Book of the Month: December 2021

It’s mid-December. How are your Christmas shopping and your sanity holding up? I’m currently finding myself in the frenzy but looking ahead to time I have scheduled to slow down.

Because time seems extra fast and extra precious this time of year, this post will be mercifully short (both for the writer and reader). But I’ve been keeping this month’s book recommendations for just a time as this – The Story Orchestra series is absolutely incredible! The perfect gift book or addition to your studio for the new year 🙂 Because it’s Christmastime, we’re highlighting The Nutcracker, but each volume has beautiful artwork and either tells a kid-friendly version of the original work or comes up with a magical story to accompany the classic (as in The Four Seasons).

According to the publisher – “The Story Orchestra series brings classical music to life for children through gorgeously illustrated retellings of classic ballet, opera and program music stories paired with 10-second sound clips of orchestras playing from their musical scores.”
