Jason Crabb Continues To Inspire and Teach Children with Jase® Book Series

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 18, 2017 – 7:31 pm -

Jason Crabb Continues To Inspire and Teach Children with Jase® Book Series

Jason Crabb Continues To Inspire and Teach Children with Jase® Book Series

Nashville, TN – Grammy winner Jason Crabb continues to inspire and teach young children through the incredibly popular Jase® children’s book series. With the release of the latest book, The 6th “Be Attitude,” the journey continues through the ten commandments told through the adventures of “Jase® the Crabb,” an adorable friend to all children.

In this dreamland adventure, Jase® meets Ranjeet, a boy from the Far East who feels out of place in an English-speaking nation. From Jase®, he learns that God loves our uniqueness and when he and Jase® hear the Sermon on the Mount, Ranjeet learns the power of having a pure heart.

The Jase® Series has become extremely popular with Jason Crabb’s youngest fans. “Every night, children and their parents and grandparents tell me just how much Jase® means to them,” Crabb comments. “Children enjoy the stories and feel connected to Jase® and his friends through the adventures he takes. I am so excited to release book six!”

The name of the character, Jase®, holds a special meaning to Crabb. Derived from the initials of his immediate family – J(ason) A(shleigh) S(hellye) E(mma) – the name is also what his late Grandfather would call him. “I would visit my grandfather in the summer months and help him around the farm. I can’t even remember how many times I heard him call out to me – “JASE, come on over here and help me out!” – it just seemed like a natural fit and a way to honor my grandfather.”

In addition to the ten-book series, children, parents and teachers can log on to www.JaseCrabb.com where they can print off curriculum, coloring pages, certificates of completion, learn about Jase® University and comment on the books. Along with Crabb, a team comprising of Donna Scuderi and Philip & Tina Morris played an integral role in contributing to the overall foundation and direction of the book series.

Award-winning illustrator Anita DuFalla’s vibrant visuals display the heart and soul of Jase® the Crabb and his friends. Anita’s clients include McGraw-Hill, Harcourt (Brace), Benchmark Education Company, and the Washington Post among others. “When I saw Anita’s work and witnessed her heart for this, I knew God had brought the right person to this project,” shares Crabb. “Her creativity and talent have brought my little buddy, Jase®, to life!”

The entire Jase® Series is available at JaseCrabb.com and at your local Christian bookstore through New Day Christian Distributors.

Gerald and Jason Crabb

Tweet of the Day

Go see Jason at one of the upcoming dates listed above. You will not be sorry!  Look For the Big Red Bus!

Have you heard his new song “Home?”

Taken from Jason’s Bio talking about the song….

Another poignant moment on the album is the tender ballad, “Home,” which was written by Jason’s father Gerald Crabb, a Dove Award-winning songwriter. “I had already recorded it and then grandma passed,” he says of losing his maternal grandmother, Billie Richardson, in early 2015. “When I recorded it, I didn’t know that that was going to be my song for her at that moment, but you know? I’m thankful. When I sing it, I just close my eyes and think of her in her little blue house, fixin’ everybody something to eat, but I’m not going to see her ever again like that, and that’s a big chapter closed.”

Here’s the song:
