Music Everywhere! - Maya Ajmera, Elise Hofer Derstine, Cynthia Pon

Imagine for a moment your favorite instrument or style of music. How does it sound? What emotions does it evoke? Take another moment to remember that there is Music Everywhere! (Charlesbridge, $7.95), and join Maya Ajmera, Elise Hofer Derstine, and Cynthia Pon on a tour of culture, sound, and pure joy. Though the instruments of Indonesia and Venezuela may be different and the beats of Ghana and France unique, all children clap, sing, pluck, rattle, and scrape, and ultimately find refuge in the comfort that their music brings. “Music has many moods.” It brings people together from the United Kingdom to Timor-Leste; it is a language that we can all understand. Ages 4-8. Allison Trotter
