THE CLASSICAL CHILD IS BORN Classical music for newborns couldn't come more sweetly bundled than in The Classical Child is Born. This album welcomes young children to the world of classical music with a medley from the masters: Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and more. The selections represent a variety of well-recognized pieces and its arrangements make it perfect classical music for little ones. Wake up your baby with beautiful sonatas and symphonies that will have him or her cooing and moving to the rhythm. SCHOLASTIC PRE-K TODAY "A wonderful array of amusing and captivating sounds your children will enjoy listening to again and again" MOTHERING MAGAZINE "..Each piece is a lovely classic that you will be humming"

"...to introduce children to the beauty and wonder of classical music. ...music of the masters especially adapted for young ears. Presented in a playful and non-traditional way, each piece is a unique blending of sounds that will stimulate a child's imagination and bring years listening enjoyment."

Classical music that even a teenager could love
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I love this CD! My students love this CD! We often use it as background music while working as individuals or as small groups. It presents some of my favorite pieces with a whimsical flair. Even rap and heavy-metal listeners request it. (The complex polyphonic music even helps stimulate brain activity. For how much more can one teacher ask?)"
It's a keeper!

"This is, hands down, my 3-year-old son's favorite CD. We both have the entire thing memorized. It plays almost constantly when we are in the car, and my son sits in the back seat and hums along. He now recognizes several of the pieces and can point them out when he hears them on other albums, in movies, etc.
My reaction upon receiving this CD as a gift was similar to that of another reviewer...I inwardly groaned at the thought of classical music produced on a synthesizer (the sound is similar to that found on the popular Baby Einstein albums...Baby Bach, Baby Mozart, etc.) However, my son really seems to enjoy the simpler sound, and I have come to appreciate it as well (note that this is not true of all of the Classical Child albums...some retain the "true" sound of the original instruments).
We have several children's CDs of classical music, but this is by FAR the one that we listen to most. Highly recommended to introduce your baby/toddler/pre-schooler to the wonderful world of classical music."
