Danielle experimented with writing children's books for years, always knowing she would succeed in completing a book one day. Danielle's dream has finally become a reality. Her goal is to put a smile on children's faces and a song in their heart. She hopes to ignite the love of music and reading in the lives of children by providing them with a light -hearted , music - inspired book.
"Books and music help us connect with each other. Whether it be through lyrics or chapters, we learn how to empathize." -Danielle LaRosa
