First it has a decent rhyme and teaches about different instruments and I like both reading and music. Just like in an orchestra, they have to stay precise. Also for young child this book will be fun to learn about all the different instruments if the young child has expressed an interest in music, or a parent is trying to influence a child's life. Reread as necessary to practice your performance. After that, the trumpet comes along, and the group became a duo.

Pretty soon, two becomes three and three becomes four until you have a whole orchestra playing. Featuring an engaging, poetic text Lloyd Moss has really captured the essence of each of the presented instruments with his delightful, fun onomatopoeic verses and combined with Marjorie Priceman's bright and lively, descriptive and to me dancing illustrations, I can certainly understand why and how Zin! I'd probably recommend this book.
I liked the effort for the rhyming text and the way the text was placed on the pages to simulate the flow of music. I could see using this book for a number talk or a unit in music and composition. The other thing I really got out of this book is a reminder of what each of those orchestra wind instruments is like. I was struck by a heavyset elderly dame: magnificent in this very energetic, professional element.

Oh, and I did love the illustrations. Each instrument has its own little poem but the illustrations help keep everything unified and I really enjoyed the end when the pieces all come together to create an encore-worthy performance. I really like that it starts with one musician, then another musician is added and another and another, so that each poem ends with solo, duo, trio, quartet, etc. So when I found it here in Virginia, I made sure to get it right away.

When this book begins, the trombone is playing all by itself. Then came the cello, then the violin, then the flute, then the clarinet, then the oboe, and then the bassoon all coming in one at a time making new groups all the to a nontet.

LeVar introduces the viewers to a group of gifted people who have great rhythm. As you read pay attention to how the author used words and phrases to create rhythm and rhyme. When the full orchestra is introduced, they play their songs, and after that they bow. Jazz and country are not among my favourite musical genres but preferred to rap and outrageously heavy metal!
