Roar-Chestra!: A Wild Story of Musical Words
Hardcover - English

An animated conductor and his orchestra of animals let the words move them in this engaging exploration of some beautiful and inspiring musical terms.

In this simple introduction to seven musical terms, Robert Heidbreder's rhythmic poetry is paired with Duýan Petričic's exuberant illustrations to perfectly convey the terms' meanings. Each term is first featured on a spread beside an image of a conductor animatedly leading his (unseen) orchestra in alignment with the term. Turn the page, and we find a short line of text that provides a succinct physical definition of the term, along with expressive art showcasing the animal orchestra using movement to interpret the description. For glissando, we find: "Gently gliding, slipping, sliding," with an image of animals flowing across the pages as if rolling on a wave. For fortissimo, the text reads, "Loudly crashing --- stomping, stamping," while the animals are shown with their heads thrown back and their mouths wide open, roaring for all the world to hear. It's a performance so enticing, readers won't be able to resist joining in!

This unique picture book provides an engaging and entertaining way for children to understand and remember the meanings of these common musical terms (all Italian and great fun to pronounce). But it is also sure to inspire readers to get up and move, following and mimicking the animals, or, perhaps, playing the conductor. An excellent choice for any unit on music, this book offers an accessible and effective way to learn musical terms as well as a fun opportunity to play with music.
