Blueberries for Sal
(by Robert McCloskey, Puffin $7.99 Score:) In this classic mix-up, a mother bear and cub get separated, as do a mother-and-child duo. All's well that ends well. This no-frills set has no big-name stars, but beginning readers can follow the text or flip the tape for lively activity songs related to bears and berries. This series includes many other classics.

The Classical Kids Collection

2001 Awards
Classical Child
(MetroMusic $15.95 Score:) Selections are by turns as playful as "Papagena!" from The Magic Flute, as powerful as the "Anvil Chorus" from Il Trovatore, as heavenly as the "Flower Duet" from Lakme. What a splendid way to introduce young listeners to the opera!

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.
