When I first saw the book, “My First Classical Music” by Genevieve Helsby and Jason Chapman I snapped it right up. It’s a great book for elementary music students. If you happen to be a music teacher with an iPad, you might want to opt for the app instead.
The book comes with a cd, so all of the music and sounds of instruments are there, but, in my opinion, it was a stroke of genius to turn this particular book into an app. Most kids will enjoy all of the moving, talking, sound making pictures. Still, there is something to be said for reading at your own pace, holding a real book in your hands, turning pages…..
Since I decided to buy the app, my copy of the book, with cd is now part of the retirement sale. I thought it was a bargain when I bought it new at $13.00. Selling for $10, which includes the cd and shipping.
