Brings the film to life!
I first read this book as a senior in high school and enjoyed it so much. I found it inspiring and so real that when the film, The Sound of Music, came out, I was delighted to see a whole new generation discovering this wonderful family for themselves. The book holds out to all the beautiful ideals of family life, love, loyalty. This past Christmas I gave it as a little 'extra gift,' to a favorite relative, as his all-time favorite film is The Sound of Music.
