Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My three-year old grandson is very interested in the orchestral instruments. This book has clear photos and illustrations of the instruments. It shows how the musician holds the instrument. The CD provides the sound of each instrument as well as musical selections that highlight that instrument. Well-worth the money!
