Win a copy of my new children’s book, The Science of Song

Yes, I’ve got a children’s book. If you want the little ones to get deep into music from the get-go, this might be just the thing. The book explains a lot about how and why we make and listen to music.

I’ve teamed up with Kids Can Press and Lemmon Entertainment to give away 10 copies of my new 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! 

To enter, follow the steps below. ✨

  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.

Good luck everyone!
