Award
Universe of Song: French & English
(Music for Little People $7.98 Score:) A collection of familiar nursery songs: "Frere Jacques," "Alouette," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and so many more, sung by Jean René. Songs are sung in both French and English. A review of the French words at the end of each song might have worked better at the beginning, but after the first few plays, perhaps it won't matter so much. It's never too soon to introduce tots to another language and singing the songs of childhood has universal appeal! (50 min.)

Award
Baby Beethoven
(Baby Einstein $ Score:) Although all the hype about the learning power of classical music for young children is now being questioned, this CD (which should be subtitled "Light Beethoven") is quite lovely to listen to and likely to be fun for preschoolers to dance, paint, or dream to. Selected movements from Beethoven's sonatas and symphonies are played on piano, bassoon, and keyboard without too much of a synthesized sound.
