What did you like about the book? This is a book of opposites that introduces toddlers to all styles of music. The brightly colored collage-style illustrations depicting people of various ages and ethnicities perfectly complement the text. The author is not afraid to use less familiar words such as lo-fi and hi-fi, a cappela and instrumental, acoustic and electric. The final page gives definitions of some of these “Music Terms.” Musical families will enjoy this one.
