Waterstones Says

From the harpsichords of seventeenth-century England to Charlie Parker's saxophone, this charming book will take children on a fascinating tour of musical history, with the help of vibrant illustrations and buttons to press for samples.

The Guardian Best Children's Books of 2022

Press the buttons to hear the music in this time-travelling journey around the world, as young readers embark on a magical adventure through the history of music!

Stopping off at 10 key chronologically organised moments in history, in different places around the world, readers meet a great musician in each, and can press their instruments to hear a clip of their musical masterpieces! From 1600s England, where you can hear the harpsichord play Greensleeves, to 18th Century Munich, where you can hear Mozart's piano sonata, to a classical Indian raga in 1700s Udaipur, to New York in the 1940s, where readers can press Charlie Parker's saxophone to hear bebop Jazz, this book will teach children about cultural history, famous musicians and musical genres all while wanting to press the buttons and hear the music again and again.

Each musician tells you about where they live, how their music was inspired, and what it means to them, teaching children about the origins of these most magical melodies.A great playtime or bedtime read, complete with a soundtrack that tracks key moments in musical history, children will love to listen to the most beautiful and important, genre defining bars of music time and time again.

“LTTM”

I think this book is a very fun idea for exposing kids to music/music from around the world! I think music is a great tool for children and I know how important singing and story time is for young kids.
