I read this to a couple of kids every day, and we all love this book. Did you know Ben Franklin played the guitar or that Bach wrote a cantata about coffee? How about that the Banjo was originally created in Africa? This is a fantastic book for adults and kids, alike.

This book has been a real interesting read. Interesting facts about music history that more should learn about. I’d recommend this to anyone who listens to music of any genre.
