What’s My Instrument? is a fun little rhyming story. Marilyn the Mongoose wants to be in a band. First she tries the piano, then the drums, the trumpet, but nothing goes the way she wants. She even tries to be a DJ. Finally she figures out her spot in the band, but now she needs more members.

Little ones will enjoy this cute little picture book. It’s message is simple – have a dream, find a way to make it happen and then find friends to share that dream with. Angus was probably my favorite friend in the band as he runs across the stage as guitarists sometimes do. I also found the rhymes to have a nice cadence to them and didn’t struggle with finding the right rhythm.


Marilyn the Mongoose is keen to start a band – but she can’t play an instrument!

“What’s My Instrument?” introduces children to a variety of musical instruments as Marilyn tries to find the one which is perfect for her.

It is a humorous and delightfully illustrated children’s book ideal for toddlers and early readers.
