I've kept this one under wraps for a long time and have decided it is time to share our news with my readers. We are due on July 16th and are so excited to welcome a new baby into the family.
I am so excited to offer this giveaway. I am actually friends with the illustrator, Jennifer Diaz. This is a charming book that introduces children to the basic concepts of reading music. It is one of my son's favorites. This giveaway is for the first book in the series. The second book is currently in production. I will host a giveaway for the 2nd book when available. Check out the clefs notes website where you can order the book and watch a slideshow of the book. They even have really cute gift bags with instruments for a very reasonable price. Here is the series and book description:
"The Clefs Notes: Discovering the World of Music series was created to introduce musical concepts to young children in the form of a bedtime story. The author, Joella Williams, is a piano teacher who realized the need for pre-lesson preparation, especially for young children to whom the concepts of reading music are most challenging. The intention of the Clef Notes series is to prepare children ages 2-8 for the process of learning to read music before they reach their first musical lesson. The series is also useful to reinforce musical concepts for children who have already begun lessons.
In the series opener The Clefs Meet the Bug Band, readers meet superheroes Mrs. Treble and Mr. Bass, as well as the members of The Bug Band. In this book, readers are introduced to the concepts that each Bug Band character represents a letter of the Music Alphabet, A-B-C-D-E-F-G, and the differences between notes found in the Treble and Bass Clefs.
This story takes place in a garden at the home of the Clefs. One day while working in it, they unearth a band made entirely of bugs! After meeting each member of the band, they decide to help them find a permanent home where they can rock and roll all night long!
The second book, A Day at the Music Circus is currently in production, and will introduce readers to the Lines of the Base Staff and to the arrangement of the notes that comprise it. Additional titles will introduce concepts of the Treble Staff, Middle Notes, and Rhythm."

I did not receive compensation for this review and giveaway, but I was given the product to review and the product to giveaway. All opinions are my own.
This is really simple to do and kids love it. Simply fill a large tub or bowl with dry beans and provide some fun scooping and measuring toys. You will need to put down a table cloth or blanket to more easily collect the beans for clean-up. My boys have asked to play with the beans three times in the last week and my 3 year old gets out trucks and trains and fills them with beans too.
