Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Easy to use and filled with many great 'why didn't I think of that' ideas. The piggyback chant and song activities are dynamic and lend themselves equally well for use by the beginner, as well as, the veteran searching for fun and innovative ways to incorporate music/instruments into their daily curriculum. This book is a must-have resource for any early childhood classroom teacher or music teacher/therapist." - Stephen Fite, musician and President of Melody House

"What fun! Abigail Flesch Connors' 101 Rhythm Instrument Activities for Young Children offers teachers and children a wonderful alternative to experiencing music through singing alone. The movement, rhythm, and creativity emphasized in this book are essential to the early childhood experience -- and that's only the start of what children learn from these clever activities." - Rae Pica, Author of Teachable Transitions and Wiggle, Giggle, and Shake

I have been using this book for several years in my preschool and pre-K music classes. It has given me many ideas for using rhythm instruments in my classes.

This book is OK, not so much for music teachers. It could be useful for classroom teachers. I bought it expecting more application for my music classroom with 3 & 4 year olds in the preschool use.

I first found this book at the local library. I have checked it out so many times that I decided to add it to my personal library! The introductions to rhythm instruments are wonderful for my 3 and 4 year old preschool music classes. This book goes way beyond your everyday rhythm stick beat. I can't say enough about it!
