Jill Bennett has written a fantastic review of The Flute for her blog Red Reading Hub! The Flute is the second part in our series Children Music Life by Ken Wilson-Max and Catell Ronca, which introduces young children to the joy of music. Read the fab review below!
The second in the Children Music Life series showcases a reedless woodwind instrument, the flute. Here flautists from different parts of the world come together to celebrate its magic. It’s a colourful magic that conjures up mellow sounds…
and bright ones; that sometimes speaks very softly …
or blows icily.
It might be a scream of pink, a sigh of lilac that is …
The voice through which the flutes speak is pure poetry; now why not try to discover its sounds for yourself … Where will it take you? What will you hear and see: how will you feel?
With rainbow bright illustrations from Catell Ronca and Ken Wilson-Max’s poetic words, prepare to be transported and perhaps to dance with your little one like some of the characters herein. Through music is a wonderful way to introduce very young children to stories: this little treasure of a book will help you do just that.
