For A., this is like baby Kryptonite, or maybe it's just his favorite? He's breathless for each reading. For a while we had to hide it or he would sit for many repeats in a row of a rather lengthy set of wild animals and instruments, complete with sound effects for both beast and musical tone! Now we are sure to bring it on trips where instant calming might be required. Surely those people sitting in front of us in the airplane would rather hear doting parents reading aloud than a baby yelling?

This is pretty cute. Rhyming text tells the tale of an all-animal orchestra. I can tell it was written in the 40s because all the musicians are male. There's a very cheesy joke at the end, which we all laughed at a lot.

A fun, rhyming read-aloud book. Not much of a story but good coverage of animals and orchestral instruments. Ends with a nice bit of word play. Did I mention it's a fun, rhyming read-aloud book?
