Reviews

This is an adorable hardcover book that details what a flute is and what context it is played in The pictures are wonderfully done and do not take up too much room on the page, allowing for a good balance of text and picture There is also a link to recordings that go along with this book, and they are described in detail in the back. A wonderful way to introduce the flute to young children!
Childrens Literature
[A] delightful book For any child interested in music, this is a great read, and the book could be useful for children who are considering playing the flute. By blending narrative storytelling and facts, Auld helps readers develop an appreciation for flutes and other woodwind instruments while seeing the hard work playing an instrument involves. The illustrations feature a diverse representation of music lovers. Callouts in the text to accompanying performances from the London Symphony Orchestra bring the music to life. This informative book about flutes can educate children about one specific musical instrument while providing a glimpse into other instruments that are part of an orchestra.
