Playing by the book

Reviews of kids' books and the crazy, fun stuff they inspire us to do

Stories in tune

Stories in tune is a mini series here on Playing by the book where I focus on reviews of – and kids’ activities inspired by – picture books based on pieces of classical music.

I started this series as I wanted to find a way to listen to more classical music with my children – we listen to lots of other music all the time (indeed, music suggestions feature in every blog post on Playing by the book), but I realised that not much classical music was being heard, enjoyed and danced to. To start remedying this situation I decided to post once a month about picture books which have taken as their source of inspiration a given piece of classical music. My first Stories in tune post was about Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, whilst my second looked at Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
