What is a song?
Songs are universal, and every culture has its own. Some are celebratory. Others tell stories. Many are about love. There are national anthems and protest songs. There are lullabies and playground songs. This book teaches young readers about the many different kinds of songs around the world and throughout history. It then compares pairs of songs, allowing readers to think about how each pair is similar or different. Finally, readers are challenged to write their own song using a step-by-step process outlined in the book. Vocabulary boxes and facts about different songwriters round out this fun examination of song.
