What a neat product especially for an untrained classical-music "dummy" like me With every major composer (and many I'd consider minor) at my fingertips this thing turns me into a homeschooling supermama! The information is a little over my kids' heads but we like that there is a picture for every composer (photos for the more recent ones) along with their "greatest hits" and a few highlights of their lives This way we will never forget any composers we have studiedTwo minor quibbles with this product: first the composers are in chronological not alphabetical order This isn't a problem in itself but if like me you're not aware that Mendelssohn came between Berlioz and Chopin you'd have to look him up in the alphabetical index to find that he's on page 23 But the page numbers are so tiny squished in the bottom of the page that it can be hard to quickly flip through and find the right one The other issue is a physical one - the first composer picture (after Mozart on the cover) is Vivaldi and the way that the neck of his violin in the picture sticks out means that it's at great risk of tearing off When I noticed ours was starting to rip I attached it securely with packing tape but at the hands of toddlers and even big kids the neck of his violin might not have lasted long otherwise So be aware that this is not the most durable product in a family setting: best to keep it out of the hands of the very youngest little ones
