There is a large connection between the story of "Peter and the Wolf" and music that I was completely unaware of.

While I did not take the time to listen to it, there was a disc that was included with this book. After reading some other pages in the book, I discoverd that this was originally wrote as music. Each of the different animals in the book represents a different musical instrument. After reading the book, I find this very interesting, simply because I cannot see this story being portrayed in any type of musical way. However, I have been intrigued to look into this more. If I were going to be a music teacher, this would be a wonderful way to incorporate both literature and music into your classroom.
