Level 4

This biography on Sebastian Bach is an informative and delightful read! Whether done as a read-aloud or a personal read, children should enjoy this interesting and uplifting story. I love the gentle, optimistic writing of the author as well as the details included, the knowledge gained about the time period, and the elevated vocabulary. This is the only book in the series I have read all the way through, but almost all of them are written by the same authors. The books are available on or on Zeezok also offers a fantastic music appreciation program that goes along with these books.
