Rosheena Beek Launches New Children’s Book

March 21, 2011

Premier Paula Cox, Minister of Education Dame Jennifer Smith, and Minister of Public Information Neletha Butterfield were among the attendees of Rosheena Beek’s book launch for her first children’s book, “I Find It So Hard!” which features illustrations created by 17-year-old phenom Leon Forde.

The book launch and book signing was this past Saturday [Mar.19] at the Bookmart on Reid Street. Also in attendance was PS Michelle Khaldun, Ms Beek’s High School English Teacher Dr. Glen Bascome and many relatives and friends.

When asked how the launch went, Ms Beek said, “The sales were actually four times the amount that was expected to sell for the day! It went really well. However, there’s plenty more and I encourage everyone to come by the Bookmart to pick up their copies. I left a limited amount there, with my signature in them. But there are plenty more without my signature.”

“All I can say is that it is my deepest intention, through this book, to help our mothers understand the importance of our roles in our children’s lives. And how the power of consistent, empowering, loving communications can make our relationship with our children stronger. Further showing us, how that strength can emanate from our children into our community, making it a better one!”

    Congratulations Rosheena. Job well done. I read the book this morning from your Mom. It should be a great thing for our youth especially in these trying times. Keep up the good work.

    • Thank you so much Warrior Queen. That is my intention with this book. We as a community have to remember how important our communication is with our children and how consistent, positive reinforcement, through our words, can bring about such positive results. We have the power!

    Congratulations Rosheena, I was glad to be able to attend your book signing and purchase a book for my step-daughter Jada, who read it instantly in the car and commented that it was real “KEWL” aka cool!!!

    I was excited to share that the book’s drawings were created by a Bermudian teenager: Well done Leon, your illustrations are amazing and indeed captured the spirit of this Story.

    Rosheena you continue to exhibit a world-wind of diverse talent, and we wish you much success in all your endeavors.

    All the best,

    • Queen B, I thank you for your encouraging sentiments. I’m glad that my book is considered “KEWLL” LOL!!!

      Leon’s illustrations definitely captured the spirit of this book. I have no doubt that he has a very bright future ahead of him.

      Thank you once again for your love…Peace
