This Is Music: Horns

by Rekha S Rajan (Author) Tania Yakunova (Illustrator)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Make music with this hands-on introduction to the four instrument families: drums, horns, strings, and voice in this new board book series by a world-renown music educator. What do a trumpet, a tuba, and a conch shell have in common? They are all horns! This first introduction to instruments in the horn family begins with a simple explanation of what defines a horn. Young readers are then invited on a global exploration of a variety of brass and wind instruments and are encouraged to find horns of their own in the world around them. Each title in the THIS IS MUSIC series features an interactive novelty musical element that invites the reader to play the book!
