Children sing, learn about dance, and about the different kinds of musical instrument, each with its own distinct voice. They also find out about the fundamentals of music notation, and they learn the difference between happy and sad music. Vividly illustrated books for early-grades boys and girls, books in the What is Art? series introduce the arts and present the kind of instructive information that will make kids want to participate in the arts. The books suggest activities that will help kids understand the arts by doing and performing. The text asks children simple questions, but there are no wrong answers. The questions simply help children recognize and understand their own artistic preferences and aptitudes. Teachers will love these books as sources for classroom activities, and parents will also welcome them as a way to get kids started on art activities at home. Both English and Spanish editions of these titles are available.
