How to make 'Nutcracker' more meaningful for kids

Is an Olympic Ballet Theatre performance of "The Nutcracker" on your calendar this December? If so, you can make your children's experience even more meaningful with a little advanced planning. Go to the library and check out "Tchaikovsky Discovers America" by Classical Kids.

"Tchaikovsky Discovers America" tells the fictional story of real-life composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky running away from reporters with help from two children. The trio takes a train from New York City to Niagara Falls. Along the way, they learn about Tchaikovsky's greatest musical accomplishments, as well as life in Russia.

Classical Kids is the same company that created "Beethoven Lives Upstairs" and Mr. Bach Comes to Call." All of their CDs are great compliments to a Carschooling collection. They are usually available at your local library.
