My Family Plays Music by Judy Cox and Illustrated by Elbrite Brown
With everyone in her family making music, this spunky girl
can't help but want to join in! Her triangle chimes along with Dad's string quartet, and her maracas are in swing with Uncle Woody's big band. From jazz to rock 'n' roll to polkas, this young percussionist finds just the right beat for all kinds of music. Festive cut-paper art harmonizes perfectly with this soulful introduction to music.I enjoyed reading this book. I think that it is a nice introduction to various genres of music told from a child's perspective. I will be recommending this book to friends and co-workers who are music teachers and who have children who play instruments, sing, and/or just love music... or will soon....This book should be in every home, school, and public library.
