The award-winning author-illustrator masterfully introduces young readers to all aspects of music with this stylish, witty, and meticulously researched guide, which can inspire them to consider how much music shapes their lives and the world.
From the Publisher:

What is Music?

Music is rhythm.
Music is melody.
Music is feeling...

and oh, so much more.

In this richly layered compendium, Aliki shares her keen insight about music and all its themes and variations. Ah, Music! is about composers and instruments. It's about artists and performers. It's about history -- from the earliest music through classical, modern, jazz, and popular times. It's about diversity and pleasure.

If you have a love of music in your bones, or if you are just learning, or if you are about to play in your first recital, it's about you. Ah, music!

Annotation:
This celebration of all things musical introduces readers to the different styles of music (classical, jazz, etc.), the history of music, and definitions of such musical terms as rhythm and volume. Colorful, cartoon-style illustrations accompany the text.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"There is something here for everyone, from the youngest fans of the simplest melody, to older children looking for a starting point for research, to anyone interested in finding out more about a favorite art form." 04/01/2003

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[T]here are a lot of enticing tidbits invitingly packaged here, making this browsable and unintimidating, and the juxtaposition of historical overview and discussion of the reader's own musical exploits makes an understated but bolstering point about context and tradition." - Deborah Stevenson September 2003
