Drum Dream Girl: How One Girl’s Courage Changed Music
In this book, a girl dreams of playing a drum, but her father and everyone else says that only boys can play drums. So she just has to keep dreaming and drumming her own rhythms. Finally her father finds her a teacher who teaches her even more and sees that she can play really well. He helps her until she is ready to play the drums in a cafe on the street. So finally she is able to show that girls can play drums too.
The message of the book is that anyone can do anything they dream about doing, and they shouldn’t be kept back from their dreams just because they are a boy or a girl. I think that is a good message. I like the way the story is told; it doesn’t really rhyme but it is like a poem. The pictures are pretty and very colorful; they make you think of the girl’s dream and they are like her dreams, as she floats around on the music she creates. I was glad that her father finally helped her to reach her dream.
