    Animal Orchestra...A great way to introduce children to Instumentation

    My grandchildren have a band teacher for a mom and this book helped them learn the orchestra instruments. Bright, colorful illustrations are captivating and the instrumentalist are animals. Well done book for youngsters.

    Loved it as a child

    I am thrilled that this book came back into print. I loved and recited it as a child. I wanted to get it for my kids, but it was out of print. My sister bought 3 copies for me when it came back into print. It's a great book!
