Press Release

Jun 2, 2022

Recent release “Our Grandpa Owns a Lake!” from Covenant Books author Jan Barrus is a heartwarming and educational tale that teaches families the ways of various animals, fish and birds that reside around a pond. Through the adventures of the grandkids and their wise grandpa, children will learn and feel inspired to explore their own backyards.

Jan Barrus, a proud grandma and keeper of her own trout pond, has completed her new book, “Our Grandpa Owns a Lake!”:  an exciting and educational tale for families to enjoy.

Barrus shares, “To Kate and Dan, Grandpa’s pond looks big enough to be a lake—so the fun at the pond is also big and amazing! While following Grandpa’s safety rules, Dan, Kate, and their cousins enjoy taking turns paddle boating and kayaking on the pond and riding four-wheelers near the pond. They learn about fly-fishing and homemade flies. They also engage in the wise conservation practice of catching and releasing the fish they are not going to eat. The picnic at the end of the day is full of delicious fish and tasty dishes prepared by their grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles. With Grandma’s help, the children even roast their own s’mores for dessert. 

Throughout the day, Kate and Dan are curious about the constantly changing outdoors. They ask their grandfather many questions, and his answers are thoughtful and informative, helping the children learn the value of being good stewards of our natural environment and respecting all life.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Jan Barrus’s new book will teach children the wonders and customs of the various wildlife surrounding the pond and inspire them to venture into their own backyards to create stories of their own.

Readers can purchase “Our Grandpa Owns a Lake!” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
