for Nina's Waltz
by Corinne Demas
and Deborah Lanino
Nina thinks her father is the best fiddler in the whole state, even in the whole country. As they drive along in the light of early morning to a fiddle contest, she's sure Daddy will win first place. After all, he's going to play his new tune, the special one he wrote for her birthday, "Nina's Waltz". Nina marvels at the ease with which Daddy plays onstage; she's never been able to screw up the courage to play in front of strangers. But when her father is stung by wasps and can't play that day, Nina's heart sinks. And before anyone knows it, Nina does the unexpected -- and heads for the stage to take Daddy's place.
