Golden Frog is the fourth book in the interactive Musicadventures series, which puts learning about music directly into the hands of children. Aimed at children aged 10-14 years old, the book allows readers to explore the themes of the environment and conservation through the song Last Wave of the Golden Frog, performed here by Musica Viva In Schools group, Zeeko. Through a range of engaging activities, children discover aspects of song such as instrumentation, composition and improvisation. And through this song readers also embark on a journey of discovery through a Panama rainforest to learn about its most important inhabitants – the golden frog – and the reasons why it is facing extinction.
Children can add their own personal stories and photographs as they progress through the book, test their knowledge through quizzes and receive a certificate at the end of their rewarding journey.
Golden Frog is the latest offering from Australia’s leading provider of music education, Musica Viva. We encourage children to learn through play and independent exploration. Readers who have experienced a Musicadventures book have talked about it for months afterwards and can’t wait to read more.
