Make music with this hands-on introduction to the four instrument families – drums, horns, strings, and voice – in this board book series by a world-renowned music educator.

What do a choir, a rapper, and a yodeler all have in common? They all use voice to make music! This first introduction begins with a simple explanation of what defines a musical voice. Young readers are then invited on a global exploration of a variety of different vocal musicians, and then encouraged to use their voice in the world around them. Complete with a mirror for observing their own mouths!
