Mo Willems, a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, composes a powerful symphony of chance, discovery, persistence, and magic in this moving tale of a young girl's journey to center stage. Illustrator Amber Ren brings Willems' Music to life, conducting a stunning picture book debut. 

My Thoughts:
This incredibly touching picture book celebrates music and how it changes lives.

Because is a chain of events that lead to a little girl hearing a classical music performance for the first time. Her life was changed because of it; because someone made beautiful music, and someone else learned to play it on an instrument, and someone else invited many musicians to play it together, and so on and so forth. 

I loved the illustrations with all the details and diverse characters.
We especially loved the pages where the orchestra starts playing and you can see and hear the music through illustration. So moving! 

The hardcover picture book includes the music sheets for "Symphony no. 8 in B-minor" by Franz Schubert and 'The Cold' by Hilary Purrington on the end pages for the musically inclined!
