Fun children’s book by former NFL player, Jashon Sykes


Former NFL Player, Jashon Sykes, takes his talent to children’s book literacy.

“Multitask with Jarvis & Dad” is the first book of the Jarvis & Dad series. Jarvis, our main character, is a panda bear who is a fun, energetic, active, creative, and observant. Jarvis is full of imagination and curiosity. Jarvis loves to use his two’s more than his one’s. (He listens with his ears, see’s with his eyes, but does not talk a lot). Jarvis loves to play sports and loves to learn valuable lesson from his dad. Jarvis also has a pet caterpillar that keeps him company throughout the story.

Follow Jashon & Jarvis through their book series as they teach kids valuable life lessons, be inspired to love their families,  understand moral values, and develop an eagerness to learn — all while spending precious, valuable moments reading with their loved ones.

A great story for families and children ages 7-12. Available now on
