    1. I absolutely adore this book for so very many reasons. I have favourite pages, favourite series of illustrations and am completely enchanted by the green grass that we see one night at dusk. Wow. And then there is the story. A story of determination, perseverance and creativity. Absolutely about courage and dreaming. Connection to family – Ojiichan (Grandfather) in Japan who played Second Violin in front of the Imperial Family and his influence on little Hana who wants to play the violin too. [...]

    2. I highly recommend this beautifully illustrated book of ambition, resilience and courage, told in a delightful story. Grandparents can be special people in the lives of young children and Hana’s is certainly inspirational for her. He is an accomplished violinist and plays for her and her brothers whilst they stay at his home. The author uses fantastic descriptions to help the reader imagine the feelings of the characters of this story - for example, when “Hana walked onto the stage . . . an [...]

    3. Age: Preschool-2nd gradeMusic: ViolinFamily: Grandpa, granddaughterFamiliar Experience: StagefrightCulture: Japanese-AmericanAfter Hana signs up for the talent show to play her violin, her brothers laugh at her because she had only just started to learn. Although affected by her brother's reservations, she is soothed by memories of her grandfather who was famous for his violin playing and would play around the house. Uegaki describes Hana's memories in the sweetest but not saccharine way. The te [...]

    4. A beautiful book with a charming story. I could imagine reading this to both my grand daughters one aged 8 and the other aged 5. The story and illustrations will appeal across many ages. The delicate drawings, the subdued colours were all so sensitive to the narrative. I loved the unusual adjectives: walloping heart, oceanic roar, the feeling of happy sadness… to name a few. A charming little story and brilliantly illustrated. Thank you I enjoyed this book immensely.I award it 5 stars.

    5. This was a little too wordy for a picture book in my opinion, but that's my only real complaint. At first I was worried that Hana would bring across a magical performance after having only played a few days (that's how it would happen in Lego Friends or Strawberry Shortcake, ugh), but Uegaki's ending was much, much better.As a lifelong violinist, I can't help but notice when something is off pictures of violinists, especially in the way the instrument is held. This book is quite good; she's hold [...]

    6. Hana has signed up to play her violin at the school talent show. But she has only had 3 lessons and her brothers are certain she will make a fool of herself. Each day, Hana practices and practices. She hopes to someday become as good at violin as her grandfather is. Finally, the day of the talent show arrives. Hana is nervous. Will she make a fool of herself? Her performance is definitely not what I was expecting.Hana shows that it takes hard work and persistence to develop a talent. She also sh [...]

    7. I think this book is so sweet, and not just because I'm going to have to purchase this for my niece, the youngest girl with two older brothers, one of whom is named Kenji like in the book. ;) A story about learning an instrument and trying and succeeding in your own way, while also looking at those we love who came before, this story was sweet and touching.

    8. As a former student of Oriental Studies and an avid defender of variety in books, particularly children's I couldn't miss the opportunity to read Chieri Uegaki's Hana Hashimoto, Sixth Violin.Hana is a brave girl, who after three violin lessons feels ready to sign up for the talent show even though her brothers mock her. Hana's parents seem more confident and Hana let's her grandfather's words and music inspire her as she shows the reader the value of practice and dedication.When I was little I w [...]

    9. I received a free ARC copy of this book by the book's publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.After listening to Ojiichan play the violin for her, Hana has her heart set on learning how to play the violin too. Just a few days after beginning to learn how to play the violin, Hana wants to enter the talent contest. She practices everywhere, in front of her brothers and her parents, even her dog, Jojo or an old picture of Ojiichan. Whilst performing alone, Hana can pretend she is [...]

    10. Hana Hashimoto is one determined little girl when it comes to her violin lessons. After only three, she signs up for the school talent show causing her brothers to laugh hysterically and proclaim she will not bring her talent at all to the show, because she has none. Now, that's mean isn't it? Her grandfather, Ojiichan, was a professional violin player in Japan. He played beautifully for the siblings when they had gone to visit him last summer. Hana was so enamoured with his skill she decided th [...]

    11. Hana Hashimoto is a little girl who, inspired by her grandfather, is learning how to play violin. Just after attending three lessons, she is determined to enter a talent show and play in front of a crowd. This idea of hers is discredited by her two older brothers who think that she is still too inexperienced with the violin. However, despite this lack of encouragement, Hana perseveres and keeps on training her skills, always keeping in mind how listening to her Ojiichan play made her feel.There [...]

    12. Reviewed from a digital ARC provided by Netgalley. With absolutely gorgeous lyrical language, Chieri Uegaki tells the story of a little girl learning to play the violin in her own special way. Hana has only had three violin lessons when she decides to enter the school talent show. Her brothers laugh at her, but she recalls the beautiful notes played by her Ojiisan (grandfather) when she visited Japan and longs to play like him. Every day she practices, playing for her parents, her dog, even a pi [...]

    13. "Ojiichan played every morning. From his study, the clear, bright notes would drift upstairs, through the shoji screen doors to where Hana slept on sweet-smelling tatmi mats, and coax her awake as gently as sunshine."Hana's grandfather plays classical music, folk songs, and melodies inspired by nature. But Hana has only had three lessons, and her big brothers tell her that her performance at the school talent show is sure to be a disaster! In sprightly ink and watercolor art, we see Hana practic [...]

    14. Hana Hashimoto, Sixth ViolinWritten by Chieri UegakiGrandparents are special people. We seldom forget the relationship and bond we share with our Grandparents. Hana is no different. She remembers her Grandpa in Japan. She has special memories of him entertaining her with his music. Grandpa played in an Orchestra and he was very good. He also liked to make fun sounds with his music. Hana decides to play the violin for the school talent show. Her brothers think this is hilarious and are sure she i [...]

    15. Even though she is only a beginning violinist, Hana Hashimoto still wants to participate in the school talent show. As she practices and then performs, she channels her talented grandfather who is an accomplished violinist and is able to conquer her fears about being in front of a large audience. Drawing inspiration from nature, she emulates the sounds made by humming bees, yowling cats, or rain as it plops on an umbrella. I loved the message about persistence and self-determination as well as i [...]

    16. I seriously admire Hana, the young protagonist of this book. She has only had 3 violin lessons with her grandfather, and she is ready to demonstrate her skill at a school talent show! Her brothers are her personal Statler and Waldorf who tell her that she doesn't have the titular talent, and neither does she know what she's doing it all and Hana isn't exactly confident herself. But what she produces on stage is something quite interesting.It's such a pretty book, with illustrations that perfectl [...]

    17. It’s a beautiful, loving story of the memories of a grandfather who is an accomplished violinist, who played for her when she visited him, the classics, but also beautifully imagined pieces like “a crow cawing for her seven chicks” and “the sound of raindrops on the oil-paper umbrella Hana twirled under during summer storms.” When Hana, a beginner, decides to play for the school’s talent show, her brothers think she’s foolish, but what happens on stage is a sweet surprise to everyo [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this tale of Hana and her violin. Hana has only begun to play her violin and she's performing at her school's talent show soon. Her brothers tease her beginner-level skills, but she's determined to do well. Thanks to the memories of her grandfather and his extraordinary playing, Hana is inspired during her performance. The unexpected-yet-happy ending is pitch perfect for this story.

    19. This book made me smile so much. Hana has started taking violin lessons after spending time with her grandfather in Japan who plays. Now she feels she is ready to be in a talent show. Her brothers are not so sure since she has only had three lessons. She has a surprise for them though as she practices sound effects with her violin and shows them off. This is a wonderful book to use with primary children particularly in a music class.

    20. Loved this book! Would recommend it to any child who has ever been told that they "couldn't" do something. This book is beautifully written, especially the parts that show the impact that her grandfather had on her through his own violin playing and especially his belief in and encouragement of her becoming a violinist.

    21. Inspired by her grandfather, a professional violinist, Hana sings up to perform at the school talent even though she's had only a few lessons. A wonderful story that will especially resonate with readers who suffered stage fright.

    22. This copy kindly provided by NetGalley on behalf of the publisher A nice story of a girl following her dreams of playing violin like her grandfather. Just a little too dull & long for my son to enjoy

    23. Part one: DEFINITIONSTo me, knowledge is all about connecting different pieces of information together to form a web that can uphold your arguments and beliefs. Therefore, connecting new knowledge or texts to outside things is very, very important.Text-to-world connection: this type of connection is perhaps the hardest to pin down, but it’s like a larger version of the text-to-text connection, except that we are now connecting it to the news story we heard on the radio yesterday, the woman in [...]

    24. Hana Hashimoto announces that she will be playing the violin for the school talent show, and her brothers laugh so hard they almost fall out of a tree. Hana had recently spent the summer with her grandfather Ojiichan in Japan, and he played the violin every wakening second that he could. Hana enjoyed listening to her grandfather play the violin, especially when he played little tunes like the chirp of a cricket, and the how he could mimic the raindrops on an oil-paper umbrella. Hana enjoyed this [...]

    25. Hanna Hashimoto, Sixth Violin by Chieri Uegaki and Qin Leng Read in October, 2016I was drawn to this book because of the the distinct illustrations by Qin Leng after reading this picture book. Its illustration is poetic. The use of color and angle made these illustrations both romantic and real. And I seemed to hear the sound of violin with the illustrator drawing those little cute music notes in the pictures. Hanna Hashimoto, Sixth Violin tells the story of Hana Hashimoto where she was going to [...]

    26. "Hana Hashimoto, Sixth Violin", a fascinating story of a Japanese girl named Hana who explores her individuality and strengths through her momentous relationship with her grandpa. While her brothers make fun of how she plays the violin and tell her she won't be good enough in the talent show. Hana stays strong and remembers the one person who believed in her the most. The illustrations are gorgeous and I love how the author wrote on every other page. This left room for illustrations to fill the [...]

    27. This is a wonderful inspiration book for any one trying to accomplish something, not only playing an instrument. Hana remembers going to see her grandfather Ojiichan and he played the violin so beautifully. She wanted to be like him, so she started practicing the violin and entered into the school talent show. Despite her brothers telling her she was going to do horrible, she practiced each day. On the day of the talent show she started to think about what her brothers said. But, she pushed thro [...]

    28. Hana fell in love with the violin after she listens to her grandfather play. Hana enters the school talent show and battles some criticism from her brothers. I really liked this book its very relate able. She is learning to play the violin and courageously enters the talent show with only 3 Violin lessons under her belt. I remember learning to play the piano and being overly excited to show off what I learned. This book would be good for grades k-2. Students could learn about Japanese cultural e [...]
