Daniel, Age 8 months

    Daniel Gallardo’s love of storytelling was truly inspired when his wonderful mother introduced him and his brothers to The Golden Treasury of Children’s Literature. Story-time quickly became his favorite hour. He also held a strong passion for music. Dan’s first music instructor realized he was fixating more on the lyrical content, rather than scales and arpeggios.


    He recommended instruction in lyrical arrangement.


    Both childhood experiences contributed to his future authoring and composing. Daniel’s children loved bedtime stories as much as their father. In fact, they often encouraged “dad” to improvise, rather than read from published books or sing well-known nursery rhymes.

    He now hopes other kids will enjoy his stories and music. His writing is themed around children’s health and wellness, especially juvenile diabetes. His debut book, Little Bea and The Good Health Ship, reached number nine in Children’s Health and Disease after only ten days of publication on


    The book is available through Barnes and Noble and many global online retailers. The companion album, “The Good Health Ship” performed by Captain Insulin and Friends, is available to stream on major platforms such as Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube and more.

Early education is prevention.
