Six lively spreads simplifying the seemingly complicated laws and language of music. Children start to make music from a very early age, so by the time they are 6 or 7 they are ready to grapple with notation. In fact the reader of this book can open it with no knowledge of musical notation and close it with a real understanding of music on the page. An entertaining and absorbing read with ingenious pop-ups and moving parts. This book will launch you into a musical world.

By the creators of The Terrific Times Tables Book and The Great Grammar Book, The Magnificent I Can Read Music Book is great fun to play with. Full of tabs and flaps it makes the complicated business of learning to read music seem like a game. It is jam-packed with vital information, given in speech bubbles by animal characters such as the cat and her smiling kittens who chorus 'The distance between low C and high C is called an octave. Play them both.' Starting with some simple rhythms to be jiggled to by the pull-up characters and ending with a tiny keyboard and a musical cat pointing out the notes with its tail, it covers the musical alphabet, the length of notes, time signatures and even introduces a few sharps and flats. As background information to learning the clever interactivity is fun to absorb but it may not make complete mastery of reading music very much easier. (Age 7 and over) -- Julia EccleshareReview:
"A fantastic interactive guide . . . the quality of the pop-ups is excellent" (The Bookseller)
