#SoaringScores

Comment below about your favorite movie or composer and why to be entered into the drawing for a score and book pairing.

Winner will be chosen end of day on Wednesday, 10/23.

lover.of.the.classics Can I do both? Favorite composer is probably Beethoven, not JUST because his symphonies are amazing but also because his life was quite inspiring! Favorite movie? 🤔 that one is kinda tough? One of my favorite movies is Walt Disney Pixar‘s The Incredibles, probably because the main character (aka Mr Incredible) reminds me a little bit of my Daddy.🥰 1mo
CrowCAH @lover.of.the.classics of course you can comment on both! Beethoven is amazing; especially for being partially deaf. I‘ve seen The Incredibles once and enjoyed it; super heros! You‘re entered in the drawing. 🥰 1mo
CrowCAH @lover.of.the.classics you were the only one brave enough to comment. Please, email me your shipping address to cynthiaannehurt at gmail dot com, and we‘ll discuss your favorite genres of books and what you like to listen to. Thank you! 😊 4w
lover.of.the.classics @CrowCAH WOW!! Thanks bunches! 4w

The full list of composers (and some musical eras) covered in this children's book. I am in awe of how wonderful this book is. I'd like to think the library got an updated edition of it and that's why this was in the free sale pile. I think kids would benefit from these types of books. 🎶🎶🎶😍😍😍

kristinshafel The author should do a follow-up with all women composers! 3y
Karenlovesbooks No Bob Dylan? My hubby would be appalled that the Beatles are in this and not Bob! 🎶 3y
Lynnsoprano Wow. That's pretty complete. I'd make a few additions/deletions, but there are some names there that I wouldn't know if I hadn't been a music history major. 3y

I found this wonderful picture book about composers at the library's free book sale and tonight I read to my son about one of my favorite composers (whose grave I've actually been to). I'm trying to raise a cultured kid...even if he was begging for a cookie the entire time I was reading to him 😅🇨🇿
