This lovely picture book shows both the life-changing power of music and the way chance encounters can influence a person's path in life. It also shows all the people involved in putting on a show, from the different musicians who make up the orchestra to the workers who hang the lights to the artist who designs the poster to advertise the show to the train conductor who lets people off at the concert hall. It underscores how inspiration, hard work, and luck all contribute to what someone ultimately does for a living. And in the simplest terms, it shows how one thing leads to another.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
