What an amazing Children's book with so much history about Music and Mr. Joe Lear. If you want to help Children learn about the importance of Music and instruments this is the book for you. Can't wait to read it to the Daycare kids. I can't wait for the Author's next book.

I am married to my own music man - it was so fun to read this book, the love of music just jumped off the pages. It would be a great way to show children that they don't have to just play one instrument and that they can continue to play even when they grow up!!

If you have a child who loves music this is a really fun read.

Melissa Stiller

Great glimpse into the life of a local music man and his instruments.

Local author publishes first children’s book

Jennifer Antonik believes that reading is extremely important to children and, since she loved telling stories of her own, it was only natural that she would write a children’s book.

She found that her writing talent, her love of reading and her ability to tell a story combined nicely in writing books aimed toward children.

“There’s something special about watching a child’s eyes light up when you lead them on a new adventure or tell them something they didn’t know,” Antonik said. “It’s that joy of life that inspired me to start writing children’s books, especially with my Granddaddy’s story in mind.”

Antonik’s first book, “The Music Man:  Our Rootin’, Tootin’ Hero,” was recently published and released on Christmas Day.
