This audio CD has many great features. You begin this CD with the narrated story of Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel set to the music of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This will expose all ages to the symphony and make it educational too. After the story I learned about the story and the author, about the music, and had a sing along. The booklet with this CD is your program guide as if you went to the symphony, plus it contains some activities, dot to dot, a word search and the words to the Mike Mulligan song. You can have a sing-a-long and great discussions.
