Dr. Carolyn Waters Broe is a conductor, composer, and violist. Carolyn brings her love for music and education to the fore in her book Fifty Famous Composers for Kids of All Ages. This book is a fantastic resource for those who love music. She discusses the better-known composers but also the lesser-known. One thing that sets this book apart is the information concerning female composers throughout history. For each composer presented, Carolyn gives much more than just a list of their more famous compositions. She includes information about their family and life. Sometimes we forget that great people had a life outside of just what they are known for. Carolyn presents the humanity of each composer. This is a wonderful reference work that is a joy to read.

She will thrill you with stories of not only the best-known composers but also some you may have never heard of before. Each composer is presented as someone you can relate to because they are not only giants of music, but they are also human beings.
