“We need more of this and we need to buy Shelly Bean the Sports Queen books and have them in our book stores, in our libraries…we need these everywhere!”
Deputy Director, Welcoming Schools, Human Rights Campaign Foundation
“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!”
”We normally have a difficult time getting our active 2 y/o to sit still through an entire book. We bought 5 Shelly Bean books now and Madison actually asks to read! It's so cool!”

“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!”
