Moby Plays the Flute keeps getting top ratings! Check out what people are saying:
“As a teacher, I am always looking for engaging books to read to my students. It is great if it is a book that I can tie in with a lesson. This is especially true if it is a book that models social-emotional skills, such as empathy, kindness, or perseverance. The more books I can show my students about these skills, the happier I am. This book is the perfect book to teach about a growth mindset, perseverance, or resilience. It also would be a good book to introduce Passion Projects if your class does them.”
“This book focuses on persistence and patience. It’s a great book for youngsters of all ages, young and old alike!! It’s a great book to show that being persistent and having confidence can change your outlook on everything!”
“Moby Plays the Flute is such a cute and sweet children’s story with the most delightful illustrations which give the story a bit of a whimsical feel.”
“I was drawn to this book as a music teacher – I love stories about music. This doesn’t disappoint, and I think it would be a great book to read with a child who is starting to learn an instrument to help them to prepare for the patience and perseverance they will need and get excited about learning and playing their instrument!”
“This is the wonderful, heartwarming tale of a father and daughter who learn that even though life may be difficult and not always what you want, persistence and patience always pay off in the end.”
