Format: Audio CD
I was explaining to a friend once, "Why do we teach our children to love insipid music? They only love Barney because we exposed them to it." In response, my friend bought this for me as a shower gift, and I love it. Mozart is excellent for little developing brains, and they've selected tracks that are kid-pleasing (no huge dynamics swings or dissonance, etc). My child (now two) likes it a lot. But, the last 2 tracks are excerpts from their other Mozart product, which is a CD containing a fantasy about landing inside the story of the Magic Flute. The loud thunderstorm, screams about a dragon, etc totally destroy any lullaby use for the CD and any mood the music has created unless you burn a new copy without those tracks (which is what I did). But, I like the rest of the CD so much that I bought the Bach counterpart from the same series, and that one is my kid's favorite music.

My 7 yr old loves listening to classical music. When I put the CD on while cooking dinner, you can just feel the mood in the room get relaxed....even the dog stops jumping and running around!
