    I love saying "Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin", so, of course

    I love saying "Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin", so, of course, I love reading this book. Even if that particular phrase does not amuse you, there is still much to love about this book.
    It is a counting poem about musical instrument -- that should appeal to math-lovers, poetry-lovers and music-lovers. If you still aren't sold on this book, check out the frenetic and jazzy illustrations. Not only are they multi-national, they are multi-animaled. Pretty much, this book has universal appeal, and, as it is a Caldecott Honor Book, I am not alone in that assessment.

    Love it!

    We started reading "Zin Zin" when my son was about 2 1/2 and at 5 he still asks to read this one regularly. I never tire of it's skillfully crafted verse - it's a favorite!

    I really loved this book. The illustrations are phenomenal and added so much to the already wonderful text!

    I love how all of the instruments are described in such detail and how Moss gives all the instruments almost their own personalities. I also like how he compares the instruments and tells of how they are alike and then also tells of their differences. He also incorporates numbers into the book as each instrument is added. Until he reaches "a chamber group of ten." The text is also presented in a very elegant like rhyme and it is just a fun book to read aloud.
    Children will love the bright illustrations and enjoy the whimsical text and pictures!

    A Classic

    This is a great book to introduce your child to numbers and musical instruments. Scholastic also has this on certain DVD's or Insight Cable on Demand sometimes, with Marvin Hamlisch having done the arrangement. It's awesome!

    A great masterpiece!

    This book is a delightful story with beautiful illustrations. The story is a great way to introduce musical terms and instruments into a child's life. A book that will be worth reading over and over again.
