Tia loves music. She walks the summer streets searching for new sounds and different kinds of music that will transport her from the hot, dry town where she lives to imaginary places filled with castles, mountains, and deep snow.

One day, Tia wanders into the white section of town. Soon she is transfixed by a wonderful melody that drifts towards her from one of the houses. Without thinking, Tia accepts a maid's job from Miss Hartwell, the woman who lives there, just so she can hear more of the music.

The Piano is an uplifting story of caring, friendship, and the connections that can develop between people, no matter how different their ages and backgrounds.

When walking by Miss Hartwell's house Tia, an African American girl, hears beautiful music coming from the house. She wants to take lessons so she does chores for Miss Hartwell. The two help each other and form a true friendship. This is a heartwarming story set in the 1900's. It is a great read aloud for K-4th grade students. I especially love the beautiful illustrations.
