Tunes and nursery rhymes from all over the world are included in this illustrated book, alongside classical pieces from the world's finest composers, including J.S. Bach, Thomas Morley and Franz Schubert. Snippets of information about the origins of each tune on the borders of each page aim to give children a more intuitive feel for the music and advise them on timing. The Usborne Quicklinks site provides downloadable files so that children can listen to the tunes on their computer.
