It is almost Friday night Outside the dark is getting darker and here and there around the city ninety two men and thirteen women are getting dressed to go to work First they bathe and put on their underwear Then they don special black and white apparel Then when the one. Written by the late Karla Kuskin and lavishly humorously illustrated by Marc Simont this rather lengthy picture book shows the hundred and five members of an urban philharmonic orchestra preparing to go to work on a Friday night Interspersed with gentle humour The Philharmonic Gets Dressed depicts the preparations the members of the philharmonic go through before the start of a public performance washing dressing traveling to the orchestra hall last minute practicing and also shows and demonstrates that at a time of day when most people are settling in for a night at home with their family and friends the workday of the musicians is barely starting Now although as a general concept I have indeed uite enjoyed The Philharmonic Gets Dressed and do simply absolutely and totally adore Marc Simont's accompanying illustrations I would have to agree with my GR friend Lisa that Karla Kuskin's presented text does unfortunately have the tendency to feel rather ploddingly pedestrian and as such it does not really measure up all that well to the descriptive and in all ways oh so wonderful illustrations and in fact so much so that I think I would probably prefer The Philharmonic Gets Dressed with just the illustrations as a wordless picture book which is kind of majorly strange for me as I do not as a rule tend to like worldless picture books all that much But Marc Simont's illustrations are truly and in fact evocative and detailed enough in and of themselves to engender many different and interesting anecdotes stories both humorous and serious and I kind of feel that Karla Kuskin's narrative actually somewhat limits Simont's excellent pictorial images and does not do them nearly enough justiceAnd finally there is one thing with regard to this here book in particular that has both annoyed frustrated and with dismay massively infuriated me and continues to do so and that is the fact that there do exist uite a number of rantingly frothing at the proverbial mouth rabid reviews by moronic and ignorant puritanical lowlives claiming that The Philharmonic Gets Dressed is somehow problematic and inappropriate for children simply because the illustrations depict men and women taking baths and showers dressed in their underwear donning articles of clothing and so on and so on Now how sadly disgustingly unenlightened and ridiculously puritanical but also how potentially psychologically damaging this type of an attitude is as yes teaching one's children that nakedness that one's body that one's underclothes are unnatural and inappropriate to be seen or to be mentioned could so easily lead to serious mental health issues and a negative view towards both the human body and perhaps even essential everyday activities such as basic personal hygiene and the act of dressing oneself and I for one would even go so far as to also claim that this type of philosophy and mindset are dangerously neglectful if not actually ABUSIVE parenting practices and willfully transferring one's own and personal hangups and issues onto one's innocent children onto others as indeed nakedness in and of itself is definitely completely natural and innocentt and frankly anyone who thinks otherwise has some majorly problematic mental health issues I do therefore warmly recommend The Philharmonic Gets Dressed and even with my criticism that Karla Kuskin's narrative is a bit lacklustre to children who enjoy uirky stories with humorous illustrations andor are interested in and intrigued by the general workday of a member of a philharmonic orchestra and to their parents of course And indeed The Philharmonic Gets Dressed would also be a good picture book to share with children whose parents might have to work at night or at other hours not part of the common and standard nine to five workday

    I was reading this book for the Goodreads Picture Book Club and I was extremely intrigued with this book “The Philharmonic Gets Dressed” is a children’s book by Karla Kuskin along with illustrations Marc Simont that details the preparation that the members of the Philharmonic Orchestra must undergo to get ready for their encore “The Philharmonic Gets Dressed” is a great book for children who love learning about the inner workings of an orchestraIt is Friday night and ninety two men and thirteen women are getting dressed to get ready for work First they all take baths and wash themselves then they put on the black and white outfits and then they pack up their instruments head on to the auditorium and begin to playI truly enjoyed this book because it explained so much about what the musicians of the orchestra have to go through to prepare themselves for the orchestra performance I loved the way that Karla Kuskin made this book extremely informative by just basically detailing what each member of the orchestra dresses up in to get ready for their performance and what really interested me about the uniforms that each member wears is how much attention is paid to the conductor as he dresses up for the performance I loved how Karla Kuskin gave so much detail on what the conductor wears for his uniform such as having wavy black hair with a white lightning streak and having a very soft white shirt with ruffles down the front with special cuffs Another aspect of this book that I really loved was Marc Simont’s illustrations as they are extremely cute and I really loved seeing all the members getting dressed up for the orchestra since I was always interested in seeing what their outfits would look like for the orchestra and it is interesting to see that the members of the orchestra mainly wears black and white outfits rather than colorful outfits for a performance Now some parents might complain about the members of the orchestra undressing and bathing themselves but personally this does not bother me since it was done in a non sexual wayParents should know that this book might be a bit too lengthy for smaller children to go through which is why I gave it a four star rating instead of a five star rating because it was a bit long to read through Even though it would be interesting to children to see how the members of the orchestra dress up most smaller children might become bored with the length of this book Parents might want to save one half of the book for the next day to keep the child’s interest goingOverall “The Philharmonic Gets Dressed” is a great book in detailing the preparation phrase of getting dressed for a performance in the orchestra and what kinds of outfits each member dresses in for the orchestra I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since the book might be a bit too long for smaller children

    I love the symphony and I love books but I thought that this book was dull The illustrations are wonderful The text was plodding It’s a very straightforward detailed account of orchestra members getting dressed leaving their homes and going to work to make music together and it ends before any music starts It would have been a interesting book with the illustrations and no words at all Maybe it was my mood but I thought that this was a boring ineffective way to try to excite children about the symphony and symphonic music

    The Philharmonic Gets Dressed was a Picture Book Club read for this month's theme Music liked the concept of the book giving incite into what the Philharmonic does to get ready for the evening However it just didn't come together for me While the pictures were interesting enough the text however was not I found myself skimming the text in the middle of the book because it become uite doldrum It wasn't so much about music itself but about the people getting dressed

    This is an interesting and unusual way to look at an orchestra; it shows how many parts have to come together for this group to become one and turn black notes on white pages into a symphony We loved the fun illustrations Marc Simont is one of our favorites from all the Nate The Great stories we've read and the people in underwear definitely got a giggle from our girls The narrative was simple and a math exercise in itself We loved pointing out all the instruments we knew and I had fun guessing who would play what Overall this is a fun but somewhat strange book about the Philharmonic We discovered this book as it was a selection for the March 2011 Music Themed club reads for the Picture Book Club in the Children's Book Group here at Goodreads

    I like the concept of showing the members of a Philharmonic orchestra getting ready for their performance But why oh why did Simont have to show so many adults in their underwear or coming out of a shower or bath and only covered by steam or a towel? I live in a very conservative area where nearly naked adults is something of a problem in a children's picture book This was a Reading Rainbow book so I didn't worry about content before I purchased it I haven't seen that episode but I would really like to see how or if they dealt with those illustrations

    Underwear is funny I guess there are objections to this book because it depicts adults in their underwear I'm bemused by that Karla Kuskin's charming description of the preparations of the men and women of the orchestra for their evening climbing into their formal wear and arriving at the concert hall It's all described with affection and humor The illustrations by Marc Simont pair perfectly to make this a gem of a book to share with your youngest music lovers

    105 members of the philharmonic take baths dry off put on their underthings get dressed put on their coats etc and go to the concert hall to play a concert I enjoyed the accuracy in illustration such as the timpanist putting his head down to the drum to tune They really got the details right

    Charming childlike funny This is my picture book find of the weekend Published in 1982 The Philharmonic Gets Dressed gives a clever introduction to the orchestra following 105 musicians as they get ready for show night They take bubble baths and steamy showers put on undershirts or pantyhose and complicated brassieres Eventually they fix their dresses and their bow ties pull on coats or boots with heals and head out into the city to Philharmonic Hall where they ready their instruments fill the stage and PLAY The incomparable Marc Simont adds lots of humor and detail to the text with his silly expressive illustrations Probably most enjoyable to 4 7 year old kids
