Children’s Book About Bruce Springsteen to Be Published

Bruce Springsteen’s inspiring life and career are at the center of a new children’s book. A Little Golden Book Biography series is set to publish its next book with Springsteen as the focus, written by Laurel Snyder and illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler. “After years of practice and hard work, Bruce Springsteen made it big and continues to bring music to listeners of all ages,” a press release described. “A proud New Jerseyan, Bruce Springsteen is beloved by fans young and old.”

The book traces the iconic singer’s roots in New Jersey and his love for Elvis Presley as a child to hitting it big with his E Street Band. “When he wasn’t performing, Bruce wrote songs about people and places he knew. He wrote about his family and his town, about the hard work people did, and also about the things they dreamed of doing,” Snyder writes in the book. “Bruce wrote about faraway places he’d never been to, and the highways he hoped would take him there.”
