New Children’s Book Alphabone Orchestra: A Musical Journey Through the Alphabet + GIVEAWAY
Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing about the New Children’s Book – Alphabone Orchestra:
A musical journey through the Alphabet, in partnership with Alphabone Orchestra.
Alphabone Orchestra written and illustrated by Dr. John R. Gerdy is a magical tool of a book that introduces your children to the alphabet in a new, creative way!
With clever alliteration, zany characters, and bright colors, the Alphabone Orchestra children’s book uses musical terms and colorfully quirky art to teach your kids their ABCs. The book visually shows the differences between UPPER and lowercase letters while subtly introducing kids to the wonderful world of music! In the best way possible—it’s not your ordinary alphabet book.
Dr. Dude B. Fonky, a famed musicologist, will guide you through the alphabet with kaleidoscopic illustrations that make kids “ooh” and “aah.” Children will discover that each letter of the alphabet is a musical character accompanied by an alliterative storyline.
Alphabone Orchestra is a fun and lighthearted read that will grow with your child! This versatile learning tool will be a radiant read for anyone and everyone from ages 1 to 101. There are bright colors and simple shapes to interest young children, tongue-twisting alliteration for toddlers to practice pronunciation, and musical terms for elementary-age kids. It also features “Grace Notes” for parents and young adults to learn about the benefits of music education and a Glossary of Musical Terms and Instruments to expand readers’ knowledge of music.
It should come as no surprise that the author and illustrator—Dr. John R. Gerdy—is passionate about music and child development, which inspired Alphabone Orchestra. In 2006, Gerdy founded Music For Everyone, a nonprofit cultivating the power of music as an educational and community-building tool in his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Gerdy currently serves as Executive Director, and his organization has invested over $2.0 million in school and community music programs and initiatives to date.
When you purchase Alphabone Orchestra, a percentage of your sale goes directly to Music for Everyone and Lancaster Early Education Center, helping children from low to moderate-income families enter school ready to learn. It’s always great to benefit others, and these two causes are particularly fitting for this book.
If you’re looking for an engaging, educational read to teach your children the alphabet, Alphabone Orchestra is a great pick! Support the arts, introduce a new reader to the world of music, and invest in a fun book that will grow with your kids.
