Music class is underway!
As soon as the teacher starts to play his guitar and sing, the kids are whirling and twirling and having a blast. But for one hesitant little music maker, it is all a bit overwhelming at first. With energetic and bright illustrations, this reassuring story about the courage it sometimes takes to try something new will resonate with children everywhere.
From David Weinstone, the creator of the wildly popular Music for Aardvarks program, and the pitch-perfect Vin Vogel comes this infectious celebration of music class that will make you want to sing and dance with your own little ones!

Praise For Music Class Today!…
“[A] friendly, stylishly illustrated rhyme-fest.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Weinstone...certainly knows what makes a class tick (or rock). The children in the class are wonderfully diverse...[and] the mannerisms of the kids are spot-on. Listen to Weinstone sing the song (available for download from the publisher). It will become addictive. Reassurance for wallflowers everywhere.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Children will ask for repeated readings to catch all of the action in Vogel's boldly colored, expressive illustrations . . . A welcome addition to picture book collections.” —School Library Journal
