Classical Music For Children
Carnival Of The Animals
Each animal is introduced with a poem written by Ogden Nash about the animal. The verses are interesting and fun. Each piece of music describes an animal. Listen to the "hee-haw of violins and "roar' of pianos. The pairing of the animals' theme music with poetry makes this an outstanding CD performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This CD is a treasure to listen to with many teaching moments.
