Yup. I am researching dance for a book I am writing on the music of the dance so thought I hadn't studied this book yet and ordered it. IT IS A CHILDREN'S BOOK. IT IS BRILLIANT! The inspiration of its authorship and the fabulous illustrations have captivated me. For all parents whose children love music, this will whet their appetites. Go on, play them the music too...I heartily recommend this book for adults to enjoy reading too.
