Bought and downloaded the Nookcolor Read to Me edition. Disappointed that for almost $4 more than the hardcover edition, it only has narration, no orchestral voices in the background. Pretty much a waste of money.

Had this book when I was a child! Although I don't remember it right now, I remember I valued it as a child and I bought it for my son today. CAN'T WAIT to receive my order!

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.

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!
