Is this published in 2000 and the second edition? Was the CD included in this purchase?

Thanks! I need to buy this in the next few days as a textbook and also to be able to use it for my music job in daycares.

BEST ANSWER: I bought a few years ago and it looks to be the first edition and was published in 1998. It does have a CD. I hope that helps! Good stuff.
