Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin by Lloyd Moss (Paperback) Winner of 1996 Caldecott Honor
With mournful moan and silken tone,
itself alone comes ONE TROMBONE...
Then a trumpet joins in to become a duet; add a French horn and voila! you have a trio -- and on it goes until an entire orchestra is assembled on stage. Lloyd Moss's iresistible rhymes and Marjorie Pricemans's energetic illustrations make beautiful music together -- a masterpiece that is the perfect introduction to musical instruments and musical groups, and a counting book that redefines the genre.

"I wish I could give this book 6 stars, because it is a truly wonderful book for preschoolers. One by one, the instruments in a classic orchestra are introduced, combining simple counting with music education. The text is in elegant rhyme, perfectly complemented by the bright, original & whimsical illustrations (make sure you pay attention to the "dance" performed by the cats, dog and mouse). A top-notch addition to a young child's library."
"As a young adult growing up in the NYC metro area, Mr. Moss taught me about classical music while I listened to his show(s) on WQXR. This radio station and more particularly Lloyd Moss, really got me into loving classical music. Mahler grooves and so does Mr. Moss in hi book Zin! I've given this book to countless friends with kids, and it is always a big hit on home plate.
Long live Zin!"
