I usually don't write reviews but I couldn't help it because I'm so thankful to this CD!

I ordered this CD from Japan hoping it would help my son to learn English.
At first, I was a little bit disappointed as it contained more music than speech.
But as I listened to it over and over, I realized how tasteful the music was.
Of all the CDs I bought for my son, this is the only one so far I never got tired of.

I could see it had a soothing effect on my baby, so I started using it as his bedtime music.
He has been listening to this CD every evening for over a year ever since he was born.
I also play it on the go on my iphone when he has a tantrum.

Of course it's not just the music but the stories are good, as you probably know.
I like the way the narrators whisper the stories along with the quiet flow of music.

I have bought the books of all the stories contained in this CD.
My son has started enjoying the pictures in the books recently.
I hope one day he will figure out by himself that these pictures match the sound he has been listening to.

I got this CD for my autistic 4-y.o., hoping it would serve for his quiet time, and at the same time, help with his language development.
At this moment, as with most of the things we do with him, he appears not to be paying a whole lot of attention, but I know that he is taking it all in.
(He usually surprises me later repeating words he hears on the tv or the radio.)

I find the storytelling to be quiet calming and read in a manner that makes it quite enjoyable.
(It is very important that I do not find it annoying, as I have to play it over and over.)

There are a couple of other nice stories in there, and the music is absolutely lovely.
So much so, that I have played just the soundtrack part of it at dinner time, as I find it very relaxing.

Would recommend for any parent trying to stimulate a "quiet time" in their child's day.

A great story but VERY dragged out, with loooooong musical interludes that do not hold a child's attention...or an adult's attention for that matter!
My son has never asked for this to be played since the first time...
