Meet the rising star of Wayne, NJ, children’s book author, Jolie Della Valle!
#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino chatted with Jolie in none other than Long Shot Productions, LLC’s studio. Jolie is the proud author of an award winning children’s book, “Georgie and the Ants in the Pants.”
Writing an interactive children’s book is not what Jolie has always planned on doing. As an alumna of The Fashion Institute of Technology, she explains that her children’s clothing line actually led her to write the book.
“I have a children’s clothing line, and all of the outfits have ant prints on them and say “I have ants in my pants.” I want children to embrace the “ants in their pants,” which is their silliness and positive energy, so I wrote this book to drive that message home.”
Since the publication of the book, Jolie has been on tour in the Tri-state area visiting Preschools, Elementary Schools, and Libraries. She reads to the students, dances and sings with them, and performs interactive songs on her ukulele. Jolie recently visited schools in Mahwah, Wayne and Fairfield, NJ.
