Beethoven for Henry is the third in the series of books for young readers.
"I read Beethoven for Henry to my son. I think I learned as much as he did. I liked the way musical instruments were pictured and described. Together we learned a lot of new musical terms. He wants to learn to play the piano but we don't have a piano. Thanks, Miriam! "
