    This unassuming book packs enough info for a detailed children's music class! Subjects range from Music Appreciation topics such as types of instruments, ensembles, and genres all the way to Music Theory topics like reading music and playing basic instruments like the recorder, piano, and guitar. The straightforward presentation is accompanied by illustrations to help demonstrate what the text is saying, and although the text is simple enough for a child to read, the book is pretty text heavy so a parent may want to help get a child started. While the book is not structured to be a curriculum, I'm impressed at how much music education could be obtained by a thorough reading of this book. 127 hardcover pages. Laura

    Like the Inventor's and Explorer's Card Games by the same manufacturer, this deck features famous men on a deck of playing cards. Thirteen famous composers are included in this deck, one on each book of cards. Featured composers are from the Classical and Romantic eras and include Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Handel, and more. Each composer is featured on the center of a type of card, along with a list of their most famous works and an informative sentence about him, continued from one card of that type to the next. - Jess

    "Papa" Haydn is the composer and music director for Prince Nicholas, and it isn't an easy job. He has to keep all of the musicians in line and well practiced, repair any broken musical instruments, and constantly write new music to entertain the prince and his many various guests. When the prince goes to his summer home in Esterhaza, Haydn and all of the royal musicians must leave their families behind and diligently follow the prince. As the summer drags on, the musicians are homesick for their families. They complain to Haydn that their families should be allowed to come to Esterhaza. Haydn in turn talks to the prince, who becomes very angry at the impertinence of his subjects. There is nothing to do but wait until the summer is over. When summer ends and they are still in Esterhaza during the chill of November, Haydn knows it is time for a great deal of cleverness. When it comes time for the orchestra to play Haydn's newest symphony, will they be able to convey their feelings to the prince? This book features well-written text and large colorful pictures. - Melissa

    This book brings the culture and beauty of orchestra music to children by sharing the history of the art, describing the instruments involved, giving fun facts about different composers and music, and providing samples of the music on the accompanying CD. Orchestra Bob, a cartoon gentleman, is the guide through the book. The first half of the book tells about the different composers of orchestra music, and the second half describes the physical layout of an orchestra and the different instruments involved. The first half is broken into the Baroque, Classical Music, Romantic, and Modern Eras, highlighting famous composers from each time period. The book describes how this music became part of and affected each era and shows how each composer affected orchestra music. Orchestra Bob points out when to play certain tracks on the accompanying CD, which give famous samples of many of the composers' works. The book does a good job of highlighting the importance of each composer, but it does not give a thorough biography of each life, more of a general description of the way they affected the art and a list of their greatest works. Colorful text boxes, fun cartoon illustrations, and famous quotes make the book interesting and fun to read, and the music from the CD lets children connect the composers with their creations. The second half of the book covers the instruments themselves and is broken down into string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections, as well as keyboard instruments. Readers see an illustration of an orchestra and then go on to learn about the specific instruments involved. The book explains how each instrument is played, points out special features, and gives some details of each instrument's history and development. In this section, Orchestra Bob instructs readers to listen to special tracks on the CD which provide examples of the music made from featured instruments in actual works from different composers. He also points out how to listen for the different instruments that have been discussed. This section is as colorful and fun as the first, with actual photographs of each instrument covered. An index of composers and musical terms is included, as well as a list of the 41 musical selections on the CD (over an hour of music). It provides a great way to listen to the music of the orchestra while simultaneously learning about the history, instruments, and composers. ~ Rachel S.
