THE BIG BRASS BAND A parade! Watch from the sidelines, as a little fellow follows the magnificent marching band go by. He is overcome by the sounds, and every instrument is his favorite. How can he decide which instrument he will play? A delightful rhyming tale about a parade, a band, and a boy making journey while we learn the names of the instruments in a marching band. But be aware…your children may want an instrument after reading this book! Which instrument will they choose?
