Review of "An Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments," by Claire Llewellyn

 Review of

An Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments, by Claire Llewellyn ISBN 0763567426

Five out of five stars

A great introduction to the various types of musical instruments

At 20.5 inches by 14.5 inches, this book would be difficult for the youngest of readers to manipulate well enough to read it by themselves. However, it would be an excellent choice for a large reading circle where one person is reading it to a large group of children. The text is large enough so that it could easily be read by children several feet away.

 This is an excellent book for children in the early years of elementary school when they are beginning to learn about music and how it is made. The text is large, and the images are in color and very well defined. It is ideal for an instructor to read to the entire class and so teach them the names of the most common instruments as well as some that are not as well known. For each type of instrument, there is an explanation of the mechanism whereby the music is made.

 This is an inexpensive and effective way to teach children about musical instruments and how they work.
