I have loved all of Vicky Weber's books, and this one doesn't disappoint. The cute note characters she has created will be loved by students. As a music teacher, this book will lend itself well to teaching about how notes go up and down the staff, as well as how to work with others and try new things. You could easily sing the along with Step and Skip's adventures on the staff. The graphics are adorable and colorful too, making it a great book for kids to enjoy reading on their own. I plan to use this book with my elementary students 1st grade and up. It will lend itself well to music making and movement as well.
I found this book to be super cute. Great for littles to get an introduction to how steps and skips work on a staff. After reading this story, I can see me having a staff on the floor and the students try to do the steps and skips themselves. The story gives students a way to remember the process more easily. I look forward to giving it a try this fall. : )
My students love friendship books and I cannot wait to share this exploration of trusting and taking chances with a friend to experience something new! It is such a cute way to explain the concept of skips and steps to young musicians... Great job Vicki!
This book was adorable! The story was so clever with a great way to teach students about steps and skips. The pictures were cute and eye catching. I loved how step and skip had their own individual personalities. I cannot wait to share this book with my students this year!
This book is great to use in the music classroom. It's visually appealing and intriguing, and uses child-friendly language to explain the relationship of notes on the staff and how moving notes function. I teach "step" and "skip" starting in Kindergarten, and will use this book as a tool to anchor students in discussion when we're playing and reading music.
I'm delighted to see Vicki Weber's newest book to share with the young musicians in my elementary music classes. Adorable illustrations and simple text make this an engaging introduction to a challenging concept for little ones.
Grateful to be a part of the launch team and delighted to add this book to my growing classroom collection of Vicki Weber titles.
When Step Met Skip is such a GEM! I absolutely love using children's literature in my music classroom; my students love bringing the characters from their favorite stories alive through rhythm and melody. This story, of Step and Skip, will allow us to have authentic introductions to harmonic elements in music, as well as discussing leaps and step-wise motion in different musical excerpts that we sing and listen to. Thank you for creating this fantastic story!
I love growing my library, both personally (for my 2 and 3 year-olds) and for my own music teacher library. The story is engaging and informative, and my kiddos LOVe when I pull out one of Vicky’s books! We can’t wait for the next edition!
