(4 out of 5 stars)
"My 2 year old decided he was tired of our lullabys and so we tried classical music. Surprisingly, he decided he liked the Bach track on our generic classical music CD so much he only wanted to hear that track. So.... (sigh) we needed a kid-friendly Bach CD. When I say kid friendly I mean something without big crescendos that awaken him or dissonant disturbing songs, etc. Anyway, we got this, and it fits the bill and he loves it. I can talk to him about happy scenes he might be doing that the music would be an appropriate soundtrack for to help him drift off, i.e. "Imagine you're running very fast through the tall grass and laughing and playing..." But, the last track is basically a "preview" or advertisement for their other Bach CD about a child meeting Mr. Bach, etc, which I'm sure is an excellent product for an older child but the space shuttle launch and arguement between parent and child on the last track would wake up my napper instantly. I object to this kind of ad in principle and I find it really frustrating since this CD seems to be marketed at kids who want to hear more of the music from their other, bestselling Bach one. Why run the ad for a popular product this way? I ended up burning a new CD minus the last track, and that's been working great. 5 stars without the last track, or four stars with it."
