When this audiobook begins, the trombone is playing all by itself. But soon a trumpet makes a duet, a french horn a trio, and so on until the entire orchestra is assembled on stage.
Written in elegant and rhythmic verse, this unique counting book is the perfect introduction to musical groups. Listeners of all ages are sure to shout "Encore!" when they reach the final page of this joyous celebration of classical music.

If you have someone in your family who is learning to count, this is a wonderful intro to numbers.
The author uses a clever rhyme scheme to introduce the instruments of an orchestra. Not only does he count up from one to ten, but this audio version provides the sound of the instrument in question.
Readers are introduced to words like solo, duo and septet. What a fun musical way to learn about numbers.
