Meet children’s author Lisa Caprelli, a Latina mom on a mission to inspire kids to learn.  Lisa was inspired by Sesame Street’s combination of music, puppetry and talent to teach.

During the pandemic, she found the silver lining for children to express themselves creatively while sharing HAPPINESS.  Utilizing technology platforms like YouTube, Facebook Live and Amazon TV, “Unicorn Jazz Presents The Thing I Do” was born. It has been described as a modern, educational and fun show for kids –with puppets, stories and with real kids — who could send in their short videos and merge them into a TV show series.

2020 tested many of us and it was during that time Lisa did not stop her nationwide school tour of presenting and encouraging the arts, reading, writing, music, and storytelling … Instead of feeling defeated, she took the opportunity to impact more families in the quickest, most efficient way possible —  by producing and directing an online kids’ show!

To date, Unicorn Jazz, a multi-media brand has reached over 500,000 children through school tours, social media influencers, bloggers and podcast outreach!

Lisa uses her characters from the Unicorn Jazz series, offering social emotional learning in its books – turned some into puppets, Unicorn Jazz and Trezekke (pronounced tray-zee-kee) a zebracorn —  along with a puppet led game show — “Happiness News” — ocean animals —  original music soundtracks — like:

  • The Friendship Song
  • Rainbow song
  • Make that smile a little bit bigger
  • Baby, I love you …
  • and more!

Created with numerous talented kids, actors and singers, the show has talent ~ like 13 year old, Broadway star, Emily Isabel. Rhett Drennen shares his joy of reading — along with fun facts to make learning fun and imaginative!
