Good Day Orange County Interview

Best-selling author Lisa Caprelli sits down with the ladies from Good Day Orange County to discuss her book writing workshops, what it takes to get take a book from concept to publishing, and the release of her children’s unicorn books, Unicorn Jazz.

“So many people want to write a book, and many people have a story in them. We all come from unique experiences . . . in wanting to write my own book as a little girl and putting that voice down onto paper I learned how to self-publish along the way to create adorable children’s unicorn books.”

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. 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.”

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.”  

Reading of Unicorn Jazz by “The Reading Teacher”.

“Reading “Bee-ing Happy with Unicorn Jazz and Friends” allows children the ability to recognize and share the many joys of their lives like trying on your mom’s clothes or going to the beach with family and friends.”

“Unicorns have a global popularity in itself, and it will not be surprising to see creator, Lisa Caprelli, build this Unicorn Jazz ™ empire in the coming months and years.   She knows how to operate successful companies so it is not any surprise she can fill the hats of writing, planning, blogging, connecting with influencers on Instagram or Facebook, speaking in front of children organizations, doing author visits all while building and impacting the lives of children.”

“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.”
