LOS ANGELES--(JMF Books)—Sept. 11, 2017-- Written by Jen Oloo, Farhang Hodjat, and Mike Rodriguez, “Yahooty Who?” is the NEWEST and COOLEST participa-STORY box set in youth fiction and just funded on Kickstarter in less than 39 minutes!

par·tic·i·pa·sto·ry (pärˈtisəpəˌstôrē)

noun -a story characterized by participation between parents and children.

The “Yahooty Who?” participa-STORY is designed to be an interactive experience between parents and children. Each box set includes an irresistible Yahooty plush doll and a SURPRISE sock puppet "blind bag". Parents can leave blind bags for children as a special gift from Yahooty and then use the puppets to read the story over and over again. Kids love the sock puppet fun and the participatory responses encouraged by the “Yahooty Who?” books.

Jen Oloo tells us the story behind “Yahooty Who?”: “Yahooty was a helper that my Grandpa Walt introduced to play games with us. Mostly I remember that Yahooty would turn on the lights in the fridge or in the trunk of his 1980’s Cadillac when we opened the door. My brothers, cousins, and I would race to try and see Yahooty, but we never did. Even though my Grandpa Walt is gone, we remember him through this story and tell it to our children too!”

As citizens of the world, we work to be the best people we can be and to inspire others through thoughtfulness, positivity, and humor. As parents and influencers of children, we strive to lead by example and tell stories that help develop young minds into young adults who value the environment, togetherness, inclusion, self respect, and positive change. As creators, we believe in the power of education for children through characters, parental interaction, and the use of story.

Just like children everywhere, Yahooty has a mischievous cuteness that everyone falls in love with. From the way he “borrows” one of your socks, to the creative sock puppets he leaves behind for children, Yahooty finds his way into the hearts of all who read his story.
