Descrizione articolo


When his parents' friends tell J. B. that he plays the harmonica just like his famous musician father, the boy gives up the instrument, until he realizes that he can play the harmonica and still be himself.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A bit of understated bibliotherapy couched in an appealing story about a family of talented bears. J. B. likes to play the harmonica, but he feels insecure about being compared to his famous harmonica-playing father, who has appeared in Bearnegie Hall. Faced with this first identity crisis, he stops playing for a while until he's coaxed out of his silence by his mother. The story bogs down during page-long heart-to-heart talks with his parents about being himself. The resolution, in which J. B. accepts his father's words, "All of us have our very own song inside," waivers somewhere between the heartfelt and the saccharine. However, the sincere and loving looks on these furry musicians make the ending work. Williams's charcoal drawings enhance the story's warmth and quiet humor; the most effective are those in which backgrounds are almost eliminated so that attention is focused on the round bodies and expressive faces of animals, silhouetted against a white background. A book best for one-to-one sharing or for a primary-grade story session in which discussion is encouraged. --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
