Len was so overwhelmed with excitement, that he didn’t know what he was supposed to feel or do. He had some questions, but decided not to call Uncle Tim.
The very next day, Len brought the invitation to his teacher. Ms. Richards was elated to share the news with the class that Len’s uncle was going to be the guest performer at the school concert.
On Thursday, Len arrived to class wearing a blazer with his violin in its case. The classroom full of students welcomed Len with smiles as he quietly took his seat and started his assignment. The other boys whispered “Violen,” to get Lenny’s attention. They all gave him thumbs up in approval. When it was time for the assembly, Lenny lined up behind Miguel on the walk to the auditorium for the special concert. Lenny didn’t say a word. nor did Miguel, except for complimenting his blazer.
Notes: You are reading an excerpt from my 1st children’s picture book, Violen. Violen is a story about a young boy who has an extraordinary gift and passion to play the violin. I will be sharing a page or two a day. Follow along, and if you like my story, please tag your friends or share a link of this post. Thanks for your support.
