Description
There's nothing Violet loves more than music, and she plays or sings every chance she gets. But where are the other kids like her-kids who think and dream music all day long? As a baby, in kindergarten, at the beach and the zoo, she never gives up looking for companions. And then one summer day...

Bright, lively, and lyrical, this is a book for kids who march to a different drummer. "Violet's Music" sings to us that the right friend is always out there-as long as we keep looking and hoping, and above all, staying true to ourselves.
