My recommendations this week:
Amazon has some good deals for starter musical instruments if you’re in the market for one. Jonathan (10) saved up and bought this beginner’s full-size guitar, and I’ve been impressed with its quality (especially for the price!).
It’s #1 in acoustic guitars on Amazon and has over 400 5-star reviews.
This is one of those books (& series) that has worked its way into my heart – If you’ve never head of Miroslav Sasek & his global world tours you’re missing out!
This one compiles several of his titles into a single treasury. I’d recommend for ages 7 and up, but younger kids will love the illustrations as well.
