Praise for 101 Rhythm Instrument Activities:
"Easy to use and filled with many great 'why didn't I think of that' ideas. The piggyback chant and song activities are dynamic and lend themselves equally well for use by the beginner, as well as, the veteran searching for fun and innovative ways to incorporate music/instruments into their daily curriculum. This book is a must-have resource for any early childhood classroom teacher or music teacher/therapist."
--Stephen Fite, musician and President of Melody House
"What fun! Abigail Flesch Connors' 101 Rhythm Instrument Activities for Young Children offers teachers and children a wonderful alternative to experiencing music through singing alone. The movement, rhythm, and creativity emphasized in this book are essential to the early childhood experience--and that's only the start of what children learn from these clever activities."
--Rae Pica, author of Teachable Transitions and Wiggle, Giggle, and Shake
