A collection of clear instructions for building six different instruments, including a Wrench Xylophone and a Singing Sitar, from common household items will help children learn to truly make their own music.

Gr. 3^-5. This striking guide to making six imaginative musical instruments is better written and illustrated than many similar how-to books. It begins with a clear, concise introduction to wood, string, and percussion instruments followed by simple directions for such projects as a balloon tom-tom and a singing sitar. Although many of the supplies are easy to find, others, like wrenches and crowbars, may be another story. The pictures accompanying the instructions are clean, distinctly lined, and set against crisp white space. In a nice contrast, the handsome full-page watercolors of children of different races (sometimes younger than the target audience) playing the finished pieces have a softer focus. All in all, a neat book. Julie Corsaro
