I chose Camille Saint-Saens as a composer for our French theme, but somehow we just couldn’t find time to actually listen to the CD and read this fantastic book that I brought from the library. Finally papa took matters in his own hands, and now she listened to the music for too many times to count. The music really comes alive with a book as a companion. It first introduces the orchestra and its components, and then explains every movement and which instruments are used to represent it. The illustrations are gorgeous too, and I am thinking of getting this book for our home library.
Since Smarty kept dancing to the music, I thought she might enjoy making some puppets using this great coloring book that I found online. She was very much into it… for the first two animals :) Then she was off to dance again:
Even though I am not a big fan of the show itself, Disney Little Einsteins site has some interesting games (we played them some time ago). And even better site to get some introduction to musical instruments is DSO Kids where you can listen to different orchestra instruments.
