Yang the Youngest and His Terrible Ear by Lensey Namioka

Everyone in the Yang family is a talented musician except for nine-year-old Yingtao, the youngest Yang. Even after years of violin lessons from his father, Yingtao cannot make beautiful music.

Now that his family has moved from China to Seattle, Yingtao wants to learn English and make new friends at school. Still, he must make time to practice his violin for an important family recital to help his father get more students. Yingtao is afraid his screeching violin will ruin the recital. But he's even more afraid to tell his family that he has found something he likes better than music.

Together he and his new friend Matthew think of a sure way to save the recital. They are certain nothing will go wrong.

Great book for teachers to read aloud or to have the entire class read. Good topics for discussion. Well written and keeps students' interest. Will get them wanting to read the other 3 books in the series.

When I first read the back of this book I didn't think it would be this outstanding. And when I started reading the book I knew in almost an instant that I was totally wrong because right away I started to love it even more and more. I kept on reading and reading and when I finally finished I was so surprised at how much of a great book it was.

The book was about a chinese boy who moved to Delaware. His brothers and sisters were all mean to him except for his sister closest to him. He had a bad hearing for the instrument he was playing. It hes great information for musicions.
