Music Stories Giveaway!
This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been contacted. Congratulations to Samantha, Kelli & Naomi and thank you to everyone who entered!
We’re always looking for fun things to listen to in the car on long trips down to grandpa’s house. Music is nice and so are stories on audio book, but wouldn’t it be cool if someone combined the two to create music stories?
Well, somebody did!
Maestro Classics has taken some of your favorite stories and classical songs and put them together on a wonderful collection of CDs. And they did this all for children, so they keep the story fun and entertaining.
Our favorite Music Story in the series is Peter and the Wolf. The CD begins with the narrator, Yadu, introducing the story and explaining the setting. Then the beautiful music, performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, begins. Yadu continues narrating the story while the music plays. It’s such a beautiful rendition of both the story and the music and they fit together so well.
The CD concludes with more information about the music and the composer and with some fun imaginative pieces, like an Invitation to Grandfather’s Party, that will get the whole family thinking about the story they just listened to. It’s a great way to encourage your child to discuss the music and story.
Maestro Classics has also put the beloved picture book Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel to jazzy music. This CD also comes with more information about the musical arrangements and an opportunity to sing along at the end.
