Review quotes

"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!"—— Children's Literature
