The Big Bell and the Little Bell by Martin Kalmanoff with illustrations by Alastair Graham - Book Review Mini

Thursday, January 15

The Big Bell and the Little Bell recounts a 50's era song in text and pictures and includes a music CD for added enjoyment. And enjoyable it might be, with vivid illustrations and a positive message, were it not for the silly kitten family addition, pounding moralization and limit in scope.

There are certainly some uses for The Big Bell and the Little Bell, music teachers would be especially encouraged to have a look, I just wish there had been more meat between the pretty pages.
