The Prince Who Was a Piccolo - Book Review


 The Prince Who Was a Piccolo

Written by Barbara Roman

Illustrated by Vladimir Cebu

 

  • ASIN ‏ : ‎ B0BJYD1KYF
  • Publisher ‏ : ‎ Independently published (Oct. 24 2022)
  • Language ‏ : ‎ English
  • Paperback ‏ : ‎ 32 pages
  • ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 979-8359896238

About the Book:

When his father, the King, demands that the Prince be a “Royal Trumpet”, the unhappy boy brings doom and gloom to the kingdom until a mystical maiden guides him to finding his own unique music.

Barbara Roman's 'The Prince Who Was A Piccolo' teaches children about self-esteem, asserting independence, attitudes, and being comfortable with their own identity. They will also learn about different musical instruments and the influence of music on our lives and emotions. There are mystical qualities in the story as it metaphorically touches on meditation, intuition, and spiritual guidance.

Beautifully illustrated by Vladimir Cebu, this book is a rich learning experience for children, as they learn about music instruments, and ways to express their emotions.

 

What I Thought: 

 The Prince Who Was a Piccolo is a wonderful story with the subtle underlying moral value for children to believe in themself and strive for their own talents in life, whatever those talents may be.  I fell in love with the prince and his brave attitude to not give up searching for his own musical talent, even though his musical talent may not please his father the king. The story is so well written that I believe this book will become a classic in children's literature. The artwork is fantastic. This story is one of the most creative stories I've read in children's literature in several years. Kudos to the author!

 

About the Author:

 


 As Barbara Roman, I am the author of the children's books, "Alicia and the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13" and "Hubert in Heaven - a hi-tech angel gets his wings."
