The Napping House "Musical" CD
The hardcover which I received to review features a "musical" CD. The CD includes a reading of the picture book (complete with "special" effects.) It also features six "songs" inspired by the classic story by Audrey Wood. These songs include: Rainy Day Song, Sweet Dreams, The Napping House Song, Wake-Up Jamboree, Shoes Off, Shoes On, and Catch a Piece of the Rainbow. Perhaps I would have been less hopeful if I'd realized the music/lyrics are all copyrighted in the late 80s.
I was disappointed--to put it nicely. I was actually shocked at how horrible it was. It seems to get worse with each song. Just when you think it can't get much worse. Well, it does.
