Next is Treetop Slumbers with the sloth hanging from a branch. A pythom slinkes across the bottom of the page as the students are inspired to play the mysterious Perilous Pythons. A spinder monkey swings from a branch on the opposite page while students play Flying High and the all time favorite piece–Jungle Clown. The books continues with themed pages design to inspire students to portray the the ideas through the music. Each page is carefully sequenced to introduce new notes iand concepts so that students advance as smoothly as possible. Careful review is build into the book to insure mastery of the concepts.
