"An impeccably researched and told biography of Leonard Bernstein’s musical apprenticeship, from toddlerhood to his conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 25." - Kirkus Reviews

"highly readable and inspiring biography" - Booklist

"Ms. Rubin’s book is written specifically for 9–12 year olds, but anyone who is curious about Bernstein would do well to check out this book. The author’s writing style is simple and direct but not condescending, and she weaves a compelling story sure to capture the interest of Bernstein fans at any age. This reviewer could not put down the book once started. Ms. Rubin really pulls you into life in the Bernstein household." - NY Journal of Books
