In the same vein as "Peter and the Wolf," this series of audios does more than just tell a story. They are classic stories accompanied by professional, high quality music. The London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Stephen Simon give the feeling of being present and captures the emotion and tone of each story. As you listen to the music and story, children and adults alike will be drawn into the musical experience. Each CD is accompanied by a small booklet that includes author information; performer and instrument background; some activities such as a word search or crack-the-code; or a cross word puzzle, and a track guide. The audio includes the story and music along with other tracks that tell about the music, composer, author, and an opportunity to learn a song or dance and perform. This series is more than just a story or music; it's an education as you listen to 'Stories in Music,' to be enjoyed by the whole family. Please note that the CD format is being phased out and replaced by Download Cards. These provide the purchaser access to download all of the audio tracks from the CD in MP3 format, and the 24-page CD insert/activity book in PDF format.
