Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Joanna Fabicon

"String, woodwind, keyboard, brass, and percussion instruments get the family treatment through the addition of multi-colored faces and arms on each (a technique that works better with clarinets and saxophones than the floating heads over pianos and drums) and an imagined position within the group. For example, in Keyboard, parents are a harpsichord and electric keyboard, and the children are a piano and a pipe organ. The books explain how members of the same family have different sounds but are played in similar ways. Along with brief overviews about how to play the instruments, sentences like “Max [tuba] burps out loud, low notes. Tiny [trumpet] screams. He can hit the highest notes. Slim’s [trombone] sound slides all over the place,” (Woodwinds) easily capture the music’s tone and/or mood. Useful books for a music-themed story time." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

Teacher Librarian Reviews

"Spoken from the point of view of the instrument, the French horn begins by introducing the family: tuba, trumpet, and trombone. Each then moves through the cleverly illustrated pages describing the instruments’ various parts. A brief glossary, index, Internet sites, and additional books complete the title." - Teacher Librarian Reviews
