From Library Journal
Most of the hot topics concerning kids and music are genially addressed in this guide: generating enthusiasm, choosing an instrument, realizing the most from lessons, practicing (or lack thereof), broadening general musical knowledge, keeping the momentum, and more. Many of the suggestions are good, and the values stressed-both musical and otherwise-are admirable. Still, even parents with little musical background might find this book a bit simplistic. Much of the information presented is good common sense, and a more in-depth approach and concise writing style might have enhanced the book's effectiveness. Also, the decidedly religious tone-including biblical quotations-might limit the book's appeal on a broader level. Recommended for public libraries with no resource on the topic currently available.
