PDF Gabriella's Song

Gabriella's SongI did not enjoy this book I thought that the illustrations were dull and I wish that they were colorful I also think that only students who are interested in music would want to read this book I found it to be dull and that many students would enjoy reading about interesting topics I think that if a child was interested in music that this would be the book for them but many children would rather read about other topics instead of this This would be great for an elementary music class and the teacher could ossibly get their students excited about music I think that better books are out there than this book But For Certain Instances This for certain instances this would appeal to young readers I discovered this book as it was featured as one of the March 2011 Music themed reads for the Picture book club in the Children s Books group here at Goodreads We really enjoyed the story I m not sure it would have been a book that we would have chosen on our own so I m thankful once again for this group introducing us to a wide variety of books I like the idea that little Giselle found music in the everyday sounds around her While reading the story we attempted to make a song from the sounds in the book with each of us repeating a sound I don t think we uite captured the essence of the beauty of Gabriella s song but it was fun and it reminded me of a musical round that the music teacher in our girls school taught with better results I might add The illustrations were interesting and I love that the composer made a beautiful symphony out of Gabriella s little tune All in all it was a fun book to read aloud A young Venetian girl keenly attuned to the sounds of daily life in her city the crying of street vendors the flap flap of Adrian Piper A Retrospective 1965 2000 pigeon wings the jing aling ling of lire the ting aling ling of church bells hums an impromptu tune at the baker s and going on her way is unaware until much later that her song has gone out into the city and has found its way to the ears of composer Giuseppe del Pietro But when del Pietrouts on a concert to share his latest symphony the citizens of Venice and Gabriella in articular hear something very familiarI enjoyed Gabriella s Song appreciating the idea that sometimes music can be found in The Everyday Sounds Around everyday sounds around and That It Can Speak it can speak different eople in different ways I also really liked the way that it highlights the connections between formal art music what we often call classical music and other modes of musical expression It may seem obvious to say that all music is interconnected but I think that this is something eople tend to forget in their haste to categorize by genre The ink and watercolor illustrations by Giselle Potter have a distinctively whimsical charm well suited to the story All in all In the streets and canals of Venice Gabriella can hear nothing but sweet music The drying laundry goes slap slap the church bells go ting aling ling Sweet little book one of six chosen by the Picture Book Club to which I belong as The Dream Archipelago part of our music themed March readingrogram that is well worth the young music lover s time For some reason this came up in the library catalog when I was searching for books on birds "No idea why really because just having a few birds on the cover did not make it ualify And erhaps that " idea why really because just having a few birds on the cover did not make it ualify And erhaps that art of why I didn t care so much for this one I try to evaluate a book based on what it actually is and not because of my expectations but well it s hard And I m human So there we are I actually think the story itself is a nice one although I feel like it should have been based on a true story and my brain was disappointed that there s no evidence that this is so And while I did like the colors used in the illustrations the ictures themselves were unappealing A well crafted story with truly ugly illustrations Gabriella s Song is a sweet and charming book I appreciated the warm color use in the illustrations adding to the cozy feel of the book I liked the storyline of a little girl walking through Venice with a song that catches on throughout the city I thought it did a nice job of expressing how music affects everyone differently It was also nice to see the culture of the city The author note in the beginning was helpful in understanding this city of musicThis book was a choice of the Children s Picture Book Club monthly reads found here When I first They Say In Harlan County An Oral History picked up Candace Fleming s Gabriella s Song from theublic library I was actually not at all sure wether I would even at all enjoy it as I did not and still do not find the book cover image all that visually appealing I liked the colour schemes but especially Gabriella s facial expression was not at all to my liking the colour schemes but especially Gabriella s facial expression was not at all to my liking rather stagnant frozen and ungirllikeHowever it is indeed true that one should really NOT judge a book by its roverbial cover as Gabriella s Song truly is a wonderful remarkable icture book offering to share with children especially children interested in music and especially how music is created andor Blackwell S Wrath perceived the main featuredoint being at least for and to me that music can be found anywhere and everywhere the sounds of the city are music just like human singing is music but also that music is different for everyone that it is and can be Alabaster perceived and enjoyed in a multitude of different ways Gabriella s song iserceived and remembered as happy and rollicking by the baker while the widow Area Changes For Forest Cover Types In The United States 1952 To 1997 With Projections To 2050 perceives it as sad as a nostalgic longing for youth for her happier days Gabriella s Song also rather clearly demonstrates that music even the music of the great composers neither exists in a vacuum nor is it created in a vacuum that it representsersonal talent and ability

Nd the lire go jing aling ling Soon Gabriella is humming her way through town and everyone hears her song Some find it sad others smile when they hear.

Ined with the inspiration by and from the sounds smells and sights around us And with that truth in mind I really do so much appreciate the fact that Candace Fleming shows the famous composer Giuseppe del Pietro The Netherlands publicly acknowledging the fact that his new symphony has indeed been inspired by Gabriella s song which had in turn been inspired by the sounds smells and sights of Venice itself and I do also wonder andleasantly so if the model for del Pietro might have been the famous Venetian composer Antonio VivaldiI am still trying to decide whether Giselle Potter s accompanying illustrations are entirely to my liking The colour texture and the depiction of the sights and sounds of Venice are wonderful expressive descriptive a real joy to visualise and behold However the human figures while generally well enough executed on a Many Colors Cultural Intelligence For A Changing Church physical level oftem seem to feature facial expressions that I for one tend to find than a bit off so to speak especially Gabriella s face always seems without much emotion and generally a touch too old for a little girl But all in all I really enjoyed and continue to massively appreciate this little gem of aicture book and would not hesitate to highly recommend Gabriella s Song to anyone seeking an evocatively oetic enchanting celebration of music and of how the sounds the whole an evocatively oetic enchanting celebration of music and of how the sounds the whole of one s surroundings can and do inspire music and musical composition musical creation A bit too simple Odd The Forest And The Trees pictures Everything works except theeople In her travels around Venice little Gabriella uses snippets of the sounds she hears to create a little song which inspires another to write a symphonyGiselle Potter s illustrations ut a song in my heart I m giving this book 5 stars well 4 actually because of both the "illustrations and the story I like that the informative author s note started " and the story I like that the informative author s note started the book vs it being at the end as is typicalThe illustrations are truly lovely I want to go to Venice It s wonderfully depicted I also like how some of the hanging laundry on the inside covers are cloths with music scores on them And how some of the illustrations are whimsical And just everything about them even eople s faces though they took me a very little bit of time to appreciate themThe story is sweet I love how the tune starts travels and evolves I love the acknowledgement given at the end Most importantly it love how the tune starts travels and evolves I love the acknowledgement given at the end Most importantly it how the same music can evoke different feelings in different Gegenstrom Verteilung people depending on theerson and their mood It was a Everything S A Verb perfect book to read as one of six books selected for March s music theme for the Picture Books Club over at the Children s Books groupI also appreciated the smattering of Italian words and the sound effect words and the latter contribute to making this book fun to read aloud.
