A young girl named Eleanora, who adores music, is the subject of Musical Soul Mates. She can distinguish between happy and sad sounds, hears them everywhere she goes, and gives them distinct names. She considers music to be her best friend because she confides all her problems to music, and music then supports her in overcoming those problems. Musical Soul Mates explores a young child's thoughts and demonstrates her love of music. Cindy B. Witty is the author, and Estelle Corke created the stunning illustrations. The author uses her passion for reading and education to inspire young people and make learning more fun.

The drawings in Musical Soul Mates are what initially caught my attention. The artwork is so intricately detailed that it's possible to decipher the plot of the book just by glancing at the images. They are expertly drawn and nicely colored. The book's text is colored as well. When describing the story, the author uses descriptive simple language, with a focus on onomatopoeia. Musical Soul Mates teaches kids how to build their self-esteem and get over stage fright. It demonstrates the value of having close friends in one's life as well. I really liked reading Musical Soul Mates, and I recommend it to young readers who are learning the basics since it will encourage their creativity and improve their reading. Cindy Witty deserves praise for her outstanding story.

Musical Soul Mates by Cindy B Witty and Estelle Corke tells us about the everlasting friendship between a girl named Eleanora and a playful raccoon named Aria. The most amazing thing about Eleanora's friend is that Aria represents the music that Eleanora always hears in every sound around her. Eleanora and Aria play, dance, and spend time together. They are inseparable. Once, Eleanora gets anxious about Show and Tell in her school the next day. It turns out she is shy around school kids and is not sure about her performance in front of them. Will Aria help her to overcome this frustration and find new friends?

Cindy B Witty brilliantly shows that Aria, an imaginable friend to an insecure child, is also very real. Aria should help Eleanora transmit to other children the wonderful inner world this little girl has. The very talented Estelle Corke beautifully illustrated Musical Soul Mates. Eleanora is not only an adorable character, but she also has a distinctive visual feature; her boots with zebra print. The loveliest thing is that for Eleanora, these boots make music too! I liked very much that Cindy B Witty added an unexpected adventurous element to the story. Also, it is worth adding that the editorial work is excellent. Musical Soul Mates will remind adult readers about the precious innermost gifts we should share with those around us. This marvelous children's book should be on the shelf of every little reader to inspire, encourage, and support them.

Eleanora has an uncanny love for music. She loves it so much that she feels the music in everything she does, from the clackity clack of her feet tapping the ground to the rumbling of the clouds in the sky. They always sound like beautiful melodies to her and she shares them with her good friend Aria. Some people think her friend may not be real but none of that matters to Eleanora, except for the very real sounds of the extraordinary music they make together. Show and Tell is around the corner and she is at a loss for what to present to the other students in her class. Should she read a book or try something new? Eventually, she realizes her solution has been staring at her all along. Find out more in Cindy B. Witty and Estelle Corke's Musical Soulmates: A Girl Who Hears Music Everywhere.

Musical Soulmates written by Cindy B. Witty and illustrated by Estelle Corke is a beautiful storybook targeting children in their early years. The storyline is short and simple, using visual aids to explore the love and creativity one can find with music. I loved the way a cute, furry animal is used to depict a physical representation of Eleanora's love for music. It appeals to children at an age when they are getting acquainted with pets. The pictures are brightly colored and need next to no explanation as to what they signify, making it a guaranteed hit with children who love color illustrations. The book combines a lovely story with even better pictures to produce the best possible reading experience for a child. This is a great read.
