The World of Yaya is proud to announce the release of the first book in the series, The Adventures of Jack and Yaya. “Jack and Yaya’s SNOW DAY” is an entertaining and high energy read about a fun, snowbound day for young Jack and his nanny, Yaya. The vibrant illustrations by HH Pax are sure to capture and stimulate the imaginations of readers around the world.
The debut title and overall series was inspired by the real-life relationship and anecdotes of six-year old Jack and the author, Yaya. The compelling stories chronicle their adventures and intergenerational friendship, while also teaching important lessons and tackling subjects including diversity, creativity, and fostering a love of learning.
“I started writing The Adventures of Jack and Yaya as a fun way of retelling some of our day to day experiences”, said Ardrey. “It started as something for just me and Jack, and grew into something that we really wanted to share with others. I hope that our stories inspire an enthusiastic love of reading for kids”.
In today’s climate, the book highlights a timely message of representation and affirmation for Black and multicultural kids. Black stories matter and Ardrey is glad to contribute a title to a genre that’s often-lacked diversity. It’s also especially fitting as November is National Literacy Month.
“Jack and Yaya’s SNOW DAY” is available for purchase on TheWorldOfYaya.com.
