    I looked at this book with one of my practicum tutees today. I thought we would only look at a couple pages, but she was interested enough to flip through the rest of the book with me. We didn't read most of it, but we enjoyed looking at all the instruments and reading captions when we had questions or wanted to know more.

    I enjoyed the amount of information this book included along with visuals to go along with the facts. I have always had a at interest in music and all types of instruments. This book went into great detail about not only the history of music and the instruments, but also the construction and science behind the instruments. Very information and still fun for kids.

    I thought this was a very informative book and it had some very interesting facts. However, I thought it was a little too complex in its explanations of how different instruments work. I was a little lost on what some of the things meant. However, I thought the historical information about the origins of certain instruments was very fascinating. A very informative book.

    SUCH a fun book. It's particularly interesting to keep YouTube open while reading it so you can check out the different (exotic) instruments in action. It was a nice break from the heavier books I normally read.

    You can't beat a DK Eyewitness book to encourage questions from children. It has pictures of lots of different instruments, shows how violins are built, and some history on the progression of instruments.

    "The world of music is a kaleidoscope of sound." DK Eyewitness's Music starts out by explaining the fundamentals of music, in particular, the science of it and how we can hear the sounds and vibrations through sound waves. The book then goes on to explain nearly every group, instrument, and technique there is in the world of music. Illustrated with photographic images of each concept and instrument, the book paints a vivid image of the elements of music. I gave this book four stars.

This was kind of a personal thing to be honest, because I just am not that interested in music or instruments. I didn't like that there was no conclusion to the book, and a very quick beginning as well. However, the book had heaps of interesting information for someone interested in learning about music and provided excellent imagery to connect to the text. It reminded me of when I was in elementary school and learning how to play an instrument. I played the flute for a few years, and that's what I flashed back to when I was reading this. Although I was somewhat bored because there was no narrative, I could still appreciate how much knowledge the book contained and how that would be useful for children in music classes to learn about.
