5 Stars Out Of 5
Give your children a LOVE for great music!
October 9, 2012
I saw the Opal Wheeler books recommended on a Charlotte Mason website and my interest was piqued. I had been looking for a way to incorporate a little more music appreciation into our homeschooling. It WELL exceeded my expectations. My boys (6yo and 9yo) loved this book. We read a chapter a week, stretching it out to about a 6 week "study". I say study, but there was nothing laborious about it at all -- pure joy. Such a delightful book, and the music was so well selected. Can you imagine my rough-and-tumble boys going around whistling Bach's tunes? The music is infectious! (Definitely buy the corresponding CD with the book!) They are now well acquainted with Bach and we all think of him as an old friend. And his music is familiar to us all. What a happy way to learn. : ) We are on to Mozart next, and I'm looking forward to many more Opal Wheeler books in the years ahead.
