A couple years ago I shared with you my review of a new book series written by a local author called “Shelly Bean the Sports Queen.”
Shelly Boyum-Breen is a native of Brainerd, Minnesota who grew up with aspirations of playing professional sports. She spent countless hours playing basketball, hockey and golf, then pursued a career as a physical education teacher and coach.
Then she did something near and dear to my heart – she raised $22,000 on Kickstarter to start a new children’s book series about a tough and lovable little girl who loves to play sports! (I say near and dear because I successfully raised money on Kickstarter to produce my own music CD a few years ago, and I support others’ creative projects, especially local!)
So then I reviewed Shelly Bean the Sports Queen Plays a Game of Catch. My kids still love the book and it’s been so positive and empowering for them!
Currently there are 4 books in the Shelly Bean series:
- Shelly Bean the Sports Queen Plays a Game of Catch
- Shelly Bean the Sports Queen Skates at the Hockey Rink
- Shelly Bean the Sports Queen Scores a Soccer Goal
- Shelly Bean the Sports Queen Plays Basketball
Each are $12.95 through the Shelly Bean website.
