Author/artist Aliki shares her love of music with children in a book that provides an enthusiastic overview of many facets of this art form. What is music? How is it written and performed? How does it differ from place to place? How has it changed over time? There is a wealth of general information, as well as quite a few specifics, packed into this engaging volume that can serve as a starting point for further discovery. The illustrations include factual interpretations of each aspect of music that is examined, while lighthearted, cartoonlike asides capture the joy that music can be and can bring. (Ages 5–9)
