Verdi for Kids: His Life and Music with 21 Activities
By Helen Bauer
Forward by Deborah Voigt

Recommended for children aged 9 and up, Verdi for Kids offers young readers an accessible, behind-the-scenes peek into the exciting world of opera and traces Verdi’s path to fame. Verdi for Kids is an engaging resource for students, parents, and teachers. Its creative activities, such as singing like a diva, making a panpipe, playing bocce ball, and sketching a costume for Falstaff, reinforce the musical concepts and terms that are introduced within and elucidate the times in which Verdi lived. Along with learning about various opera jobs, opera production, what takes place at rehearsals, and opera house history, inquisitive kids will gain a fuller understanding of Verdi's life, times, and music.

“This will be particularly useful for parents and classroom teachers hoping to make the study of great music more interesting.”  —Kirkus Reviews
