Listen to violinist Joshua Bell, his mother Shirley and his son Josef read the children's book "Dance of the Violin." The book is inspired by a music competition that Bell participated in as a kid which started as a disaster, but ended as the best day ever. The book is written by Kathy Stinson. Find the illustrated version here.
