Review

AlphaBasiCs is just what it appears to be. . . a series of alphabet books based on those subjects which interest young children. Such books encourage kids to let their imaginations soar. . . and to design their own alphabet books -- Brandon Sun, Dec. 28, 1997

One of the best books for children on musical instruments I've seen -- K. Dalby, Roberts Park School, Norfolk, Virginia --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Taken from Chapter 4: Drum D is for something you hit with your hands or sticks. It helps keep the beat of music. Native People say it sounds like the heartbeat of Mother Earth. In the past, people sent long-distance messages by playing it loud. Did you guess that D is for drum? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Musical Instruments From A to Z is a wonderfully eclectic alphabet book. The choice of instruments runs the gamut from the ordinary; guitar, clarinet, drum, to the unique and unusual; ch'ing, alpenhorn, and zeze. The choice of instruments for each letter is sometimes just what you would think; D is for drum, S is for stringed instruments, and sometimes it just keeps you guessing; A is for harp, or "Angel music", E and F are for guitar, "electric" of course that you play with your "fingers". In keeping with this varied format the illustrations are a wonderful combination of photographs of adults and children, illustrations, and paintings, sure to keep any child amused and entertained.

I teach pre-school so I'm always looking for interesting ways to help the children in my class learn their alphabet. I have in the past bought a few books with the a-z theme and the kids love it. This book is completely ridiculous, they do not provide an instrument for each letter of the alphabet and was a waste of money. For the letter "i" they just give you instruments. Really? Letter "m" is for music. Letter "j" is for jamming at the jamboree. What instrument is that? I get that "e" is for electric guitar, but really that you play with fingers for the letter "f". If you are looking for a book that gives you a word for each letter of the alphabet on a theme this is not the book. The title is very misleading.

I teach music and found this to be Nothing spectacular, but does the job. Pictures are nice, but in thinking about it. I would love to have a demo of the sound each instrument makes. SO, I'll keep looking.
