  3. Cute story about a young girl s love of music She develops a relationship with an older woman in a nearby neighborhood and works out a deal to work in exchange for piano lessons I love the way the book illustrated the girl s love of music and its ability to transform her from her life to a new experience However, I think adding the comments about white people s money, without hinting at the historical landscape that would lead to those comments was a little off putting In my opinion, it just fel [...]

  5. This book takes place during segregation in the 60 s, and it deals with a little girl who takes a job as a maid at a wealthy white ladies home The twist is the only reason she took the job was because the lady had a piano and she fell in love with the way it sounded and wanted to know She did her job, and in her spare time after getting to know her they became good friends and she started to give her lessons There was another little boy who worked at the house as well and when the little girl f [...]


  6. Young African American girl in the Deep South during the 1900s who loves music and wanders into the white part of town and becomes enraptured by the music she hears coming from one of the homes, she hires on as a maid to be closer to the music and becomes a piano pupil of the woman who owns the home While somewhat implausible that she could travel so often and freely in that part of town, the story is about reaching across the division of race through a shared love of music and its power to spi [...]

  9. Taken from review Set in the deep South of the early 1900s, this is the story of an African American girl who learns to play the piano from her white employer In return, she shows the elderly woman the power of friendship and caring Luminous oil paintings skillfully evoke the mood and the time Grades 1 5



  10. I thought this was a touching children s story that reminded me, vaguely, of Christ washing the disciples feet My daughter, on the other hand, shouted at the second to last page, This is BORING.
