Book Review: Sebastian – A Book About Bach

August 19 2017:

Sebastian – A Book About Bach

from the front flap: “He heard one melody for the violin, one for the trumpet, one for the flute, and one for the oboe. Each instrument has its own voice. And when all the voices sounded at the same time, it was like good friends talking together.”

We really enjoyed reading about Bach’s early life and his family life. It was so interesting to learn that he and his wife had 20 children. And that he lived and worked in Germany all his life, never traveling more than 200 miles from his home.

We enjoyed this one!

We’ve read this book a couple of times and simply love the story. Young Takeboki needs a job and wants to do something that brings him pleasure. He becomes the Flower Keeper in the temple garden.

All throughout his life, friends, family and local people urge him to move on and do something more lucrative. Yet, being a Flower Keeper continues to give him pleasure until the end of his days. Beautiful story about the joy and peace of living life as you like and doing what brings you pleasure! xoxo
