Jimmie Allen has created a new children’s book, My Voice Is A Trumpet with Flamingo Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers, to encourage young readers to speak up for what you believe in and use your voice. The new book is illustrated by veteran illustrator Cathy Ann Johnson and is set for release July 13, 2021. In the book all voices are as diverse as the characters and heard loud and clear. From voices that roar like a lion, to voices small as a bee, all it takes is confidence and a belief in the goodness of others to change the world.

“It’s very important to me that kids learn at a young age that they have a voice, and that it is powerful. It is up to us as adults to teach them to use their voice to encourage and show love,” said Allen. “Being a father of two kids, I try to encourage them to be themselves and love everyone around them. I’m hoping this book inspires at least one child and they always remember their voice is a trumpet.”


Bobby Bones’ Puppy Stanley Is Star Of New Children’s Book
