My kids are very musical and especially enjoy and appreciate classical music. This is a fun and enjoyable way to add culture, history of the arts and the magic of classical music into their world. I homeschool my kids, and we have enjoyed several activities from this book for our music appreciation segment ... I think it is a good buy for your activity library at home.
I am a middle school French/World Language teacher. Our 6th grade program allows our students to "sample" languages from across the globe: French, German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Arabic, and Hebrew. Part of our curriculum is also to highlight the history and culture of the countries that speak those languages. Music is part of culture and to introduce composers and their music, this book is ideal. Thanks so much!
