In association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Now the best-selling series "Can You Find It?" in a great new format!
Similar to Abrams best-selling series, "Can You Find It?," in this book, young readers are introduced to great music through great works of art. From "The Flight of the Bumblee" to "The Four Seasons" to "Night on Bald Mountain," beloved music is illustrated by great works of art, and the text and accompanying CD urge young readers to listen for certain instruments. Can you hear the car horns honking, played by clarinets? Can you hear the horses' hooves, played by castanets? When each CD track is played, young readers will stop, look, and listen as never before.
Classical music is filled with unforgettable images. In this book, great examples of pictorial music are matched to masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for an introduction to both music and art appreciation for young listeners. Included is a CD featuring 12 short works and an introduction to the orchestra and the instruments.
William Lach is a Senior Editor at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with more than eight years experience working on award-winning publications. He received his BA in English from Boston College. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, daughter, and son.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my son loves it! I bought this book for my 4 year old who is very interested in Classical music and he loves it. The book is very easy to follow-track 1 is on one page, track 2 on the next. Seems obvious but a lot of books are not as usable. The art is wonderful and it provides some context. The one issue is that there are 3 pieces from Saint-Saëns: Carnival of the Animals and 3 from Vivaldi-the Four Seasons. I would have preferred more composers being featured but since this is a book focusing on art, it's not such a big deal. I'm also buying this book for his preschool class because they used it one day and the kids loved it (Flight of the Bumblebee!)
