The Magic Ukulele by Dr. Carolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a great little book that introduces the ukulele to children. It is beautifully illustrated, and the story is written in rhyme, like a song. The book comes with an audio CD with narration by Roy Sakuma, a premier ukulele teacher in Hawaii. Sakuma is accompanied by award winning musician Ken Emerson. The book comes with clever chord charts, which are color-coded to the fretboard and the fingers, and there’s an appendix in the back, that gives a simple background and history of the ukulele in Hawaii. If you want to inspire children of any age to start the ukulele, this is a perfect choice!
