Alfred's Music Playing Cards: Instruments
Created by Karen Farnum Surmani and Andrew Surmani
These real playing cards are divided into four suits, each representing a different family of instruments: brass, woodwind, string, and percussion. Each card shows an instrument's image and includes facts about its origin, design, and use. In addition to the 52-card deck, four jokers provide brief descriptions of the corresponding instrument families.
