School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-In this picture book, readers learn about various instruments, from the cello to the piano to the cymbals, with some background information about each one. Unfortunately, the text is not well-organized, so children may be lost by all the information provided. The facts are fun and sometimes unusual, e.g., "the first trumpets ever used were made of conch shells!" The illustrations are populated with peppy animals playing different instruments, which may be the only thing that attracts kids. Music teachers are better off extracting the facts mentioned here in isolation rather than trying to use the book as a whole.-Martha Rico, El Paso ISD, TX (c) Copyright 2015.
