The way we listen to music has come a long way since the invention of the phonograph by Thomas Edison in 1877. Today we can enjoy music in many ways – on a tiny minidisc CD player, on the radio or TV, or even on the Internet. Radio technology has developed too, from live broadcasts in the 1920s to the modern DJ who uses a computer to search for music tracks. We can play electronic versions of traditional instruments such as piano and drums, and the Internet has meant that more people have access to music from all over the world. Emerald level (equivalent to the Lime bridging book band) provides a variety of chapter books and non-fiction titles. Readers are encouraged to experience different text types, writing styles and genres to develop their own reading tastes. For children who prefer to read non-fiction texts, the PM Plus Non-fiction titles offer carefully researched information thematically linked to key learning areas. The texts are supported with superb photography and realistic illustrations.
