Audience: Preschool - Preschool
The book begins with an intriguing illustration of sheet music on a clothes line, and an interesting author's note about how opera was born. The beauty of the words, and illustrations, transports the reader to Venice. Here in Venice, we meet a sweet little girl named Gabriella. Gabriella creates a song, which is comprised of the sounds of her town: the street traders, the flap-flap of pigeon wings, and a plethora of other interesting sounds. The town's people begin hearing this song, and also sing it around town. Read this book and you might just begin singing a song of your own!
