PreS-Gr 2 When the music teacher selects Molly Pink to sing a solo at the school concert, Molly practices constantly, singing in the bathtub, to her teddy in bed and to her muffin at breakfast. However, in front of her parents and brother she cannot singunless they hide their faces. The concert begins, and Molly is too embarrassed to singuntil she locates her family in the audience and sees that her parents have covered their eyes and her brother has turned completely around in his seat. Then Molly is able to sing, and the concert is a success. Preschoolers may require an explanation as to why Molly cannot sing in front of her family, while older children will recognize her embarrassment. The predominate color in the warm opaque watercolor illustrations is pink. Pen and ink is used effectively for outlining, suggesting facial features and speckling to give depth in these otherwise flat static illustrations. A detail from the illustration is picked up in the decorative borders, giving the book a neat and tidy look. Useful for group sharing, particularly in a music class or in a discussion of feelings, this humorous and unusual story is worthy of purchase.
