This has some pretty good stuff in it and could be really useful. And since I drag MY kids into my work a lot, this may be the pot calling the kettle black. But:

There is too much here about the Nields kids, in particular about how musically advanced and talented they all are to the point of making me feel guilty that my kids don't play musical instruments!

If it does that to me, who pretty much sings for a living and has confidence in sharing music with kids, how is it going to affect less confi

While the emphasis of this book is best applied to younger children, I liked the idea of a family song canon, the section on practicing an instrument, and the general encouragement directed at parents who might not consider themselves musical. Still, I wish I'd read this 5+ years ago, when my kids were preschoolers; they just aren't as interested in making paper instruments and singing "Grand Ole Duke of York" as they once were.

Five stars for the book- it is attractive, user-friendly, and encouraging to people of all musical and non-musical backgrounds to make music with their children. The included CD was not as good of quality as I had expected, but I'm not entirely certain that wasn't sort of on purpose- the idea being that they didn't want to make it too perfect since the main point of their book was that anyone can make music with their family.

This book is an amazingly resourceful tool to use with your own children and or for use in baby/toddler story times. From singing, to incorporating musical instruments in to play, and games for many ages this book offers a lot of fun ideas for playing with children. It includes a multitude of songs to be sung a loud as well as games and movements to accompany them. This will be a must buy for our library, and I cannot wait to check it out to take home.

I haven't read the book yet, so this rating is just for the CD.
My two almost three year old loves it - she practically inhales the stereo getting up close so she can listen intently. The songs are folksy - some old trad Irish ones as well (I'm Irish) - some familiar, some not. I'd recommend it for the CD.
The intro to the book was a bit hokey - will update review once I've read it.

Didn't get enough time to delve into this book . . . so I think I'll just have to buy.
Love the idea of a family canon and ideas at the end of the book for celebrating the seasons & holidays with music.
Cool.
