Music is all around us. Opening the musical realm to children and relating it to nature gives them a more expansive way to learn and increases awareness of the world we share with other creatures.
This is a story about a little dog, Scherzo, who has a great desire to sing. Despite the lack of encouragement from his family, he pursues his dream and gains encouragement and support from a friendly music teacher. On the way to the story's happy ending Scherzo learns some valuable lessons from his animal friends during his adventure into the "magic" of music.
If a child is musical and loves animals, this humorous book will educate and inspire while providing an intuitive understanding of musical terminology. The animal illustrations describing musical terms not only intrigue children but give them a sense of what the terms mean even when the language is foreign.
Scherzo is printed on eye-friendly 70# acid-free white paper, and the 23 oil paintings by the author are engaging, humorous, and educational. This is a perfect book for little ones and their grown-ups to share, and a wonderful way of introducing young people to musical words and helping them look forward to learning and loving music even more.
