9780152254834: Violin for Elva, A

A young girl longs to play the violin in this lyrical story that shows it's never too late to pursue your dream. More than anything, Elva wants a violin - but her parents say no. So she pretends. When she should be brushing her teeth, Elva rehearses for recitals. When she should be learning subtraction or going to sleep, she imagines playing all the music in the world. The years pass, but Elva never forgets her childhood wish, and so one day she takes a deep breath and follows her heart...

Review:

"An endearing tale of ambition fulfilled.""--Booklist" "Tusa's illustrations are cheery and absolutely full of life: Readers can almost hear the music Elva does.""--Kirkus" "Quiet humor...provides a tender accompaniment to this meditation on fulfilling one's dreams.""--Publishers Weekly" "This charming book artfully and evocatively explores the joy that comes from following your dreams.""--School Library Journal" "The lessons of persistence and the importance of pursuing one's dreams are communicated in a pleasantly realistic and non-preachy way (Elva needs lessons and practice to play, for instance), and many kids will find the ending satisfying. The text's gentle momentum and understated lyricism make it a fine choice for a readaloud selection.""--Bulletin"
