Kindergarten-Grade 3-Slim series entries that provide basic information. In each book, two-page spreads address different aspects of the instrument, or instruments in the case of Drums. A full-color photograph faces each descriptive paragraph in large type. On a textual level, these titles succeed as accessible introductions for young readers. Unfortunately, they are not as successful visually. On occasion, there is a disparity between what is described and the accompanying photographs. In Clarinets, a discussion of the kinds of clarinets is teamed with a musician's view of the instrument's bell. The final spread in Drums shows a photograph of the various types of instruments, but only the kettledrum is mentioned on the opposite page. Trumpets seems to avoid this problem for the most part, except for a final spread pairing pictures of "Other Brass Instruments" with a written invitation for children to take up the trumpet. In addition, the captions are often too generalized, misleading, or incomplete. In spite of occasional problems with the illustrative matter, these books will be appropriate for collections where simply written introductions to single instruments are needed.
