Burlington, VT — If UVM freshman Brady Shaw seems familiar with the Brady, Brady book series that’s because it’s his story. The Brady, Brady children’s book series is written by Brady’s mom Mary Shaw.
“I thought, well you know what, there’s got to be a lot of little boys like him.” says Mary. “I’m going to write a hockey book so that Brady and other boys like him may be interested in reading a book. I mean, Brady didn’t want to read about fuzzy aardvarks and bunnies. He wanted to read about something he was passionate about.”
Why Brady, Brady?…
Brady’s been to a lot of places. See a few of his adventures below!
