A factual Mozart book of anecdotes aimed at upper elementary. A bit dated with poor quality paper.
by Catherine Brighton
well reviewed but difficult to find. I currently have it on back order.
A delightful Mozart book which tells a story of Mozart and how he gained inspiration from a bird to write his Piano Concerto #17. It is NOT a true historical account, and that should be made clear to kids reading it. However it is a delightful tale that gives a flavor of Vienna and Mozart's time. It also uses historical facts in that Mozart actually DID have a pet starling that he said could sing the theme the his 17th Piano Concerto in Gmajor. A good excuse to listen to the work after the kids read the book!
The story of Mozart and the premier of Don Giovanni. A delightfully illustrated and dramatically told tale.
A factual introduction for older readers - grade 5-7.
KOO7's Library - A long list of Mozart books. Scroll down half way to find children's books’.
