Works for me Wedensday



I am pretty one tracked on my taste in music. However I want to introduce my kids to all kinds including classical music. Trouble was I couldn't see myself listening to classical music much less the kids. A fellow mom told me about some great cd's.
They are called Classical Kids. There are many different ones. We have listened to two so far. You can find them on homeschooling sites such as sonlight, ebay, or amazon. They are more than music they are a story to listen too and just happen to have classical music in them along with a story about the composer. The stories are interesting and my kids didn't want me to stop the car until they found out what would happen, and they were introduced to classical music. Works for me!

That is great! My daughter always learns about certain composers in Music at school and I did capitalize on it and bought a CD or two, but I agree that it's hard. I'm going to look into these.

My kids love hese cd's. They listen to them at bedtime all the time. In fact these have led them to look for other stories and songs on tape and cd. My eldest will quickly inform anyone who will listen that she loves Beethoven. :)
