Music Everywhere!

Reviewed by:

Beautiful, full-page, colour photographs of children from every part of the world show us that music is universal, is made in many ways, and by all cultures, through humming, clapping, singing, strumming plucking, striking and blowing into a variety of instruments. The camera has captured the charming faces of many children as they express a range of emotions – devoted, joyful, serious, intrigued, playful, concentrated – all in the pursuit of making and enjoying their music. This delightful picture book celebrates the diversity, universality, and the unifying force that music has to bring different cultures together in a meaningful way.
