More About The First Music by Dylan Pritchett; Erin Bennett Banks
 
 
 
Overview
Don't just sit and watch, join the parade Inspired by the sounds and rhythms of the west African forest, avid storyteller and performer, Dylan Pritchett weaves a tale that reveals the music we all have inside us. In the beginning, each animal make his own sound--everyone, that is, except the frogs, who seem more comfortable listening than performing. But when Elephant stumbles on a log, he accidentally creates an intriguing, unfamiliar sound that engages everyone's attention. What follows might be called the first jam session, with each animal contributing his or her unique sound to the rhythm to create an engaging, harmonious, sweet sound - the first music. Erin Bennett Banks' bold and vibrant oil paintings capture not only the density of the African forest and the personalities of its inhabitants but also bring this cumulative tale to a satisfying crescendo. These singing animals create a wonderful harmony as well as teach readers the importance of citizenship, resourcefulness and sharing.August House Publishers also offers an animated version of The First Music as well as free lesson plans Visit
