I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Kids today are online at a very young age. With so much information at their supervised fingertips, there is such a wealth of learning materials for the searching. James Rhodes does a fantastic job by creating an interactive online experience that teaches kids about the early masters of music that are responsible for bringing music to the world.
I won’t go into details regarding the app or online connection but I will discuss the book. If you want to know more about this online interaction, then pick up the book and give it a whirl! 🙂
The book is large, and its pages are filled with lots of reading material accompanied by illustrations to compliment the information. Martin O’Neill made his artwork captivating and bright to offer a visual learning experience that is both fascinating and engaging. The huge amount of knowledge shared with young readers between the book’s pages is wonderful and perfect for the junior reader, around ages seven to ten. I would suggest for younger readers that they read with a parent so that things they may not understand can be explained. Also, there is that the online connection I mentioned earlier, that will help. For older readers that struggle with reading, this book would be ideal.
Although James Rhodes chooses only a handful of masters he explains that there are others who influenced the development of music throughout the ages. This is a popular topic and one that every child should experience to understand where their favorite music comes from, how the classics started it all.
I love this book, and think all schools should have this book included in their libraries. It provides an abundance of learning materials in an engaging format that could make the learning experience easier and create a willingness to want to learn more.
