9780802795526: Jake the Philharmonic Dog

Like most dogs, Jake loves playing fetch. Unlike most dogs, Jake loves music even more. He loves to wag his tail to the beat of an ordinary day and "sing" with the birds. When his friend Richie, the principal stagehand at the Philharmonic, brings Jake to work one day, Jake is treated to a lesson in real music. He "woofs!" to the tweeting woodwinds and "ruffs!" to the deep horns, but when he hears the entire symphony orchestra practice, he knows to be quiet and listen. And when a crisis develops at that night's performance, Jake steps onstage and steals the show.

About the Author:

Karen LeFrak is a philanthropic New Yorker involved in many charitable endeavors in the city and state, including being an active member of the New York Philharmonic Board of Directors. She is an avid dog-lover, breeding and showing champion poodles. Karen and two of her retired champion poodles visit pediatric units in hospitals to provide animal-assisted therapy. She is married to Richard LeFrak, President of the LeFrak Organization, and they have two sons, Harrison and James. Together they divide their time between Manhattan and Southampton, with their flock of poodles. Karen will be donating her proceeds from this book to the New York Philharmonic.

Marcin Baranski doesn't own a dog yet, but after completing this book, he thinks that one might be the perfect addition to his new garden. Over the past six years, he has a become well-known illustrator for Cosmopolitan magazine. Marcin is an illustrator and a painter, and he lives in Krakow, Poland, with his wife and son. This is Marcin's first children's book.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-2–Jake, canine friend to Richie, the principal stagehand of the Philharmonic Orchestra, answers the birds, the cars, and the clap of thunder with a distinct bark, a wagging tail, or flattened ears and a whine. Jake simply loves sound. His first trip to Richies workplace confounds him as he confuses car horns with the brass section and the rumble of thunder with the boom of the percussion section. It also results in his false identification of the conductors wand as a new toy and eventual duty as principal stagepaw. LeFrak introduces musical terms within the story, including identification of the instruments. Illustrations, done in acrylic and tempera paint, frame the account of the pups activities. This straightforward, predictable story will appeal to dog lovers and may serve as a painless introduction to the orchestra as well. Pair it with Alan Madisons Pecorinos First Concert (S & S, 2005) or Lloyd Mosss eye-catching Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin (S & S, 1995).–Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX
