This might be a new one by me. It’s a kid’s book. And yes, it seems to be Rock Fiction.

Have a look at what I mean:

What happens when a young girl with a Hall of Fame baseball pedigree breaks the family mold and follows her dream to become a soul singer? Roxy Rogers: Your Destiny Is Calling, a picture book recommended for ages 6 – 9, lets children see their families will love them just the same when they pursue their true passions in life.

Everybody in Roxy’s family–from her great-grandpa (played with Lou Gehrig), to her grandpa (played with Jackie Robinson), to her mother (super-star college softball player), to her father (was a Los Angeles Dodger), to her sister (won a Gold Medal for Team USA Softball, and so on)–famously played ball, and Roxy is next in line. The only problem is that Roxy dreams of singing soul music like her idol, Aretha Franklin! A historical addendum provides information about the Hall of Fame baseball players who turn up in the book, as well as Aretha Franklin, the queen of soul music. Additionally, a fun treasure hunt for clues about Roxy’s true destiny runs throughout the book, giving readers an enhanced, interactive experience.

Yep. Start the kids early on their Rock and Roll dream. I can’t remember how old I was when I fell in love with music, but it was pretty young. A book like this would’ve probably changed my life, even though I really like where I am now. Maybe I’m living the dream, even though I don’t work in rock and roll. But I do work in music, and it’s all good.
