About the Author:

Kathy-jo Wargin is the author of more than 30 books for children, including The Legend of Sleeping Bear. Her many awards include an IRA Children's Choice Award for The Legend of the Loon and an IRA Teacher's Choice Award for Win One for the Gipper. Kathy-jo lives in Minnetonka, Minnesota.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 - This musical survey saunters through the alphabet to define a wide variety of terms, instruments, and techniques. Each spread features a rhymed four- or eight-line verse to introduce a word, with the opposite page giving a short definition and examples. Some letters introduce two words: "C is for Conductors" and "Composer" and "D is for Drum majors" and "Dynamic." The verses are appealing, although at times the meter is awkward. Overall, though, the author successfully introduces a wealth of information without overwhelming readers. The watercolor artwork is serviceable but does not approach the imaginative illustrations that dance across the pages of Aliki's Ah, Music! (HarperCollins, 2003) or Kathleen Krull's M Is for Music (Harcourt, 2003), the latter using the same alphabetical approach to the subject. For larger collections. - Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
