Here’s your last chance to win a copy of my children’s book, The Science of Song


Though most of us love listening to music, we may not spend much time thinking about how this came to be, or the science, technology, engineering and mathematics that are crucial to its existence. This illustrated book explores all of this, starting with the basics—how does sound work? And what, exactly, is music?

Do you have a young music lover in your family? Or know someone who does? 

If you answered yes, here’s your chance to WIN a copy! 

  1. Like the post on Instagram.
  2. Follow @alan_crossx, @lemmonent, and @kidscanpress
  3. Tag a friend who would gift this book to a child in their life! 

The winners will be chosen and contacted via DM on Tuesday, November 30th at 5:00 pm EST.

UPDATE: If it’s after 5pm EST and you didn’t win…
