Vicky Weber is a former elementary school music teacher and current bestselling author. 

During COVID, when her students couldn’t learn to play the recorder in the classroom, Vicky published an interactive musical book, Lazlo Learns Recorder, to help kids virtually learn the recorder. Music teachers all over the country used this book to supplement their teaching. It was then that Vicky caught the writing bug.

After 6 years in the classroom, Vicky became a full-time author. She also serves as a coach to aspiring authors. To date, she has released 10 picture books that draw upon her teaching experience and Puerto Rican heritage . Her interactive musical books teach kids everything from music vocabulary and how to play the recorder. Vicky has become so successful in such a short time, Disney and Random House recently tapped into her to write the Encanto Step Into Reading book.
