Little Rat makes Music By Monika Bang-Campbell illustrated by Molly Bang

This is the second Little Rat title in our library collection. We already have Little Rat sets sail.

In this newest book Little Rat wants to be a musician but she needs to learn the patience of practice and that the rewards of beautiful music take time. Her instrument is the violin and at first she is frustrated by the slow pace of her lessons.

The final chapter when Little Rat and her mentor Kitty take to the stage of the Community Hall is just magical. This is a tiny story with a heartwarming message.

I have always loved the work of Molly Bang - look for The paper crane in our library.
