   schema:description "Yo-Yo Ma is an internationally acclaimed cello virtuoso. My Son, Yo-Yo is the compelling story of his life from the cradle to his entering Harvard University at the age of seventeen. It is told by his mother but narrated and written by Dr. John A. Rallo. By telling the story of her son, Marina Ma hopes other young people will realize life is a struggle uphill and that pain and hard work are part of growing up. In her story, love of family is the main sustaining force keeping it together especially during difficult times. The book, written in warm, conversational style, highlights events in the development of the "boy wonder." It is divided into thirty short chapters enriched by numerous photographs from the family album."@en ;
