Summary: (from my library catalog) Illustrations and easy-to-read text celebrate the joys of being the middle child in a loving family of rabbits.

I like this book because: it’s stunning, like old album covers, and it’s an enthralling intro to classical music. Recently friends been surprised to find out that I play classical music in my car. Really loud too! I realize not as many grew up in a household in which that is pretty much all we were allowed to listen to (when Dad was home!), but I was surprised that I am the “only friend that listens to it in the car”! So I though I would share this book in hopes that others might also get the bug! Classical rocks!

Resources/activities: listen to all the masters introduced in the book, after reading each chapter. That’s it! I don’t want to push it, I want others to love classical too!
