Introduce emergent readers to the fundamental music concepts in a fun and exciting way. The first book and accompanying CD narration, Freddie the Frog and the Thump in the Night, introduces the treble clef staff as a map of where Freddie lives. Various lines and spaces represent each part of the story. The staff comes to life through Freddie's adventure and the reader's imagination. The CD includes two sing-along songs and author's notes. The magic of the Freddie story works best when combined with Freddie, the frog puppet. The 14" plush puppet becomes "alive" as a dear friend the children can see, touch, and hug. It enhances the magic and brings him to life for your child or students.
