The Naxos series for children is fantastic - my two children (aged 2 and 3) love listening to this and other titles whilst getting on with their art. Unlike other "music for children" these are extremely well played and not condescending, and the narration telling the story helps everyone make sense of the music.

I agree with another reviewer this is an excellent introduction to classical music for children. Each piece is preceded by a short narration which tells the story but does not interfere with the orchestra at all.I would recommend it to anyone about to take a youngster to see the ballet. If you are in doubt as to whether they will sit still,don't be. My seven year old grandaughter was enthralled. She loved every minute and I can't wait to take her to see "Nutcracker" - I've already got the naxos cd version.
