Children's Book Donated to 5,000 First-Graders!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jan. 30, 2024 - PRLog -- Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., of Blountville, Tennessee, is honored to have been a part of January's Kingsport, TN Chamber of Commerce Meeting to celebrate getting Live Like Grunt, by JCP authors Miles and Nikki Burdine, into the hands of 5,000 first-graders!

Made possible by the Jim and Laura Rogers Foundation and Ballad Health led by Alan Levine, the donation reached 73 elementary schools across Northeast TN. Live Like Grunt was distributed by Kingsport Leadership Programs led by Vanessa Bennett. Nikki Burdine and her co-author and father, Miles Burdine, tagged along to several schools and helped spread their inspiring children's book to first-graders in the area.

JCP Publisher and CEO, Janie C. Jessee, was in attendance at the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting on Friday, January 26th, where Nikki Burdine was a guest speaker sharing on the importance of early literacy.

Burdine's debut children's book, Live Like Grunt premiered in November 2020 and follows the story of a yellow lab who gave the Burdine family unconditional love and loyalty for about a dozen years. Grunt was his name and love was his game. Miles and Denise Burdine brought Grunt home for their three girls, Nikki, Laura, and Alyce. His name came from Miles, who is a USMC Colonel, also known as a "Grunt." They do the hard work, the dirty work, the groundwork...the Grunt work. Grunt Dog also adorably 'grunted' quite a bit as a puppy. Grunt followed the girls wherever they went, did whatever they did, and was always happy to do so. The feeling was mutual. But the girls slowly learned, it was Grunt's attitude that was worth emulating.

Miles created a daily "Thoughts by Grunt Dog" email he sent out to his girls. The 'thoughts' were often accompanied by a picture of Grunt Dog and a quote. The book is a collection of Thoughts by Grunt Dog that make for great life lessons for any family.

JCP is honored to have been involved in this special event and is proud of authors Nikki and Miles and their wonderfully charming book.

Live Like Grunt is available in all formats on Amazon, Barnes&, and through Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc. Readers can also purchase signed copies directly through the author's website.
