"Ada Ríos great up in a town made of trash."
Fortunately for Ada, however, a music teacher offers lessons to kids in Cateura - but doesn't have enough instruments to go around. So, people in the community come together to make instruments out of what they can scavenge. Against the odds, the "recycled orchestra" travels and tours.

Vivid illustrations in collage, acrylic glazes and paints, drawings, and digital media on stipple paper reinforce the cobbled-together nature of the orchestra itself.

Back matter includes an author's note, a photograph, quotes, and more information (websites and videos). ( )

Author Susan Hood and illustrator Sally Wern Comport join forces in this immensely moving look at Paraguay's 'Recycled Orchestra,' a symphony made up of children from one of South America's poorest slums, playing instruments created from trash items taken from the dump around which their village was built. The story focuses on Ada Ríos, a young girl in Cateura, a village of gancheros (recyclers) that sprung up beside the main trash dump for Paraguay's capital city of Asunción. Part of a music-loving family, Ada had little chance to pursue this subject until engineer and amateur musician Favio Chávez came to town, offering free lessons to the children there. When there weren't enough instruments to go around, Chávez and the children had to get creative, making their own homemade instruments from what they could find. Learning to play together, the orchestra improved, eventually giving their first concert. Ada herself was made first violin, and the group became better and better known, garnering invitations to play, not just in other cities, but in other countries as well...

Although I have been aware of Ada's Violin: The Story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay since its publication back in 2016, and although I am interested in the subject, I never seem to have gotten around to it until now. I'm glad I finally did, as I found it to be an immensely moving and inspirational book, pairing a story that had me tearing up on more than one occasion with gorgeous mixed media artwork that had me poring over the pages. The style of artwork created by Sally Wern Comport here - she used collage, acrylic glazes and paints, drawing and digital media - is well-suited to the story, as it incorporates various recycled objects (like bits of paper) into the visuals. So too did Ada and her friends incorporate found objects into their instruments, creating music and art from something that others found useless. The story highlights the resilience of the human spirit and the creativity of the human mind, as people with almost nothing find a way to make the world around them more beautiful. I was pleased to learn, in the extensive afterword, that the orchestra has raised money to improve the lives of the people of Cateura. As someone who is a fan of the rock band Metallica, I was also pleased to discover that the orchestra performed with them, in a massive concert in Colombia. Kudos to Metallica for having them as an opening act - I will definitely be seeking out the video of that performance, as well as the 60 Minutes special devoted to the orchestra. Highly recommended to picture-book readers looking for stories about poverty, creativity, recycling and making music. ( )

Cool collages. Inspiring and moving. Good for discussions about wealth and poverty,

In Ada's Violin, everyone in her town works at the recycling plant and they're quite unhappy about it. One day the children are able to take a music class but need more instruments. The workers of the plant were able to make them instruments out of the trash to create beautiful music. I would say this book is about optimism and change. Ada kept a positive outlook on the recycling plant and eventually their lives were changed. The pictures in this book are great but I really like them because they help to show just how much the music has affected everyone's life. ( )
