This gorgeously illustrated transcultural children's book is deceptively complex from the broadly represented genders and ethnicities in the illustrations to the universality of music's broad reach across hemispheres and centuries. Each double-page spread focuses on one child musician and his or her musical experience and individual instrument. In few words and sparse but glowing illustrations this title describes 15 Chinese musical instruments ~ their history, pronunciation, and legends ~ and the children playing them in preparation for symphony performance.
