Listen to the Birds: An Introduction to Classical Music (Children’s Book/CD)
By Ana Gerhard (Author), Cecilia Varela (Illustrator)

This engaging book and accompanying CD introduce children to classical music through exploring the similarities between birds’ songs and the notes produced by musical instruments. Beautiful illustrations are featured, plus a glossary of musical terms, composer biographies, and a description of each bird mentioned.

The CD offers excerpts of works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and others, performed by world-class orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Toronto Chamber Orchestra.

"All in all, the book, though slight in size, is expansive in its reach. The result is a surprisingly thorough beginner’s introduction to classical music." -  New York Times
