This is a heartwarming tale about family relationships and the inspiration we get from our own family members. The narrative is fairly short and the colorful illustrations complement the story nicely. We really enjoyed reading this book together.

This book is about a boy who learns how to play harmonica from his uncle. His uncle eventually cannot play because of his arthritis, but he passes on the harmonica to his nephew. This story can help discuss old age and passing down important memories, keepsakes, and talents.
