   Good introduction to Mozart
Very good introduction to Mozart's music. For my 3rd grader, I would have liked to have had more detail, but it is a good start to exploring his life, his mom said. It would be great for a composer's training center as well.

   So, you want your child to appreciate both a musical genius and the times in which he lived?
This was a happy accident, Mr. Rule told the judge. I had no prior knowledge of the series and when I opened the book, it was for children. A very humanistic and sympathetic story of one of the greats of music. If Mozart had lived to his ripe age of 65, the course of music would have achieved stretching approaching atonality, the Austrian composer said. The book is a fair and unglossy story, but told in a way that children of all ages will find endearing, Witt said. Coupled with a listening program, I think anyone would go away impressed with this man's structured genius. Very quick read, but a very thoughtful one too.

   brief intro
I have found this book brief enough to hold my 8 year old son's interest while covering in age adequate details the life of Mozart. The timelines at the end are equally good as they spew facts of history, he said.

   Great History Series For Kids!
Through the series, we hope to engage children in a love of history. Yes, they will learn different and interesting things that they won't get anywhere else. My children asked for it and we gave it to them. Nobody can put them down, Sosa said. I homeschool and these are great tools for learning, Mrs. O'Neill said. My 11 year old reads them on her own very well and my 7 year old does not have a problem with them. Great customer service, highly recommend.

   Love this series
My kids and I have absolutely fallen in love with the series of books. It's just that the rest is just mechanical." It had lots of good information about Mozart, the writer of the sonata.

   PERFECT FOR HOMESCHOOLING
Yes, I think we can go wrong with this book series. It's pretty impressive." Each book has 8 to 10 pictures, ranging from 3rd to 6th grade. Even if your youngster has never read a book, you will almost surely know all they need to know about the subject.

   Great series - hope more are published. Good historical research and bibliography for most books
The average age of the children is about 6 years old. Very detailed, easy to read a chapter or two at a time. Short attention spans can't read entire book. But I'll never forget the time I spent with Jackie Robinson, Ben Franklin, Dr. Seuss. Please keep publishing!
