Overview

The Last Holiday Concert by Andrew Clements, Brian Selznick

Winterhope.
It didn't sound like much, but it was a big idea. A very big idea.
It all started when Hart Evans zinged a rubber band that hit Mr. Meinert, the chorus director. Actually, it started before that, when Mr. Meinert learned he was out of a job because the town budget couldn't afford music and art teachers. Mr. Meinert got so mad at Hart that he told the sixth graders he'd had it — they could produce the big holiday concert on their own. Or not. It was all up to them.
What happens when a teacher steps aside and lets the kids run the show? Not what Mr. Meinert would have predicted. And not what Hart Evans would have guessed, not at all.
Out of chaos, infighting, compromise, idealism, and finally, a fragile peace, the sixth grade choral concert was born. And they called it Winterhope.
But would it be the last holiday concert of them all?

This is a very good book and I recommend it to anybody. When I first read this book I was a little slow on it, then when I started to read it more often, I read it faster. Then I got to liking it more. This book is about a boy named Hart, and he wants a Christmas concert. When I moved schools my old school had a Christmas concert, and I hoped that it would have it for my new school. But it didn't. So I know what he is feeling. When he noticed there would not be a concert, he wanted to do everything in his power to bring it back. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is up to read it. This is very good in detail, and is worded very strongly. I love this author, I think he is the best author that I have ever read. I recommend this author to anybody. I think everybody should read books by Andrew Clement.

I was more in to The Fairy Realm Books; I finished them. Before that I had really enjoyed The Magic Tree House books; I finished them too! So I thought to myself, Its time for a new book, which of course was very challenging for me. There is so many good books out there, but i needed a new author. So any way i turned around facing the fiction part of the library, and i honestly am preety picky about every thing; shoes, clothes, food, drink, almost everything!As i was saying, i found the shelf where Andrew Clelment's books were and i was saying negative things about the pictures on her books,(again, very picky,) and i did that repeatively for over 20 times, then finally i agreed on The last holiday concert, which was an exallant book. Its about a boy named hart, but thats all i can tell you for right now otherwise you'll just have to read it yourself. I am right now reading her book No talking and it is a great book too! Thanks guys and Andrew Clelments!!:) p.s is andrew a boy or a girl??:)

The Last holiday Concert is a very good book I would recommend it to people who love the books that have the people in it that will do anything to make something happen. This book is a about a boy name Hart who really enjoys Christmas concert. Last year at his old school they had who and he really hopes that they have one at his new school. But after he notices that they are not going to have one he does anything to get a holiday concert! This is one of my favorite books to read during the holiday times but you can read it whenever you want to.

The Last Holiday Concert by Andrew Clements is about a chorus teacher, Mr. Meinert. He is losing his job because of the school budget. He blows up at Hart Evans and the entire class. He announces that he is stepping down. Mr. Meinert tells the students that they are in charge of the holiday concert.

The most popular student, Hart Evans, is elected to be in charge. It is another great book about how kids can work as a team because they assemble committees and make up a list of songs. I recommend this book to anybody who likes Andrew Clements. I think it connects to a book called Frindle also by Andrew Clements because Mrs. Granger, the teacher, likes to yell too.

Andrew Clements is an author of several picture books, including Big Al and Billy and the Bad Teacher. He taught in Chicago for several years. Today he still writes books in a small shed behind his house in Massachusetts. His books, to me, are always funny.

I bought this book for my 10 year old son, who has been a big Andrew Clements fan ever since we picked up "Frindle" (as have I). He read it a few weeks before his holiday concert and then he shared it with me. We both loved it. I always love the lessons that the children learn about themselves and others in Clements's stories. I also loved the descriptions of the music and concert in this book. I felt like I was sitting in the middle of it.
