Story 7: Because by Mo Willems
Release Date: December 18, 2020

The story of how little things can have a big effect. It starts with Beethoven inspiring Schubert, which lead to symphonies around the world performing his music. This inspiration ultimately leads to a young girl whose uncle is too sick to attend the symphony, so her aunt brings her in his place. This inspires a lifelong love of music in her and she grows up to compose and conduct her own symphonies.
