Reviews

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!)
