A Stringy Situation
In this imaginary tale, it is not unusual for inanimate objects to assume life forms, act as though they were humans, or even interact with humans. The story begins with a couple, Mr. and Mrs. String, who are spending a special evening at home. Little do they realize the perils that lie ahead...
A Stringy Situation is a fantasy tale written by writer Dora Gray, Ph.D. This chapter book was originally part of Dr. Gray’s thesis leading to her Master of Education degree from Cambridge College, USA. Her thesis intended to demonstrate how the study of music in any form substantially contributes to higher levels of academic achievement. One of the goals was to help music educators motivate their students to participate more readily and often during class and to aid them with other subjects such as mathematics, by increasing focus and linking concepts. The book stimulates the imaginations of young readers while preparing them for the language of music and all the benefits that it encompasses.
