Reading about a child prodigy was interesting and fun. I learned a lot from this simple chapter book, Who was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? by Yona Zeldis Mcdonough. This books explores the life of one of the world’s best classical composers, Mozart. His birthday is today, so I decided to post this review.
First off, I learned way more about Mozart then I thought I would. The author crammed a lot of information in just 103 pages! Did you know that Mozart wrote a symphony at the age of eight? Or that he wrote one of the most well-known songs in the world, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star?
I had been learning about Mozart in piano class, so my teacher let me borrow the book. Also, I liked how the author added fun facts about the culture of people in 1700. She would cut off the story every few pages to add details about what clothes people in Mozart’s time wore, and what type of instruments they used. This was interesting because I learned about their culture and how they acted.
I liked this book. It is great for people who love music and for yournger kids who like chapter books. It is perfect for ages 6 and up. It gets three out of four roses.
