We were lucky enough to receive the Peter and the Wolf CD in the mail in exchange for my review as part of the TOS Crew. I immediately flashbacked to elementary school where I was first introduced to this charming story. I was excited to expose my kids to it.

What did we think?
I thought this product was excellent! This is a multi-faceted CD with much more than just the story of Peter and the Wolf. I loved that the CD came with an activity booklet with additional information about the story, composer (Sergei Prokofiev) and musical piece. It felt like a complete music lesson in itself.
Although my son is a bit too young for the activities, I thought they were wonderfully created. My 4 year old was very curious about the different instruments and he listened very intensely trying to follow the story and the characters. I definitely hope to add more of these to our CD library!
Also worth checking out is this great page to help you incorporate music into your family. This company is really devoted to promoting music in the family, and what’s not to love about that?
