If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
There are ten musical instruments in my band.
Can you guess which instrument I'm going to play?
Could it be a guitar? Could it be a saxophone? What about a triangle?
Use the clues and have a guess. Lift the flap and see if you're right.
Learn about each instrument. Then use the instructions at the end of the book to make your own instruments. Who will play in your band?
This is a musical book full of fun and movement that educates and informs. The focus is on the introduction of ten instruments that any child would learn if they were to join a band. Each instrument is introduced by the letter that it begins with set in large font on the outside of the lift-the-flap section. Underneath is the instrument with information on how to play it, what it is made of, how it is held, what the major pieces are called and the family it belongs to: woodwind, brass, percussion or string.
The pages are made of sturdy but light plasticised cardboard that will easily wipe clean. The illustrations are enchanting - light-hearted and joyful, surrounded by notes and filled with colour. After the ten instruments have been presented, it's time for the whole band to play together.
At the back of the book there are eight craft activities to make: a guitar, French horn, castanets, tambourine, panpipes, violin, oboe, and a kazoo. The method is easy and most households would have the things that are needed for these projects. Below each activity is a picture of, and information on, each instrument in the project section.
All NLA books are specifically created with combined learning and entertainment in mind. They are produced with great insight and meticulous preparation and thought.
