As a music teacher, I’ve always been passionate about introducing children to the wonders of music. One of the best ways to do this is through storytelling. Children’s books about music not only entertain, but also inspire kids to appreciate and engage with music in meaningful ways. Here are some of our favourite books about music that make us smile, laugh, and sing along, and have been requested over and over and over again, on repeat!

Music for Mister Moon by Philip C. Stead

The Diddle That Dummed
by Kes Gray and Fred Blunt

The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson

Never Play Music Right Next to the Zoo
by John Lithgow

Because by Mo Willems

Trombone Shorty by Troy Andrews

Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae & Guy Parker-Rees

Cows in the Kitchen

Happy Reading (& Singing)!
