A wonderful way to involve kids in multicultural musical traditions!
This unique book/audio package lets children sing and play songs from around the world by making their own musical instruments. The book includes easy-to-follow instructions for making and playing 10 percussion instruments by using recycled, everyday items. The book is full of close-up photos to help mak and play the instruments. Each instrument project includes background information on its culture of origin, activities and games involving the instrument, a suggested reading list for more information on the culture, and a song to play with the instrument. The delightful accompanying recording features traditional songs so kids can play and sing along.
