Next Letter for Kids: Mike Grosso


We’re sending our next Letter for Kids from children’s author, teacher, and musician Mike Grosso! Mike writes to us about growing up in a musical family and how his thoughts would spin so fast that he had a hard time sitting still and learning in school.

Mike Grosso is a musician and a fourth-grade teacher who always keeps a guitar in his classroom. His father gave him his first lesson, and his mom taught him how to keep a steady rhythm. Mike continues to write and record music at his home in Oak Park, Illinois, where he lives with his wife, son, and a drum set he plays much too loud. I Am Drums is his first novel.
