About Katani’s Jamaican Holiday
The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and B*tween Productions worked together to create and promote the latest Beacon Street Girls special adventure book, “Katani’s Jamaican Holiday.” Scheduled for release June 3, 2008, the fictional story teaches tween girls to nurture their own family roots while they learn about Jamaica, its rich history, culture and lifestyle.
In December 2007, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, one of the leading children’s book publishers in the world, added the Beacon Street Girls series to its tween imprint, Aladdin M!X. “Katani’s Jamaican Holiday” is the first Beacon Street Girls book to be released under this partnership, which is expected to dramatically expand the brand’s reach globally.
