Frederic is trying to find his niche in his very talented and musical family. They pre-determined his fate to be a legendary pianist, but the talent was just not there. However, Frederic finds his own talent in his musical world that is unexpected as a music conductor. I would use this book in my classroom because it introduces the art of music in a fun way, while also showing kids to explore their options for prospective hobbies/talents. ( )

A story about a boy who can't seem to fit into his musical family. One day he sees an orchestra that his sister is playing in and falls in love with the conductor's job. After that, he managed to get his family to work together to create a beautiful song. I would use this book in a music class because it shows the different types of instruments. ( )
