My Piano

Written by Jen Fier Jasinski
Illustrated by Anita Bagdi

These are the pedals, pressed down to the ground,

under the soundboard where bridges are bound

fixed to the frame enclosed in the case

that lies on the legs with wheels at their base,

to pillar and prop my piano.

Explore the workings of a grand piano through the eyes of a young musician as she prepares for and performs her first recital to a crowd of friendly faces. Using lyrical text and a cumulative structure to introduce the instrument, curious readers will easily develop an appreciation for its beauty and design. But be sure to stick around for the performance, where the music will swell - ripple - flow - up to the very end of the show.

An adorable main character and richly colored spreads will have readers everywhere applauding and asking for more. This is a great addition for any library, music and performing arts learning center, or home bookshelf!

Look for the companion story, MY VIOLIN, set to release in the spring of 2026!

    • ★★★★★

      Together Jasinski and Bagdi have created a recital from start to finish that will leave readers wanting an encore . . . A ­fantastic music read-aloud to showcase pianos and performances, and maybe inspire some students to prepare for their own recitals. - STARRED REVIEW
