Publisher Description:

Studiostone Soapstone Carving Kits are designed to inspire creativity and introduce people of all ages to the art of carving. Kits include everything you need to create your own carving from start to finish in 90 minutes.

Category Description for Soapstone Carving Kits:

Eco-friendly carving kits include a cut stone animal shape that you file, sand and wax to create a rounded, shiny creation. It starts out dull with sharp edges. As you work on it, the animal becomes more realistic and detailed. Finer sanding makes it smooth and the wax shines the stone to reveal the beautiful natural colors. Double kits include 2 shapes and 1 file. Made in Canada. Detailed instructions walk you through the process and each animal takes about 90 minutes to finish.

My child and I both love book 1 of this series! It is easy to use and provides clear instructions for everything from how to hold the instrument to how to behave at a concert The large typeface makes it easy to read from a distance so that you can read it while holding the violin Simple drawings of the violin and of children learning how to play are included throughout A completion certificate is in the back as well as a mail-order form to receive a (free) gold seal to place on it The book is in black and white plastic comb-bound Each lesson is brief so that the student is not overwhelmed with too much information but students who quickly grasp a concept can move forward to the next with ease The strings A and E are emphasized D and G are not used at all in Book 1 but are introduced in volume 2 Fingering to make additional notes is not taught in this bookReading music is NOT required to use this book! Parents who want to help their children learn to play the violin whether or not they read music themselves would find this book easy going It is a great book for children who want to start playing NOW but would be discouraged by trying to figure out sheet music Students using this book will not learn actual songs but will learn patterns that will lead to playing songs in the second book (Patterns include one such as "short short short short long long" to the pattern of "pea-nut but-ter ice cream")No teacher preparation is necessary though it is helpful to skim the lesson beforehand The book provides an excellent preface to parents/teachers on how to use the book most effectively Multiple age students can use the book at the same time The book seems geared to kids under the age of 10 or so For example patterns to play are written as "pea-nut but-ter ice cream" and there is a charming story about how to hold the bow featuring a princess who needs a place to sit Still the book would be useful for any age student particularly for older students who might be intimidated by the instrument If you want to encourage a child to develop an interest in the violin you may want to begin with Book 0 I did not use it as my child was already keenly motivated and found that nothing was missed by beginning with Book 1I studied the violin as a child and found that this book answered a lot of my own lingering questions about the instrument I would highly recommend this book to any homeschooling parent whether or not they have studied the violin before In fact it would be ideal if the parent rented a violin to learn right alongside his/her child! As for learning styles a visual learner will LOVE this book for its clearly written instructions An auditory learner would appreciate the CD (purchased separately) though I did not use it The kinesthetic learner will appreciate the short lessons and the freedom to just start playing the instrument unhindered by too many "rules" I do not think that this book can replace the value of a violin teacher but it is a good place to start if you want to see if your child really wants to learn before you commit to lessons It is also a good supplement for children who are already in lessons but need a little extra encouragement or attentionThe only thing you need to get started with this book is a violin with its bow rosin and a digital tuner (or a tuning pipe)General Note: The violin is one of few instruments that are scaled down to fit a child's small frame Renting a violin is preferable to purchase for children Rental contracts often provide for trading "up" to a larger size as the child grows Rental prices can be quite reasonable
