Great Book!!!!!

Review by Farmer

I really enjoyed this one---it tells about his life, but the most interesting thing is that he was able to follow his dream, despite that his father did not approve and thought that music was just a waste of time. But his father was proven wrong!!! So, if you have a talent---follow your dream, even if there are naysayers!!

Review by sarahf9056

I love music, and i find it very interesting that Leonard Bernstein was a pianist and a conductor. A fact about me is that i play the piano myself (of course with a piano teacher).

It was interesting!

Review by Ewo745

I liked how it talks about music. I liked learning about Lenny's history. It kept me entertained and I read it pretty quickly.
