SAINT-SAËNS  Le Carnaval des animaux (Carnival of the Animals)

Saint-Saëns’ enchanting Carnival of the Animals is a beloved all-time favorite for introducing children to classical music. Each of the movements represent a different member of the animal kingdom that will have the whole family giggling. You’ll want to swim like a swan, hop like a kangaroo and strut like a lion after experiencing this wild menagerie of music! 

Featuring the book by Jack Prelutsky with illustrations by Mary GrandPré
