Miss Little Bea Sharp

By Jessica Rosen illustrated by David R. Martinez

9780999676004, $15.00, www.amazon.com

I am very grateful that when I was in elementary school I was taught the appreciation of music by teachers as well as trips to the local symphony to hear different types of music first hand.  Sadly, that is not the case today, for many students.  Jessica Rosen in her book “Miss Little Bea Sharp” cleverly takes children on a journey though the different types previewing, many different forms to experience. Rosen also has a wonderful gift with her words that project to the reader to actually hear the sounds of jazz, rock n roll, classical, and others.  “Miss Little Bea Sharp” is a beautiful merging of art structures that should be used at schools to instill an awareness of music by kids today

What?!” is well written with passion and political controversy. 5-star review #autobiography #NFL #BaltimoreRavens

Normally readers can find the AJ & Magnus comic strip on many different social media outlets. “AJ & Magnus Everyday Adventure” is the third collection of three volumes that can appear to a larger audience. With the world filled with so much negativity, it is wonderful to have characters who have readers laughing out loud at their antics. Some may find some of the material offensive, but that is really their problem as there are too many things today to find fault with.  Instead, people should sit down and cruise through the fun filled stories. “AJ & Magnus Everyday adventure” is a beautifully done job of storytelling and illustration that should find new readers.
