"The Music Pack" describes the development of music over the centuries in the same interactive, three-dimensional form of the previous book in the series, "The Art Pack". With ingenious pop-ups and pull-outs, the book begins by analyzing how different sounds are created by the human voice. The different kinds of instrument are then described and illustrated, often with real paper versions you can play, and pop-ups of various instruments so you can get a three-dimensional idea of how they look and work (an upright piano, a cello, etc). Music from the earliest times through to the huge variety of 20th-century musical styles is covered in an entertaining and informative way: a whole pop-up orchestra shows how the various sections are arranged; a world music map shows in turn where each music style occurs; two separate booklets with a glossary of music words and a commentary on the 20 masterpieces which are recorded on the CD - by Handel, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach and so on - complete this listening and reading experience.
