So, it was with nostalgic delight that I sat with Sebastian as we listened to the music and narration and looked together at the pictures in the book. He did not appear to be frightened by the wolf. I just wanted to know what the story was, and hoped a nice picture-book would prove more enlightening than a wikipedia entry. Not so much. I guess I need the music, and probably a teacher too.

The pictures in this are appealing, though.

I read the hardcover with the Reading Rainbow sticker, same illustration as the Puffin pb: Fantastic audio presentation with Jim Dale narrating! Loved it! Aug 02, Michelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Absolutely gorgeous book! AND it came with the CD with the music, just a wonderful experience all around! Age range: Gorgeous illustrations.

This is the edition from my childhood. I love it! Unfortunately, the cassette was not with the book, so we had to make do with a different narrator, which lessened the experience somewhat. I was familiar with the music, and last year had watched an animated short of this title from iTunes. The animated short provided a lovely visual of what the story the music was expressing, and it was this short animation that remained in my memory as I listened to this narration of the same story.

I liked the narration. The narrator's use of inflections, different voices, and voice acting made it fun t 3. The narrator's use of inflections, different voices, and voice acting made it fun to listen to. I didn't really like his voice for the little bird, and I was just a bit amused by how well he did a Daffy Duck impersonation for the duck - and a bit wishful that he had chosen a more original voice.

I was appreciative of the explanation of which instruments portrayed which characters in the beginning of the audiobook, although I was also a bit startled to realize that I had already "known" this. While I was also appreciative of how the narration supported the music, I also kind of wished it wasn't set up that way. The narration somewhat broke the flow of the story through the music. I would have liked 3 versions of this story in this audiobook: Or better yet, it would have been nice if there was just the music first as an introduction, then of the narrated story for those who weren't sure what the music was saying, the music again after the narration to "hear" the story through music again, and of the combination of music and narration somewhere in that mix - and a PDF of the story to read along with the music.

In short, I did like this audiobook. It is a short musical listen for those times when I don't want something heavy, serious or requiring much concentration.

I would recommend it to anyone, especially children. First read: This is an adaptation of the orchestral folk tale by Sergei Prokofiev set in a Russian forest. It is a story of a boy who goes out into the woods and the comings and goings of the animals. Each animal is introduced one by one, as was done in the original music; a boy venturing out into the woods, a bird, cat, duck, and then a wolf stalking the cat. Later it introduces the hunters who have been tracking the wolf through the forest.

This is a great portrayal of nature and the food chain, one animal This is an adaptation of the orchestral folk tale by Sergei Prokofiev set in a Russian forest. This is a great portrayal of nature and the food chain, one animal hunting another.

The music has different instruments for each character, and throughout the book these instruments are illustrated on the pages where those characters appear. This is great for children of all ages; to be accompanied with the music gives them an introduction to classical music and being able to identify the different sounds.

It is a great way of conveying how certain sounds can influence how a character is portrayed, and how the listener perceives certain sounds. It is also a nice story on its own, with great illustrations ideal for use with younger children at story time.

In a classroom setting it could be read to the class and then the children could then create their own sounds appropriate to the characters. It could also be used to test their listening skills, and understanding of different instruments.

May 11, Cruth rated it really liked it Shelves: Sergei Prokofiev and Janet Schulman Illustrator: Peter Malone First Published: An appealing old style children's book which beautifully captures the feel of the original.

Peter Malone's website: It forms the soundtrack for this story to introduce children to the different instruments of the orchestra. The book introduces each character with its own instrument to match their characteristics.

For example, the haunting French Horns accompany the introduction of the wolf. This version of the story is very well illustrated and surrounding each box of text are pictures of the instruments accompanying the story. These can be used as excellent visual aids for the children to help them picture the orchestra. The descriptions are also perfect for younger children, with adjectives setting the mood and establishing characters clearly.

For a class of children aged this would provide any teacher a fantastic resource to introduce them to the world of music. By playing the music first and then introducing them to story, children would then be able to recognise each instrument as they are linked with each character. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

This is truly a book able to inspire and captivate. I love Jim Dale and I absolutely loved this one!!! This is a magical, musical adaptation of the story of "Peter and the Wolf". I have seen this performed by a symphony at my hometown when I was very young and my mom was trying to get me to love classical music.

It had illustrations on the back and it was narrated too. She succeeded: I was enchanted by how well every instrument matched every animal. Jim Dale's narration was exceptional, as he can voice characters in a very unique way. Outside it's s I love Jim Dale and I absolutely loved this one!!! Outside it's snowing right now, I made a cup of coffee and listened to this.

It worked out perfectly! A highly recommended audio experience! Jul 12, Siskiyou-Suzy rated it liked it Shelves: I thought this might bore my preschoolers and kindergardeners, but they were rapt.

They adored it. They were so invested in the fates of everyone in the story; some were calling for mercy for the wolf, some were calling for blood. The music stirred them up and made the whole experience really gripping. It was a really, really fun time. I appreciate that there wasn't much violence in this edition, but I found t I thought this might bore my preschoolers and kindergardeners, but they were rapt. I appreciate that there wasn't much violence in this edition, but I found the survival of the duck to be a little over-the-top.

Children can handle the death of a character in a book, and I'd prefer they see a realistic death an animal eating another to cartoon violence, where it's not taken seriously. I'd like to find a better edition to share with children in the future. Mar 17, Amanda Zell rated it liked it Shelves: There is a large connection between the story of "Peter and the Wolf" and music that I was completely unaware of.
