LoveReading View on Listen and Learn Musical Instruments

This ingenious book is a clever way to introduce children to the many different types of instrument there are in the world.  Colour cards with bright, friendly illustrations feature nine different instruments on each side, grouped by type e.g. string instruments, instruments you blow into to make a sound. Slot the cards into the special holder, turn the switch on the back cover to on, and pressing the illustrations of the instruments produces a couple of notes or a short musical phrase. Children can compare the sound of a trombone with a didgeridoo, or a double bass with a viola or sarangi. It’s a marvel that this one small-ish book can demonstrate so many musical instruments and it’s certain to catch children’s imaginations.   ~ Andrea Reece


Listen and Learn Musical Instruments Synopsis

This ingenious book allows children to hear over 70 musical instruments from around the world. Simply take one of the 4 cards (each features 9 words and pictures on each side) out of the envelope and insert it into the slot as instructed. Press 'go' and then press a picture to hear how the instrument sounds.
