Musical book

Right now my kids are enjoying this book with accompanying CD. We checked out the kit from the library and I popped it in while getting spaghetti sauce in the crock pot for dinner. It kept them dancing and interested until I was done. It has some great samples of classical music complemented by well known works of art. My four year old was able to watch the track number on the CD player and stay on the corresponding page in the book.

They start out as bumblebees (they would hover over the book, examining the picture, then take off in flight around the living room), enjoy time as ice skaters, honking cars, prancing horses, charging elephants, and a number of other characters. My two year old seems to have a fascination with classical music, which I definitely want to encourage. We went to see the Nutcracker at Christmas and he sat enthralled for the entire show, clapping for more in between each fall of the curtain. He loved this book and music. Once through was not enough!

This looks wonderful! I will see if they have it at our library! I homeschool my two girls and I am always looking for new ideas.:-)
