Tailored for inquisitive young readers, the books chronicle the escapades of seven-year-old Jalen as he navigates city life alongside his two closest companions.
As these tales unfold, each is brought to life by Shiane's vivid artwork, serving as a visual guide through Jalen's journeys.
Reflecting on her contribution, Shiane adds, "These new additions to the book series Jalen's Big City Life were a joy to work on. I have favorite moments in every book. The best parts about these books are that they touch on ways kids Jalen's age can actually make a difference even though they are young -- like help their grandfather with their baby sister or clean a park. Anyone can make a difference in someone's day to day no matter how small."
