Book/Song Highlights the Happiness Created by Mutual Loving Support and Cooperation Among Relatives

COVID 19 has stopped most of our in-person 2020 plans in their tracks; making this another season of ZOOM calls, blown kisses and screen hugs. So, Teacher, Musician and Author Tara Drouin is helping to remind us of the simple joy of bringing family together with her new book and accompanying song, entitled “Red Rock Rd”.


Red Rock Road is a read and sing-along picture book for beginner readers which is a great medium of learning through rhyme and repetition. The book inspired by writer Tara Drouin’s parents’ home is a beautiful log cabin tucked away in the Catskill Mountains, in New York. The catchy tune and bright Illustrations create a fun and engaging method to teach children about the importance of family and togetherness, life in the mountains, and being one with nature. The book transports one to a magical place where giant mountains teeming with dense trees are filled with brightly colored birds and animals, who take comfort in and around her parent’s magical log cabin which is brimming with life and energy when the family comes together.

Tara Drouin is a singer/songwriter, teacher, mom, and children’s book author of One Heart. She is excited to be releasing her second children’s book Red Rock Road. It is named after a song by the same name, which she released with her children’s band The Gum Drops.

The illustrations are created by Soumya Basnet, a talented UK based illustrator and designer, who has captured the beauty of the mountains perfectly. Her characters are adorable and are based on Tara’s family. Together, they take the reader on a magical journey of what life is like on Red Rock Road.  

With the purchase of the book comes a free download of the song the book was inspired by!
