This is a thoughtful story that challenges readers to attend to everyday surroundings, to not be so rushed that something beautiful may be missed. Life is too short not to pay attention. A great story with minimal color that dances like the little boy's wonder.
Publisher Summary
When Dylan hears someone playing their violin in the subway he wants to stop and listen, but his mother and other commuters ignore the violinist completely.

Winner of the 2014 TD Children's Literature Awardnow in paperback!

Dylan is someone who notices things. His mom is someone who doesn't. So try as he might, Dylan can't get his mom to listen to the man playing the violin in the subway station. But Dylan is swept away by the beautiful music that fills the air as crowds of oblivious people hurry past.

This gorgeous picture book is based on the true story of Joshua Bell, a world-renowned classical violinist who famously took his instrument down into the Washington D.C. subway for a free concert. More than a thousand commuters rushed by him, but only seven stopped to listen, most of them children.

Kathy Stinson's vividly imagined text combined with Dušan Petricic's illustrations that pulse with energy and movement, expertly demonstrate the transformative power of music. With an afterword by Joshua Bell.
