    Classic tale, retold

    I originally purchased this book for my 2.5 year old grandson who was really into the wolf. When I realized that Prokofiev was Ukrainian, I thought it would make a good 2nd birthday gift for my American/Ukarian great neice who was turning two.
    Both of the children have active imaginations and the music and pictures feed such kids. This is probably more suited to older children, but my grandson does understand the instruments. I hope it inspires a love of classical music in both. I play the French horn, so it excites my grandson that this is the voice of the wolf. The pictures are beautiful, also.

    A Masterpiece

    This book is one of the few great children's stories from Czarist Russia, and along with the c/d to give the story a great atmosphere, it's just like a tale come true.

    Highly recommend

    My 6 year old grandson loved this book and attached CD. Good way to expose kids to literature and classical music at the same time.

    No music!

    The E-Book version seems to have no music. If so, it is not worth anything. Can't play on an I-Pad, despite Nook software. This should be a perfect application for this technology.

    Good for family fun

    My pre-schooler enjoys so much listening to the CD and reading the book alone.
