The book won the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent (Illustrator Elbrite Brown) in 2004. Why the long wait? Well, real life has a way of interrupting a writer's fantasy world from time to time. We had a rough couple of years that included an across-state move to be closer to family, and some severe health problems. But all is well now, and I was at last able to finish THE SECRET OF THE DOOLITTLE DEVICE.

Love that it's multicultural, doesn't stereotype and includes a wide range of music genres and instruments. We took this out of the library for my music loving son so many times that we bought it. The artwork is also interesting - my 2 year old keeps pointing out that some of the people have no eyes so it gave us a chance to talk about creative liberties of the artist and how he can draw things however he wants when he draws pictures. Highly recommend if your child loves music or instruments.

As a music teacher, I truly appreciate this book. It introduces different styles of music (from classical to bluegrass) and shows how a child can still appreciate each in his/her own way by joining in with various percussion instruments. In class I use a CD of excerpts I compiled to better illustrate each genre while I play the same percussion instrument as the girl in the story. I then pass around the instrument to each student in class to play along too. My own kids love it too!

I have a horrible nasty habit that I've been fighting against for years and years. When I see that a book, whether for adult or child, has won an award of any sort, I immediately become the Queen of the Critique. Suddenly, no matter how wonderful or well written the book is, I'm continually underwhelmed. I read through the tale and think to myself, "Well, it was good. It just wasn't THAT good". Now that is my usual reaction. Thankfully, it is not my only reaction. And after reading "My Family Plays Music", I am proud to say that it wasn't my reaction in the least. My response to this fine creation was something far more along the lines of, "It WAS that good! Well, I'll be darned".
Following a spunky girl sporting cornrows and a purple bow smack dab in the middle of her head, we observe her pointed observations about each member of her family. The child of a uniquely musical fam, each person related to her excels in a different genre. Her mother plays in a country western band, as her father lends his talents to a string quartet. Some people in this family play rock and roll. Others pipe out cool jazz in clubs like "The Blue Note". There's swing music, and bongos in poetry cafes. The girl even has relatives involved in everything from church organs to (and my credulousness was stretched a bit on this one) polka bands. Mmm. Nonetheless, everyone has their part to play. As each person is described, the young girl plays some type of a percussion instrument to accompany them. I liked this fact, if only because it gives percussionists the respect they are due. This girl is every bit as much a musician as her family members, whether she's beating out a tune on a soup kettle, cowbell, and woodblock or shaking her tambourine and maracas. This swell story focuses on diversity without making its point and shaking it in your face.
A helpful glossary is included in the back of the book that explains each term that might be considered difficult for kids to understand. These are accompanied by small pictures that define the terms clearly and concisely. Anyone wishing to explain the difference between woodwind and brass instruments will be able to do so with this resource. In terms of the book's construction itself, Judy Cox has written a great story. Elbrite Brown's illustrations act as a perfect match, making it difficult to believe that this is the illustrator's first picture book. I've rarely seen cut paper pictures that get the small details down so well. Whether he's creating a tiny finger lifted from a fiddle or the delicate black lines that make up a man's goatee, Brown is adept at his work and we are the ones who benefit. All in all, a great book that is entirely deserving of the 2004 Coretta Scott King Award that it has received.

I adore this book and am suprised that it has so few reviews. It belongs on every listmania list of books for children.

Everything about this book is amazing. The art, the celebration of extended family, the shared love of music, the black family, the strong female lead character, the lyrical story with the gasp provoking lovely ending.

I found this book while looking for children's literature. This is a wonderful book that covers many different types of music and makes playing music look fun and interesting. I highly recommend this book!
Prince Persie
This book is a great book. It teaches children that there are so many different types of music out there. It helps them to visually see that some even call for different ways people dress. It explains the different types of music from a child's perspective so that other children can understand. She also teaches children what different types of instruments are used to play music. It has very colorful pictures and they compliment the story text. She talks about every family member and the type of instrument they play and the type of music. She also talks about what she plays when she plays with them. It was a great picture book to read.

We had used a series of books by Trisha Speed Shaskan to look at musical instruments:

Keyboard Family Takes Center Stage! (Musical Families)
Opening Night with the Woodwind Family! (Musical Families)
Brass Family on Parade! (Musical Families)
String Family in Harmony! (Musical Families)
Around the World with the Percussion Family! (Musical Families)

This book is great because of all the instruments and different settings for music being shown, and also the high quality illustrations. Music is everywhere.

This book shows lots of instruments being played, and lots of percussion play-alongs. Practically begs for kids to shake and pound and make noise. Great choice.
