I read "Hannah Waters & the daughter of JSB" and thought it was a wonderful way of getting young children to appreciate music. I am thinking especially of those who were not exposed to Classical music at home. Hannah Waters' situation is a bit unusual.
I was wondering where you got the idea to write this book. I appreciate how much attention you paid to the details regarding the historical depiction of Catharina, and the musical aspects of Hannah's playing.
I hope my question is not too intrusive, but I would like to present this book and you as an exemplary author of Children's Literature (I am currently attending Teacher's College).
