Read full description of the books The Carnival of the Animals: A Great Zoological Fantasy:I am the "Music Mom" in my daughter's third grade class. This means that once a month I go into her classroom and present a lesson on a famous composer. This month I selected Saint-Saens, who was a French composer. He wrote the Carnival of the Animals as a joke, and even asked that it not be published until after his death because he was worried it would ruin his reputation. Well, guess which of his works of music has become the favorite!
This book is perfect for reading along with the music. I love that the songs in the Carnival are short and sweet, but still put across the character of the animals portrayed. The illustrations are great, and each page gives you something to think about or listen for as you play the corresponding song.
The one thing that was confusing to me at first was that the book says "Royal March of the Lion" is track 1, but really some other piece by Saint-Saens is the first track on the CD. This means each page in the book is off by one. Once I got the hang of that, I could navigate the CD okay.
Very kid-friendly! My family has enjoyed this CD/book set. We were especially delighted to realize the Finale of the Carnival sounded so familiar to us. Upon listening to it for a minute or two, we recognized it as the music on "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas."
