Freddie The Frog® And The Bass Clef Monster
From Mystic Publishingby Sharon Burch/illustrated by Tiffany Harris
Freddie the Frog® awakens from hibernation to discover he is not on his beloved Treble Clef Island. Freddie's search for home leads him through Frog Land - a strange place full of bizarre creatures all pointing him to the Bass Clef Monster, who "loves frogs." Discover the dancing bees, a moonlit cocoon garden, and the fire-breathing dragon, and dare to meet the Bass Clef Monster.
This is the second adventure in the Freddie the Frog® Books series. The first adventure story, Freddie The Frog® And The Thump In The Night (also available from MusicK8.com), introduces the reader to the treble clef. In The Bass Clef Monster, students are introduced to the nine notes of the bass clef simply by listening to the CD and turning the pages. As in the first book/CD, the lines and spaces represent each part of this eerie adventure, and the sound effects and music bring it to life.
Also available for use with Freddie's second adventure is a set of nine corresponding flash cards (sold separately), showing G, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and A. These 5.5" x 8.5" cards are laminated and made of sturdy cardstock with rounded corners for safety.
Students can show how much they've learned using the Freddie The Frog And The Bass Clef Monster poster (also sold separately). The black and white "question side" of the 10.25" x 25.5" poster tests students on note names, while the other, colorful side provides answers.
