Curious Baby: Music Play A Book and CD

Curious Baby: Music Play: A Book and CD. "By" H.A. Rey. 2009. (September 2009). Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 10 pages.

George hears a song...

...and so can your little ones. In Curious Baby: Music Play, little ones are introduced to classical music selections from Mozart and Bach. (Three from Mozart. Two from Bach. To be precise.) The music is played by the Christy Oboe Quartet.

In addition to the music, the book offers a few quick verses about George appreciating music all day long and into the night...

High note, low note,
soft note, sweet note.
George taps along
to a gentle, rocking,
rolling song.
This book also offers tips to parents on how to "laugh, listen, and learn" with their curious babies.

Tips such as
Use your voice, by humming with the melody, to help your baby distinguish the difference between high and low notes, quick and slow notes.
