Notes & Reviews:

There is no finer introduction to classical music than these iconic works for children, featuring first-rate music for orchestra with an accompanying narration. ABC Kids celebrities Justine, Jay and Georgie bring their acting skills and great sense of fun to the stories of Babar the Elephant, Sebastian the Fox, Peter and the Wolf, and Nick Enright's Carnival of the Animals. New recordings from the TSO and ASO bring out all the colour and excitement of this highly characterful and descriptive music. You'll recognise the tunes - relish the opportunity to introduce a new generation of young listeners to this captivating experience!
