Day 3-The String Family in Harmony! Comment below.
Hey all music loving families out there. This colorful series brings instruments alive-literally. They're all named and anthropomorphized. Follow a literal "family" of instruments as they explore and explain the emotions in music, how harmony works and what instruments are made of. We all enjoyed this colorful, fun book by Trisha Speed Shaskan. It was enlightening and educational while still being lighthearted and entertaining.
