Hosea Plays On
Rain or shine and with his saxophone case in hand, Hosea rides the bus to the City of Rochester Public Market. Joyfully, he plays for everyone there, but especially for the children. Today, will he earn enough money to surprise one special child?
This heartwarming story depicts a day in the life of Hosea Missouri Taylor, Jr., whose kindness and passion for music touched the lives of countless people in his community of Rochester, New York, and whose generosity and joy will continue to inspire countless others.
“Both a heartfelt eulogy and a musical inspiration for a whole new generation of young readers.”-Kirkus
