This captivating and interactive biography contains a lot of fascinating information about the life, times, and music of composer Ludwig von Beethoven. The 21 creative activities the book includes will certainly engage the reader in the subject matter.
Teaching history with activities engages readers in new ways. Music lovers, music history buffs, home school parents, and school libraries will find this book particularly valuable.
I wish the book included a CD featuring some of Beethoven's music.
The youngster paged through the book but wasnâ€™t interested enough to want to read it in depth.
I thought this was an excellent book but I can see that not all children will find it something they wish to read. Any child interested in music, any parent who is home schooling his or her child and most music or history teachers will find this worth reading.
This nonfiction book for young readers includes tools to help readers understand by doing.
By adding a CD or other audio performance of Beethoven's music with these activities you have a fully engaging way to teach not only music history but European history as well.
