Read this book aloud and talk about heritage and the importance of learning, growing and keeping skills alive from one generation to the next.
Pass it down!
"Know any of my music?" asks the old man. That is the beginning of a wonderful friendship and Marvin invites Jake's parents to bring him out to the farm to play more. They work hard through the day and then at night the playing begins.
The story ends showing Jake as a grown man playing for the crowds and "passing the music down" just as Marvin did to him. At the back you can read the "real" story and both men's achievements.
Highly recommended from our family to yours!
Beautiful pictures and poetic text make this a lovely picture book.
"And when the work is done,
they sit out on the porch.
The old man tunes his fiddle,
and the boy leans in close.
They play `Bonaparte's Retreat'
and `Yew Piney Mountain,'
tunes older than the towns
the boy traveled through,
tunes old as the mist
and twisty as the roads."
