The focus on tone color and interpretation fosters musical growth while developing early reading skills. Rests are minimally used to increase student awareness of melodic shape and forward rhythmic motion. Short creative opportunities that “spin” from the pieces help to inspire the student’s composing talent. Includes an optional composing project at the end of the book. Contents include: A Rainbow Is a Smile (Turned Upside Down) • Most of All I Like Rainbows • A Double Rainbow • I’m a Waling Rainbow • Raindbow, Rainbow • The Storm and the Rainbow • At the End of the Rainbow.
