Sounds Good!: Discover 50 Instruments

We rated this book:


Youngsters are curious about music and musical instruments, but will they be content reading about instruments and looking at pictures of them? That is probably not going to be a very satisfying experience for kids. What they really want to know is what sounds the instruments make. Sure, they could take the time to research each instrument and try to find some examples of the sounds, but that is a bit daunting, and the kids might get really tired of having to go through all that.

Ole and Hans Könnecke have found a way around that. They have chosen fifty-two instruments to feature in this fun book. Ole wrote the text and did the cute illustrations of the instruments being played by a variety of cartoonish animals. Young readers will get a kick out of these clever illustrations. Hans composed a musical piece for each of the instruments that readers can listen to simply by scanning the QR code on each spread with a tablet or smartphone.

This book really brings learning about musical instruments to a whole new level. This will become a favorite not only of young readers but parents and teachers as well.
