Finding the Music / En pos de la música

By Midwest Book Review

A Junior Library Guild selection, Finding the Music / En pos de la musica is a bilingual English/Spanish picturebook about Reyna, a young girl who accidentally damages the old vihuela (a small guitar-like instrument) that belonged to her abuelito [grandfather] when he was in a mariachi band. Reyna resolved to get the vihuela repaired before her mother notices, and combs the neighborhood in search of someone who knows how to fix it. Her journey leads her to discover the amazing power of music that her abuelito cherished. Finding the Music is especially recommended for public library multicultural picturebook collections.
