School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K Up-- Like Go in and out the Window (Metropolitan Museum of Art/Holt, 1987), this title features traditional American songs and full-color reproductions of museum art works. The Metropolitan's offering has a broader approach, however, balancing the presentation of music and art and offering paragraphs of relevant, cultural information. This book is simply a beautifully illustrated collection of 55 songs. In both cases, the art works appropriately and eloquently expand on the meaning of the lyrics. Identifying illustrations is easier in the Metropolitan title since they are listed by page number in order of appearance. The two volumes share about a third of the same selections. Go in and out . . . includes more specifically children's songs and offers a somewhat wider variety; its guitar and piano accompaniments are slightly better for beginning musicians since there are fewer chord changes and the musical repeats are written out. An Illustrated Treasury . . . includes more seasonal and patriotic numbers. Since its pages are large and repeats are not written out, musicians have the convenience of playing without having to turn pages. --Cynthia Bishop, Onondaga County Public Library, Syracuse, NY
