Carnival of the Animals Music of Camille Saint-Saens Commentaries by Barrie C. Turner Illustrated by Sue Williams Hardcover and CD Ages 5 - 10 years42 pages
The animals are hosting a carnival, and everyone is arriving! Carnival of the Animals Music of Camille Saint-Saëns brings to life noble lions, braying mules, elephants that dance, and kangaroos that jump! Nearly 150 years ago students asked their teacher, Camille Saint-Saëns, to write a musical joke for them. Saint-Saëns was inspired to compose the Carnival of the Animals, a beloved piece, enjoyed for many generations. The commentary is easy to listen to, and the picture-book format makes this book very accessible for young children. The included CD seamlessly matches the book; you can almost see each animal in your imagination as you listen to Saint-Saëns' classical music. This book and CD create an ideal introduction to classical music for young children. Beautiful illustrations by Sue Williams cover every page of this hardcover book. Hardcover book and CD included.
