9781406368406: Playing from the Heart

Peter H. Reynolds composes a pitch-perfect tribute to the power of music and the everlasting bond between father and son.An inspiring, moving story for budding musicians everywhere, the acclaimed creator of The Dot, Sky Colour and Ish tells the story of a father and son, who connect through the powerful language of music. When a young boy begins to play on his family's piano, revelling in the fun of plunking the keys, his father signs him up for lessons so that he can learn to play properly. With his father's encouragement, Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of. But the more Raj practises and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing - until he grows up and stops playing altogether. But when his father becomes ill and asks Raj to play for him, will Raj still remember how to play from the heart?

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3 Up—Young Raj toddles by his father past an unused piano in the living room, though as the years pass, he makes it to the bench, delightfully plucking individual keys until he grows tall enough to reach the sustain pedal. In a beautiful reflection on the illustrations as well as a nod to Reynolds's own personal story, "Raj notice[s] that he [can] mix the notes the way he mixe[s] his watercolors." Colorful notes on a flowing streak of yellow portray a nameless song that Raj produces, inspiring Dad to nurture that talent with piano lessons. Not all enthusiasts turn into prodigies, however, and formal training doesn't always fuel interest. Tiring of the precision and practice, Raj quits the piano and doesn't return until years later to be with his sick father, who makes a request for a song. When Raj is no longer constrained by notations or expectations, the nameless melody comes back, emphasizing the emotional connections music can make, not only within but with others. VERDICT Suitable for a wide age range of music lovers, this is a lyrical and lovingly illustrated story that tugs on the heartstrings.—Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library
