Pearl the Motorcycle Girl: Take a Chance and Dance

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New Children’s Book Promotes Pure Grrrrl “Power”

An animated motorcycle discovers self-expression and confidence in Rebecca Jamison’s insightful new children’s book Pearl the Motorcycle Girl: Take a Chance and Dance.


KELLER, TEXAS-In the tradition of Rebecca Jamison’s Clyde the Glyde series of children’s books that are enjoyed by adults and children alike, Pearl the Motorcycle Girl: Take a Chance and Dance, is a fanciful tale that encourages young females to explore and find value in their own unique identities while strengthening their ability to make healthy lifestyle choices.

When loveable little motorcycle, Pearl, discovers the beauty of movement in everything around her, she also finds her own personal style of self-expression - dance. The confidence she feels in this self-discovery helps her to connect with others who share her passion. Then, when called upon to conquer the open road with her owner and friend, Mini, Pearl is able to quickly traverse and fulfill her responsibilities as a strong, powerful motorcycle. Pearl’s ‘can do’ attitude is refreshing and sends a positive message to young girls as Mini and Pearl lovingly break the stereotype of female motorcyclists by allowing them to be girly girls, and at the same time strong, independent, powerful and confident individuals.

Inspired by the Clyde the Glyde series of children’s books, the story of Clyde’s female counterpart was begging to be told. Pearl the Motorcycle Girl, a poetic and warm-hearted book filled with bold, cheerful illustrations is sure to be a cherished addition to any home or school library.

Trade Reviews

"This is an adorable story of a Harley Electra Glide named Clyde who dreams of being taken for a ride by his rider named Pajim. Pajim is also having a dream of riding Clyde. When the two go for a ride, they enjoy all that motorcycling is about. The cute thing about this story is that it's based on someone's life, Jim Jamison, whose grandkids call him Pajim. Jim's wife, Rebecca wrote "Clyde the Glyde on the Great Ride" to share with their grandkids. It is beautifully illustrated, and the story rhymes. Plus, it's just long enough where your little listeners will say, "Please read it again!"

-- Women Riders Now (www.womenridersnow.com) – Product News and Reviews Book recommendations
"...Although Clyde is the hero of the story, PaJim is a delightful supporting character. Underneath that helmet and glasses is a person just like the reader’s own papa or uncle or grandpa. Sometimes small children are afraid when hearing the roar of the motorcycle, but the author defuses that fear by using the word “potato” to describe the sound of the engine vrooming. And, although the focus might be Clyde’s fear of the dark, the reader loves discovering the relationship between PaJim and Clyde..."
-- Writers Digest commentary
"The text's repetitive structures provide a good start... the story's chorus is the rumbling sound of Clyde's engine, "po-ta-to, po-ta-to, po-ta-to", which is a recurring growl each time Clyde zooms away across a double-page spread - a compelling feature. Cute, colorful illustrations add charm."
