“I work with elementary educators across the country and what is sorely needed are books that show kids a mirror to see themselves reflected. Shelly Bean the Sports Queen does just that. The diversity of the characters and a strong athletic female lead, coupled with excellent story telling makes this series really one of a kind.”

“Shelly Bean books have been a huge bedtime story blockbuster hit with my three sons and daughter.  As a former athlete and current orthopaedic surgeon, I am a firm believer that challenges in sports leads to drive and success later in life!”

Our future generations are counting on Shelly Bean the Sports Queen to lead the way for our next generation of leaders. I grew up reading children's books, but not any who looked like me. A strong, powerful, tough and driven young girl, I would have loved Shelly Bean in my life. She creates a diverse character, as more adults pick up the books aimed at young readers.”

“Shelly Bean the Sports Queen is an important addition to the children's literature.

Boys and girls need to see active, confident, sporty female role models as central characters, and Shelly Bean provides just that!

I am a BIG fan of Shelly Bean! This is a must have series for any family and would have loved this as a young girl! Go Shelly Bean!”
