Tori Struggles to Read

Tori is a little red panda who loves to bake with her grandma, Pandma.

Pandma gave Tori her treasured cookbook with yummy recipes to bake and share her tasty treats with her friends.

There's one problem.  Tori never told anyone that she struggled to read.              How will she read her Pandma's cookbook?

Everything changed when she met Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and his friends.  Asking for help and working with mentors became the key to her success.

NEW Book Series!

Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and Friends

We are excited to announce "Tori Struggles to Read" the second book in the Jigsaw Grant series.

                 Our first book, Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe~ Different Is More, released in 2018, sold over 14,000 books (hardcover and paperback books),                        and garnered recognition by The Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation and the Texas Governor’s Committee for People with Disabilities.

The overwhelming response towards the first book has inspired Julie to write a series of books called, Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and Friends.

                               Characters are based on their real-life-friends living with disabilities or challenges. But, in the book, they are all animals.                                                           Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe, Mama Jules, and a wide variety of mentors guide their friends to find meaning and inspiration,                                                   while living with diversities.   It touches and resonates to both special needs and typical community.

             Each individual person or family collaborating and sharing their story receives life-time royalties.
