 I wonder what story this is with a tambourine/drum? Maybe an epic poem? A song to sing along? Maybe its about Anait who rescued her husband the King. Strong women in Armenia. I would really love to hear the story!

Best looking library ever--Kansas City. Wonder if they voted on which books to shelve?
