Written by Chieri Uegaki. Illustrated by Qin Leng.
Hana Hashimoto has signed up to play her violin at her school's talent show. The trouble is, she's only a beginner, and she's only had three lessons. Her brothers insist she isn't good enough. “It's a talent show, Hana,” they tell her, “You'll be a disaster!” Hana remembers how wonderfully her talented grandfather, or Ojiichan, played his violin when she was visiting him in Japan. So, just like Ojiichan, Hana practices every day. She is determined to play her best. When Hana's confidence wavers on the night of the show, however, she begins to wonder if her brothers were right. But then Hana surprises everyone once it's her turn to perform — even herself! This inspiring book offers hope and confidence to all children who are yearning to master something difficult. Perhaps even more important, it allows children to see that there is more than one way to be successful at a task. Ages 4-8.
