Ada’s Violin: The Story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay – Susan Hood

I first became aware of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay from an episode of 60 Minutes.  This uplifting and inspirational children’s book shares the story of that very special orchestra which is composed of instruments made from recycled trash.  Ada’s Violin is beautifully written and illustrated.  After reading it, I highly recommend watching one of the videos of the orchestra online.
