Ada Ríos grew up in Cateura, a small town in Paraguay built on a landfill. She dreamed of playing the violin, but with little money for anything but the bare essentials, it was never an option...until a music teacher named Favio Chávez arrived. He wanted to give the children of Cateura something special, so he made them instruments out of materials found in the trash. It was a crazy idea, but one that would leave Ada—and her town—forever changed. Now, the Recycled Orchestra plays venues around the world, spreading their message of hope and innovation.

An inspiring true story, illustrated in a picture book style that will appeal to older school age readers. Extend the reading by visiting the Recycled Orchestra's website, or sharing some of videos to hear their music. Better yet, try making your own recycled/upcycled instruments!
