Reviews

(…) With 12 very easy yet surprisingly musical pieces, all titled to capture the imagination (Funky Street, Big Chief Sitting Bull, Marvo the Wondrous Magician, The Ogre from the Big Black Rock) and illustrated witl1 cartoons in black and white, these miniatures will make any child want to play them. The cartoons can be downloaded at no cost for young children to color. And in the process, of course, they will be learning basic simple time rhythms, musical notations and dynamic instructions, tempo and style indicators (Mysteriously, Gentle ticking, Menacing, with attitude), articulation variations, accidentals, and instructions for repeat signs, DS, and Coda. (...) Having used several other James Rae books with students, l've always found them thoughtfully conceived as well as beautifully produced by Universal. (…)
