s author Lisa Caprelli, a Latina mom on a mission to inspire kids to learn.  Lisa was inspired by Sesame Street’s combination of music, puppetry and talent to teach. 

During the pandemic, she found the silver lining for children to express themselves creatively while sharing HAPPINESS.  Utilizing technology platforms like YouTube, Facebook Live and Amazon TV, “Unicorn Jazz Presents The Thing I Do” was born. It has been described as a modern, educational and fun show for kids –with puppets, stories and with real kids — who could send in their short videos and merge them into a TV show series.  

2020 tested many of us and it was during that time Lisa did not stop her nationwide school tour of presenting and encouraging the arts, reading, writing, music, and storytelling … Instead of feeling defeated, she took the opportunity to impact more families in the quickest, most efficient way possible —  by producing and directing an online kids’ show!

To date, Unicorn Jazz, a multi-media brand has reached over 500,000 children through school tours, social media influencers, bloggers and podcast outreach!

Lisa uses her characters from the Unicorn Jazz series, offering social emotional learning in its books – turned some into puppets, Unicorn Jazz and Trezekke (pronounced tray-zee-kee) a zebracorn —  along with a puppet led game show — “Happiness News” — ocean animals —  original music soundtracks — like: 

  • The Friendship Song
  • Rainbow song
  • Make that smile a little bit bigger 
  • Baby, I love you …  
  • and more!  

Created with numerous talented kids, actors and singers, the show has talent ~ like 13 year old, Broadway star, Emily Isabel. Rhett Drennen shares his joy of reading — along with fun facts to make learning fun and imaginative!

Lisa Caprelli is an author of 16 books, a songwriter, speaker, and host of the Amazon TV show called UNICORN JAZZ PRESENTS THE THING I DO.   Directed by Lisa Caprelli and Produced and created with a winning team of kid actors, singers and writers!  Click Here for Lisa’s Bio & Press Kit
