Haley Rose is my guest today has always been in entertainment, with her band “Crush Violet", as an entertainment business manager and now as a successful author of children’s books, her latest being “Fifo 50 States”
Hayley Rose grew up in the beach side town of Pacific Palisades , California, to a family of visual artists. In the early 1990’s she traveled the U.S. with her band Crush Violet. In 1994, after a family reunion, she was inspired to write a children’s book. Looking for a cute and catchy name for a main character, she kept hearing “first in, first out”. Hence, the name Fifo was born.
Hayley’s mother would often ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, so Hayley decided to start her series of “Fifo” books with that very question… Fifo “When I Grow Up,”
Her second book in what I’m sure will become an extremely popular series is inspired by her own love of travel as “Fifo” the bear dreams of visiting all 50 states, in Fifo "50 States".
Intended for children between 2 and 10, it is written in delightful rhyming format that I’m sure will appeal and perhaps educate those who read books to their children...
About Fifo “50 States”:
Fifo “50 States” is the second book in the Fifo series. In this delightful rhyming story, both educational and fun, Fifo dreams about visiting all 50 states. A colorful reference-like book, Fifo, discovers the wonders each state has to offer. Along the way he learns about each state’s capital, shape, flag, motto, and much, much more. The possibilities are endless!
A third book about Fifo visitng England, the first stop in a possible world tour, plus two possible board games and a TV show, Fifo looks like he is a bear that is here to stay. Hayley’s singing background has also not been forgotten and she hopes one day soon hope to one day soon release an album of children’s songs.
