About the Author
Jeremy is an active member of the "Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators" (www.scbwi.org) and a life-long musician, currently playing the drums in two music groups along with composing and producing music in his home studio, located in the charming downtown Westchester neighborhood of Bakersfield, California. He is also the proud father of four musical children, and husband to a lovely piano teacher and singer. He manages his own company with multiple distinct aspects, consisting of IT services and support; music recording, production, and performance; book authorship; and more. The concept for Darci the Drummer formed as a result of his own musical adventures starting from a young age, along with the experience of music lessons that his own children are blessed to receive. He was also very inspired by the delight that has been exhibited by many who have sat down at his drum sets for fun, and the perseverance that he encourages in his children when facing doubt, struggle, and criticism. Lastly, he will never neglect to mention the number of toys, boxes and bins, and kitchen utensils that have been transformed into wonderfully noisy band instruments around the house.

Darci is always drumming on things. Rather than telling her to be quiet, her parents encourage her and tell her they think she has real talent. They surprise her with drum lessons! She's excited but once she finds out how much work it's going to be to be a good drummer, she momentarily has doubts. Once she has the tools she needs though, she's ready to get busy learning all she can.
Darci the Drummer has colorful illustrations on every page by Gabbi Steiger that should help keep the interest of younger children. It also has a good story that encourages children to pursue their passion, something I've always thought was important. I like how other learning opportunities are included such as showing the names of some of items in the drum set and explaining what a metronome does. My favorite extra learning "extra" was that when a color is mentioned, that word is that color, for example gold.
I definitely think this is a great book for children 4 to 9 to enjoy and learn at the same time.
The next day, we had to read it five times. And three times the day after. All told, I had to read them Darcy The Drummer about twenty times in the first few days after we got it. My girls love the story. They love the excitement for making music, the annoying brother, and the excitement at learning how to do something new.
It's a great story that will give you a lot of ways to talk about music with your kids, too.
Even my almost 11yr old sister really enjoyed it as well.
