Just perfect
Our seven year old loves classical music. She could sit through the entire, longer pieces if they were on these CDs. But they aren't. And as she says "I like these CDs becasue I can listen to the parts that are most familar." She asked for these CDs for the holidays. She was ecstatic when she opened that gift, and she adores listening to them. Even if she wasn't a classical music lover (her father and I for example), the music on the CDs is wonderful -- a combination of beautiful and expressive music in every way, etc. Every emotion you would want your child to hear/feel, in music -- is captured here. Plus, they are the 'greatest hits' which makes it a nice "boilerplate" of classical music for kids to become famliar with. We have almost the entire series -- and will buy more of the next gift giving holiday. Now, let me say that I know NOTHING about classical music, so I can't tell you if the interepretion, musicians, or conductor are any good -- I have no idea. But I do like listening to the CDs! Also remember, you won't hear the enitre song... But for what it is, our familiy thinks CDs are just terrific!
