It’s Music Time by T.C. Bartlett is a story filled with imagination, animals, and music. The story starts with a young boy on his way to a drum lesson. On the way, he makes a slight detour into the woods only to discover some wonderful music coming from the forest creatures. He decides to join in with his drum and they have a wonderful time until a lion gate-crashes their soiree. A musical mishap ensues but the lion who caused the mishap saves the day, along with the rest of the forest creatures. The boy finally makes it to his music lesson, a bit late, but with some wonderful companions in tow.

It’s Music Time is a wonderful, almost wordless picture book. As a former children’s librarian, some of my favorite books to share in storytime are wordless ones because this gives the kids an opportunity to create the story with you. It’s Music Time would have been at the top of my list to share with them. T.C. Bartlett’s illustrations are bright, bold, and full of delightful detail. It is such a gift to be able to tell a story so completely through wonderful drawings alone. It’s Music Time is a celebration of imagination and music and getting caught up in the moment. The joy of music is clearly shown on each page. I believe kids and adults alike will want to grab an instrument, sing a song, or put on some music and dance after reading this wonderful book.
