Kids' Guide to Learning the Ukulele by Emily Arrow - ADVISABLE

Kids’ Guide to Learning the Ukulele by Emily Arrow, 96 pages.  NON-FICTION  Happy Fox Books (Fox Chapel Publishing), 2020.  $13.  

Content: G  



Emily Arrow teaches the basics of learning to play the ukulele.  She breaks it down into steps of how to hold it, how to tune, how to strum and then provides basic songs to sing along with.  There are also pages for you to write your own songs.  Some of the songs included are Mary Had a Little Uke, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and You are My Sunshine.  

This how-to manual for learning the ukulele is a great start for any age.  The colorful photographs and basic instruction make it easy to understand.  I have two kids who play the ukulele and this book provided fun songs and good info.  Although the songs are for the younger crowd, I still think teens would be interested in the information for starting a new instrument, and when you start a new instrument you start with the beginner songs.
