Reviews - What do customers think about Jumbo Book of Music, The (Jumbo Books)?

Teachers and Homeschool Parents, Take Note!!!  Jul 14, 2001
This book would make a GREAT base for a thematic or unit study on music. This book appears to be geared to middle schoolers, but younger and older students will also enjoy it.

The thing I like best about this book is that it gets across the fact that music is for everyone, not just the rich and talented. EVERYONE will find something they can do in this book.

I wish every child from a low income family had access to this book.

This book covers an extremely wide spectrum of music. It changed how I viewed the word "music".

This book is on my top ten list of books for children. I can't recommend it enough.

Make and Strike Up the band!  Apr 24, 2001
As a teacher, I really enjoy using this book. The instrument making ideas are really do-able! You have many of the needed items around your house right now. The format is laid out in such a way that it's a pleasure to read and use. When you need a quick idea, something will usually jump out by just flipping through the pages. Suitable for children to use on their own, too. Good choice!
