Jasmine Jackson’s New picture book will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the availability of The First Dam Ever Built, a picture book for children by author Jasmine Jackson. Published January 26, 2011, this book tells a beautiful tale of friendship, unity, and strength.

This book takes readers into a forest where animals live, love, and help their neighbors unconditionally. In this peaceful forest, there is a family of beavers who lives among raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, badgers, platypuses, and other animals that were not a threat to their existence. However, in a simple act of defiance, they became aware of a danger that threatens their very existence. Readers will learn what crises will arise and what events will unfold as they browse through the pages.

The First Dam Ever Built began as a class assignment during the author’s creative writing course. After watching The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the beavers resonated with her. This story came as a result and is Jackson’s version of mythology.

This book will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
