The Dance of the Violin

Reviewed by:

Based on the world renowned violinist, Joshua Bell, this is a lovely story of a child who is learning the violin. As he practices, he creates stories and hears the music in a way that only he can. Then he signs up for a competition and things don’t go so well.  A great story of perseverance. At the back is information about the real Joshua Bell. Illustrations match the story beautifully!
