Spring is in the air and the annual piano recital is only a week away! How will our young pianist learn her music in time? This delightful tale introduces Ana and her special friend Henry the Steinway—a grandfatherly piano who speaks to her! Ana learns from Henry that she must first hear the music. Then, she must find the music in her heart. Soon, Ana’s tears of frustration turn to pure joy, as she delights in the playing of her music and her new friendship with Henry the Steinway. This story will resonate with piano students and piano lovers of all ages! A wonderful book that teaches kids about practice, concentration, and fortitude.
A charming account of an ageless story, the bond of friendship between pianists of all ages and their pianos.
—Dr. Robert Blocker, Dean, Yale School of Music
