Product Description

Amazon Review

By the creators of The Terrific Times Tables Book and The Great Grammar Book, The Magnificent I Can Read Music Book is great fun to play with. Full of tabs and flaps it makes the complicated business of learning to read music seem like a game. It is jam-packed with vital information, given in speech bubbles by animal characters such as the cat and her smiling kittens who chorus 'The distance between low C and high C is called an octave. Play them both.' Starting with some simple rhythms to be jiggled to by the pull-up characters and ending with a tiny keyboard and a musical cat pointing out the notes with its tail, it covers the musical alphabet, the length of notes, time signatures and even introduces a few sharps and flats. As background information to learning the clever interactivity is fun to absorb but it may not make complete mastery of reading music very much easier. (Age 7 and over) -- Julia Eccleshare

Review

LOVED by children and adults alike - so much fun had by everyone, and kept the kids occupied with pulling and popping and pushing for hours. All these books have made brilliant, much welcomed presents for friends' children - AND they're educational - hurray

This is a lovely book. It's beautiful, entertaining and educational, but

I bought it for my daughter for last christmas and was dissappointed to find the batteries for the keyboard in the back of the book didn't work. We managed to find replacement batteries and it still doesn't work properly as the batteries that were included in the book had corroded ...

So, when buying the book, make sure you buy a new book that hasn't been sitting arround for a long time.

Not sure about this book. I brought it along with a recorder and another simpler reading music book for children. Out of the two books my son (6) found the other one much easier to understand. Whilst he enjoyed this book and we still look through it (he loves pulling all the tabs) I think he has learnt more about reading music from the other book. Each page of this book is packed full of information perhaps a little too busy? Whilst this book makes a good accompaniment I'm glad I brought another book too.

These pop up books are fantastic. So much information given in small manageable 'bites' - super value but use carefully with young children as they get so excited about all the 'bits' to lift/pull/turn
