We have had a wonderful time learning about the great composers with Zeezok Publishing's reprinted series of children's biographies by Opal Wheeler. We would have enjoyed reading Joseph Haydn, the Merry Little Peasant all by itself, but adding Judy Wilcox's associated Study Guide is the icing on the cake.

The biography tells the basic story of the composer's life, in a simple way that has delighted the hearts of our children, but the study guide gave us the background information we need for our study of music history: dates, background information, even comprehension questions.

In this study guide, there is a map of Europe with the major cities that Haydn visited, and then for each chapter there are reading comprehension questions and answers, an exploration of character qualities shown in the narrative, and "Tidbits of Interest" or further detail on people, places, things, and events in the composer's life.

Some of the black-and-white illustrations from the biography appear in the Study Guide, and a page and a half of endnotes, giving information sources, rounds out this information-packed 32-page book.

Also available from Zeezok Publishing are the biography, and a CD with all the music excerpts from the biography in MP3 files, and PDF files with coloring pages and music sheets. (Please see related reviews.)

We have gotten a lot out of this series on composers' lives, especially the life of Haydn (our favorite, so far), and look forward to reading more.
