October 20 Birthday: WHAT CHARLIE HEARD
Charles Ives, musician
Oct. 20, 1874-May 19, 1954
What Charlie Heard by Mordicai Gerstein (Frances Foster/FSG, 2002)
A composer of innovative music, Charles Ives realized his dream at 77 years of age! What an inspiration. This is one of my all-time favorite picture book biographies.
