Cox, Judy, and Amanda Haley. Ukulele Hayley. , 2013.
This story is a about a third grader named Hayley who was unsure of her talents. Shortly after, Hayley bought a ukulele and fell in love with playing it and even started a school "uk" club, planned concerts, and saved the music program!
Judy Cox's writing style is unique. She tells the story as if you were there. She writes and uses words easy enough for middle schoolers to understand and be engaged.
The illustrations are very relevant to the important parts of the book. They are eye-catching and match perfectly to the text.
I enjoyed reading this book! I think the message of this book will grasp it's reader's attention. I would recommend this book to kids if they enjoy music and fiction. This will be appropriate for ages 9-12 year olds.
