Poems are folded into this luxurious picture book about Chinese musical instruments. The poems are carried by the narrative of children learning and practicing their instruments in preparation for a concert. Information about each instrument is included on the border of each page. Beautifully designed and elegantly illustrated, this is a very enjoyable book that combines poems, pictures, and history.

A beautiful book about musical instruments most people have never experienced. Young children will enjoy the pictures and poetry and older children and adults with an interest in music will appreciate the very detailed descriptions and history of each instrument. Watch the video to hear them in action!
