About the Author
Inspired by her concerns for the smallest among us - as well as by her own significant grief over not being able to hug her grandchildren during quarantine - Sherri began to write this book to help preschoolers understand what's going on and why all of us have to follow new rules. As a mother of three daughters and three stepdaughters, as well as a grandmother to many more, she hopes that the resources found in this book will be useful to parents and caregivers all over the world.
Megan Brawand is a fifteen-year-old sophomore at Thomas Dale High School in Chester, Virginia. Megan loves to draw, paint, and create digital artwork as a way of combining her thoughts and feelings. Her artwork has been included at several local art exhibits. In 2018, at age thirteen, she created a painting that was chosen for display at Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, Virginia.
Megan's other interests include theatre production, sci-fi themes, and vintage automobiles. She plans to attend college to pursue a career in concept art so she may create illustrations that convey a writer's ideas prior to production. Megan is humbled and honored to collaborate with this author on such a wonderful book!
Sherri wrote the lyrics for "The Teensy Weensy Virus" with a little help from the Gregory Brothers, a Brooklyn-based quartet specializing in comedy music. Evan David Gregory arranged the musical score, which can be purchased at https://www.sherrirosebooks.com. The arrangement makes for a great song for string players and new pianists.
In addition to their work on "The Teensy Weensy Virus," the Gregory Brothers are the creators of the video series "Auto-Tune the News" and "Songify This." You can watch their videos, which have been viewed over one billion times, at www.youtube.com/songify.
