Series Sunday: Rule the Music Scene Like Queen Beyoncé

(Work It, Girl #6) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Rule the Music Scene Like Queen Beyoncé Knowles, the sixth book in the Work It, Girl series by Caroline Moss and illustrated by Sinem Erkas. The series is an empowering series of biographies featuring modern women. This new installment is told in 10 chapters highlighting important moments in Beyoncé's life, her work ethic, activism and road to success. There are 10 key lessons at the end to self-reflect and help apply to a reader's own life.

"If her album "4" was about love and her surprise album was about feminism and self-love...then her 2016 release, "Lemonade," was about absolute empowerment." ~ pg. 52

Unlike Bey's many projects, it is no secret that I am a proud card-carrying-tour-savings-account-listen-on-demand member of the BeyHive. So I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this advance copy of the newest Work It, Girl book. Did I care that it was children's? Not one bit. In fact, I was more likely to read it as a potential summer bookclub choice for my niece. (Because like any Rich Auntie, we have dance parties to Queen Bey's music and know the choreography to a tee!)

I am so sharing this new children's book with my niece and recommending for all young Bookhearts. I plan to read a couple of the other books in the Work It, Girl series (featuring Mae Jemison, Michelle Obama, J.K. Rowling, Oprah and Ellen). I'm also adding the published print version to my personal library since it has bright illustrations of 3D cut paper artwork of inspiring quotes. So well done!

Happy Early Pub Day, Caroline Moss! Rule the Music Scene Like Queen Beyoncé will be available Tuesday, August 3.

Disclaimer: An advance copy was received directly from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Opinions are my own and would be the same if I spent my hard-earned coins.
