Nonfiction books about music for kids are few and far between so this book is a welcome addition to my school library collection. It is absolutely brilliant! Such a cool way to introduce kids (and adults) to all sorts of music and artists. Some interesting snippets about each artist/group with recommended songs and albums to listen to. Not only is the information good, the illustrations are fabulous and really portray the different personalities.

A must-but book for primary, intermediate and

I received an advanced reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

This book is a recommendation guide of music to listen to when your going through different emotional stages in your life and gives basic information on songs to listen to by numerous artists.
I would say that this book is aimed at ages between 9-15 as a guide.
This book was good but could have been made more interesting.

Hmmm This wasn't exactly the book I wanted, nor was it the book I thought to expect. It looked to be a kind of recommendation service, and in splitting musical acts up into what they do inspire us to be innovative, make us dance, give us solace when we're feeling up against it it does try its best and attach suggested artists to a specific purpose. The first entry, Lana del Rey, in the 'glumness' section, seemed to forecast a really good, accessible book of musicology for the young, showing ...more

What a clever idea for an anthology!  The author organizes this book into sections that reflect moods such as "cry it out with, fall in love with, celebrate life with, focus with, dance around with" and more.  Each section features artists as, for example, cry it out with Lana Del Rey, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Joni Mitchell and others.  There is then information about each artist including biographical facts and suggestions of songs. This book with illustrations of the musicians would make a great ...more

This was an interesting book to read. Being a music maker and student I was quite excited to read this book. I didn't really expect too much of it nor was I surprised. I enjoyed the layout of the book quite a lot and found the artists featured quite diversified. However it wasn't as detailed or interesting as I had expected and it didn't really add anything to my playlist. It was a book with a lot of potential but not as good as it could have been.

Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group - Wide Eyed

I love every aspect of this book. The colorful illustrations, musicians and artists to pair with emotions, the write ups. Everything in here is creative and beautiful.

Music can touch you and speak to you and drive you.

I want to binge this whole playlist.
