MEDIA REVIEWS
'Music with the Under Fours does what a good text should - it both informs and provokes ... the book abounds with crucial messages to guide early years music teacher preparation.' - Lori A. Custodero, Columbia University, USA

'This book fills a need for an understanding of music with the under-fours grounded in what children actually do musically. We need to observe them initiating, inventing and responding to music.
