Passing the Music Down

Passing the Music Down - Sarah Sullivan, Barry Root A boy with a gift for the fiddle is taken many miles away to an old time fiddler for lessons. The boy learns many things from the old fiddler, including how to be an excellent fiddler.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.”
