When I stumbled across Poppy & the Brass Band and Poppy & the Orchestra — they keep the kids entertained for a few hours, so I can have 5 minutes to myself. After my divorce, I had to completely restart the book collection I had for my kids. I’m always looking for new and exciting books for the kids to read to each other. I totally lucked out with kids who LOVE to read, I can’t be more proud.

Magali Le Huche was born in Paris. She studied illustration in Strasbourg, then returned to Paris where she has illustrated more than forty books for children, some of which she also wrote. She regularly teaches art workshops for young people.
I had the kids over the last week for their Spring Break, it was short but amazing! During that time, we had storybook time at least twice each day. My oldest son loves reading books to his younger brother. It’s the sweetest things honestly. They both really enjoyed these books. While my oldest read the books, he let his brother push the buttons.
I’m a huge fan of how the illustrator has really painted a picture of how music can be educational and fun for children of all ages. I really believe that music can be fun for all ages, I caught myself reading the books while playing the different instruments along the way. There are two other books in this collection, I am totally going to get them for the kids at Christmas.
