This creative video from the Minnesota Orchestra is a great way to introduce youngsters to symphony music. Author Debra Frasier reads her bestselling children's book that celebrates the world we live in, and her colorful drawings are changed into computer animation and scored to new music by Steve Heitzeg. The Aaron Copland-style symphony includes very curious instruments (goat hooves and seashells). The 30-minute program cuts back and forth between the computer animation and the symphony performance, and conductor Bill Eddins is a dynamic host when he introduces the concept of a "storyconcert" and takes a few minutes to interview the composer and author. This first tape in the Notes Alive series (which includes My Many Colored Days and Nutcracker: The Untold Story) is fun for audiences ages 2 and up, but 5- to 7-year-olds are at an especially great age to be introduced to such music. This is a unique, creative tape that won several awards, including the American Library Association's Carnegie Medal for Best Children's Video of 1997. --Doug Thomas
