Book Overview

Using one of the most famous works in classical music--Beethoven's Fifth Symphony--here is the perfect way to introduce a young child to the world of classical music. This charming and interactive picture book with its panel of 19 sound buttons is like a ticket to a concert hall, taking readers on a journey from the exciting first moment when the musicians begin tuning up to the end of the first movement (attention newcomers: don't clap yet ). At each step of the way, readers learn the basics of classical music and the orchestra: What is a conductor? What is a symphony? Who was Beethoven? The different aspects of music: melody, harmony, tempo, theme. And the families of instruments--strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.

But the best part is that every critical idea is illustrated in gorgeous sound. The sound panel allows readers to hear the different parts of the symphony and voices of the music--the famous beginning of the Fifth, what a clarinet sounds like, the difference between a violin and a viola, what a melody is, and what harmony is. Kids will want to match their voices to the A note that tunes the orchestra, dance to the rhythmic passages--and, of course, sing along to da-da-da-daah

   Buttons! But poor quality audio.
My 3yo absolutely loves it. I think PeopleSoft customers deserve better customer service, Ellison said. Buttons! The quality of the music is generally considered to be below par. The audio bits are also quite short, and you miss a lot of the song. I would recommend this book on it's own if you're just looking for a fun book with buttons, or in conjunction with a book with CD - My First Classical Music Book, for example. It's great for families with small children, said Sara Fields, director of marketing for the Children's Museum of Baltimore.

   Eight-year-old truly captured by this well put together book.
This book is a great introduction to the symphony orchestra and its instruments. I gave it to my 8 year old nephew and he was thrilled with how the books worked with the recorded examples that he could touch-n-play with, Mrs. Pearson said. As a music teacher for over 42 years, I was glad there was a tool like this available.

   This is a wonderful book for children to learn all about music--from terms
This is a wonderful book for children to learn all about music--from terms, to how an orchestra is put together and what it sounds like. My son, who is 16, said he thought it was great. I highly recommend this for any child who is musically interested or is taking lessons.

   Wonderful -- more books like this, please!
I've read it twice. Even with a few more options to hear the orchestra play together, and also a button to adjust the volume, I would recommend it.

   Great Musical Education Interactive Book
Buttons with sounds make it very interactive and even fun for the youngest readers. Young musicians could use the equipment in a classroom setting. Simply put, you can use as young as 0 with supervision and just focus on pictures and sounds, and continue to read more as the reader got older. There are facts, narration and instrument identification which means you can read it multiple ways and focus on different narratives or facts.

   Great Book, a bit Damaged- bad packing
The other two corners were damaged. It was a birthday gift for my granddaughter, and had a time-frame in which to get it to her, Melissa said. The damage did not prevent the book from playing the sounds, but it was only on the two corners. Amazon can and does better than this, but it was disheartening to see that the book had no integrity for a gift. For the book itself, I would recommend it to anyone.

   Defective
I glued it back with hot glue, Criss said. It's great to be back home, said Paul LiCalsi, director of product development at NatSemi.

   Good read.
It goes through each section of a symphony, and you can push the corresponding button to hear a sample.

   This book is amazing! It’s funny and silly with the mice
I have never met a book that was so good. It's funny and silly with the mice, and also teaches about classical music -- and I love that you can hear what they are saying with the sound buttons." My daughter absolutely loves sound books. She was very pleased with the book, said Barbara Comstock, executive director of the Friends of Animals. It has great quality information, said Dr. Elizabeth Dhaliwal, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
