Spartanburg, SC, April 21, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Donnie Cranfill, author and founder of Camp Nana Papa™, an online retail store and social media hub for doting grandparents, is excited to announce his first children’s book, “The Adventures of Camp Nana Papa” is now available at Barnes & Noble stores across the country and online at BarnesAndNoble.com and Amazon.com.
“The Adventures of Camp Nana Papa” is the first in a series of children’s picture books celebrating the special bond between grandchildren and their grandparents. It tells the story of two children, Nick and Sarah, and their friend Flash the Firefly™ enjoying a fun-filled weekend at their grandparents’ home - lovingly called Camp Nana Papa.
“'The Adventures of Camp Nana Papa' is more than just a story,” said Melissa Berry, community business development manager for Barnes & Noble. “Camp Nana Papa is a special place for grandparents to build and share memories. The delightful illustrations and the lovable characters will charm readers of all ages.”
The hardback book brings Nick's, Sarah's, and Flash's adventures to life, as they swim, run and play, go to the zoo, roast marshmallows and more. It also includes six keepsake pages to personalize and preserve special memories for each grandchild. The book retails for $17.99 and the second book in the series is expected later this year.
“This book and forthcoming series is inspired by my childhood relationship with my own grandmother,” said Cranfill. “My memories with her fuel the story line for characters Nick, Sarah and Flash. She would be so proud to see this book on the shelves of the country’s largest book retailer and online with the country’s largest e-retailer. It’s a dream come true!”
The book has been well received already by grandchildren and their grandparents. A sampling of reviews from bloggers include:
“I thought the book was for my kids, but it became an engaging story for my kids and a heartwarming experience for my parents … which made me so happy that it became a gift for me.” - Audrey Matalon www.primetimeparenting.com
“… beautifully illustrated with such a heartfelt message…that the magic you feel when you are at Camp Nana Papa stays with you always, even when you’re not with your grandparents… For my kids who now live far from their Mimi, Papa, Mi-Mom and Pop-Pop, it’s such an important lesson.” - Lindsay Podolak www.thenaughtymommy.com
