Starts to be a good story of friendship, but it does not come together well in the end, you really don t know what the theme or message was in the end The break out texts of conversions make little sense and distract from the story.
This book felt unfinished There was a good lesson, but I do not think that it was stated clearly and so the story felt open at the end There should have been something to wrap it up.
cute pictures but the story seemed a little jumpy.
Though I am not sure about how the book ended, it was an overall good book on friendship It shows that two people do not have to be exactly alike to enjoy each other s company It shows a low point in their friendship and how one friend deals with the situation.
This would be a good point of view read aloud to teach with
This is about the perseverance of a friendship through a relatively minor bump One friend knows that the other friend wants to learn piano, so she makes her a cardboard keyboard to practice on just like Rachmaninoff did when he was sailing to the United States to premier a new composition Only problem is, the gift is not what the other friend had in mind when it came to learning the piano She returns the gift, causing the other friend to wonder if their friendship is in jeopardy because they are [...]

This is a gentle story that deals with a common theme of friendship but instead of turning the problem into a gigantic conflict like found in so many stories for children, Perkins chose to present this life s little bump as just what it is a little bump that can be ironed out by thinking hard and by not blowing it out of proportion However, since it is such a placid tale, it does not quite have the tension needed to sustain my interest The simple truth is just that simple I don t feel like I nee [...]

Debbie makes her friend Tina a card board piano that she spent a lot of time on She is convinced that Tina will love the card piano so that she can practice and learn piano too However, just because you are good friends with someone doesn t mean you will always see things eye to eye I would bring this into my classroom to explain that friendships aren t perfect and that its okay to have different perspectives However, with friendships comes communication and honesty which is important to express [...]

This is a book about two girls who are best friends In the story the author tells how they are similar and sometimes different Even though they have many things in common, they have things they don t share in common The author shows that even though there are problems with your friends, they will be just little and it can be solved This is a good book for children especially to develop social skills and how to react when things are going well with their friends.
Debbie s story continues with this vignette look into her childhood with her best friend Debbie dreams of how the two friends are alike and amazing together, and will be so when her friend learns to play the piano, using a cardboard piano that Debbie has thoughtfully made A younger than average girl s coming of age and friendship is beautifully presented through pen and ink and watercolor.
This book is about a girl that tries to teach her friend how to play music on a cardboard piano Her friend liked the idea at first, but when she couldn t make music from the cardboard piano, she lost interest The girl then tries to solve why the cardboard piano didn t work Ultimately, this book is about pretending If the girls had pretended that the cardboard piano could be played, then they would have been able to make music from it.
This is great book to describe how even though you might have mostly everything in common with you best friend , you might not agree on everything The book describes how that even if that is so it doesn t make you and friend any less of best friends This is a great book to have for students when they need to work out their issues.
This book had a cute underlying message that you can still be friends with someone even if you don t agree on everything However, I found it to be very confusing because the plot skipped around a lot Also, it is a tricky book to read aloud because there are lots of speech bubbles that don t flow naturally.
Debbie and Tina are best friends Debbie is learning to play the piano and Tina gets a little jealous Debbie makes Tina a cardboard piano to try and practice on but Tina is no longer interested because it s not the same as playing in real life Debbie and Tina learn that to be best friends you don t have to like all the same things.
While the friendship is lovely and the story of the cardboard piano interesting, it doesn t seem to have any bearing on the story I guess the only lesson is that sometimes people don t like doing the same things Or that nice gestures can be rejected and you can still remain friends I found it confusing.
This is a story about friendship I thought it was sweetly told and I liked the resolved ending The illustrations were cute as well I would recommend Taken from my book reviews blog reviewsatmse 2009
I have an attachment to the title of this book I tried to learn how to play piano when I was a child on a cardboard keyboard it doesn t work This is of a story of 2 good friends, 2 best friends think Wicked and the fun things they do together.
This is a great book about being friends Sometimes you are the same sometimes you are different And sometimes something you do that is very nice will not be appreciated as much as you think it will And in the end all of that is ok Grades 2
I loved the creativity behind this book and what Debbie does for Tina She does a kind act for her friend and expects Tina to love it This book shows readers that even though you may be best friends with someone, you will still not agree on everything.
I like this book because that friendships to not have to be perfect The people in the friendship can be different and that is okay Not everything you do will work out, but you can still be friends.
To be fair, I didn t watch the dvd that comes with book which might have amped up the charm I liked it I didn t love it the way I love Snow Music and The Broken Cat, but then again, I am just nuts over those.
A story about two best friends who do all the same things Unitl one day Debbie starts taking piano lessons and Tina doesnt Debbie makes Tina a piano out of cardboard, but they both realize it is not the same thing They end up taking dance lessons
A cute story about friendship and dedicated to friends Friends can be different and the same in some ways, have same and different likes, and stay friends even when sometimes their likes are rejected by the other friend so to speak Great story by a Newbery author.
The story of the cardboard piano a good idea I learned that sometimes people don t like doing the same things and it s ok to like different things than others.
I appreciated how the two girls understood that they didn t have to do everything the same way, but I felt like the main problem wasn t resolved I wish Debbie had confronted Tina about the piano.
