June, 2011–Jonathan Cate has published a book entitled The Adventures of JimBob Jackfoot Episode I: JimBob Visits the Eye Doctor. This is the first book in an upcoming series about an amiable character named JimBob Jackfoot and his friends. The first story is about JimBob’s first visit to the eye doctor. This was chosen as the subject matter for the first story as the author, Jonathan Cate, runs an eyeglass company Jonathan Cate Inc. The following books in the upcoming series will focus on JimBob and his friends’ experiences throughout the school years.
In this entertaining book, The Adventures of JimBob Jackfoot Episode I: JimBob Visits the Eye Doctor, you are engaged by the vibrant illustrations, humorous storyline, and the charismatic personalities of the book’s characters. The book/story does serve to inform, but it truly shines by focusing on the emotional voyage a child has during his/her first eye doctor’s visit. The book has already received tremendous feedback within the optical community by doctors, optometrist, and patients.
The new children’s eyeglass and sunglass collection is branded Katykids to coincide with the book mentioned above. The collection will utilize JimBob Jackfoot branding as well as other main characters from the story. The collection will consist of both plastic and metal eyeglasses and sunglasses for both boys and girls. There will also be some action figurines, keychains, tee-shirts, and possibly children’s watches that will also be branded with JimBob Jackfoot related characters. This will allow opticians to not only have a full kid’s collection but to offer supplemental merchandise that could be used as promotional items.
