9780920668993: The Orchestra

...an intelligent book, neatly executed, and just insouciant enough to maintain adult interest
-- The Toronto Globe and Mail

The Orchestra, a non-fiction book for children, introduces musical instruments, basic musical concepts and the symphonic orchestra. The very straight-forward text is accompanied by playful, but accurate, drawings. A number of musical concepts are explored, among them harmony, tempo and dynamics. The role of the composer and conductor are explored and each musical instrument described. A subplot, apparent only through the illustrations, shows two children who wend their way through the orchestra's rehearsal, visiting the instrument families, and culminates in a full-dress concert.

Comprehensive, but simple in its approach, the book combines solid information with an enjoyable format.

About the Author:

Mark Rubin has produced a number of films and television shows for young children. Victor Feldbrill, conductor of the Toronto Symphony program for young children, has reviewed the text for accuracy.

Alan Daniel has illustrated a number of books, among them Flying and Swimming Creatures and The Bait Chopper.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4 --This Canadian import begins with a discussion of music and its elements, and then scrutinizes the instruments of the orchestra by categories: the strings, the brass, the woodwinds. A great deal of information is offered in a straightforward, well-organized manner. Most terms are clearly presented, though ``vibrate'' is used without real explanation. The bland tone of the prose makes the book mostly a collection of definitions related to the field. Daniel's colorful and somewhat whimsical illustrations, however, give it life. People of all kinds and ages are shown playing instruments; the message is that music is for everyone who wants to be involved, and their relaxed poses and dress communicate that it is fun. --Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
