What are MUSICTALES?
MUSICTALES are first and foremost great children's picturebooks!
But more than that, MUSICTALES are children's storybooks with written music as an integral component of the text. Each book will include:
You do NOT have to read music to benefit from this feature! The intent is to
GIVE your child the opportunity to see written music. Your child learns to read words
because he or she is naturally curious and wants to know what written words MEAN. These books are meant to give she or he the same curiousity about MUSIC!
PARENTS can encourage their child to read music and how
TEACHERS can use the book in their classrooms.
