If you get one book this year, believe me, this is the one to get. If you are a fan of The Sound Of Music as I and millions of others are, you will be floored. I know for a fact how much time, love and attention these 7 people put into making this memory book. It is truly a trip back in time to the mid 1960's when this film was being made. Plus there is a dvd of footage never before seen by the general public of behind the scenes footage. Don't climb up that mountain, but sprint to your nearest website or retailer to get this. It will be the best move of 2012 you could possibly make.

The seven actors who played the Von Trapp children tell their own story in words and pictures.And what a delightful story it is-warm,funny,lavishly illustrated(the photos and included memorabilia are marvelous!),and as downright entertaining as the movie itself.The included DVD of home movies is a hoot.The authors are just as friendly and charming here as they are in the movie.And they are so delightfully chatty!They really dish the on-and-offset gossip!But what really shines through is their love for Julie Andrews(who was their "big sister"),Christopher Plummer,and each other.They all maintain strong relationships today and see each other whenever possible.This is a delightful group memoir,and an absolute must for any "Music" fan!The Sound of Music CompanionForever Liesl: A Memoir of The Sound of MusicThe Sound of Music: The Making of America's Favorite MovieThe Sound of Music (45th Anniversary Edition) (Two-Disc DVD/Blu-ray Combo in DVD Packaging)The Sound of Music - 45th Anniversary EditionThe Sound of Music (35th Anniversary Collector's Edition)The Sound of Music: 40th Anniversary Edition

... or should I write "Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, etc, etc, etc!!!!" I just received this in the mail, opened it, and paged through everything .... the photos, the memories, the behind-the-scenes info .... this is beyond SPECTACULAR if you are a Sound of Music fan! An absolute must-have is putting it lightly -- I kept thinking to myself how MAGNIFICENT this is! It's as if you have become part of the family, and are now looking through their scrapbook of life! My heart goes out to everyone who put effort into this pure treasure trove! I can't wait to share this with my mother and 3 sisters, who also adore The Sound of Music. This book is simply AMAZING!

The memories I have of attending a showing of "Sound of Music" are as clear today as when I first saw the film as a teenager. So it was with great anticipation that I purchased the "Sound of Music Family Scrapbook" by Fred Bronson. WOW!! I had expected lots of background information and photos, but I had no idea it contained so many replicas of documents germane to the film and its stars. It's so much fun to explore each and every item. I haven't had a chance to watch the DVD yet, but I can only imagine it will enhance the whole experience. I particularly like the writing. Mr. Bronson writes in a style that is descriptive yet not overly emotional or trite. His words were very informative and really touched on the feelings of these young stars. The respect they have for one another is palpable. If you are a fan of the movie, either old enough to have seen it in the theatres, or in your childhood on TV you MUST have this book. It's just so much fun!!

I am so extremely happy and fortunate to have been able to visit Salzburg this past May. Most of the locations still look exactly like they did in the movie. Others have only minor changes. This visit to Salzburg greatly deepened my love for "The Sound Of Music" because I WAS THERE! The Mirabell Gardens were only a block from my hotel, so I passed through them on every trip out and again on every return. The Pegasus Fountain and the "Do-Re-Mi" steps became like old friends. But, there was also Winkler's Terrace overlooking Salzburg, the horse bath, the Festival Hall, oh what joys. My last day I took the bus to just outside the city and walked that famous tree-lined alley to Frohnberg, the "von Trapp" home. And, yes, I did a little dance down that alley :-) So, when I learned this book had been released, without a moment's hesitation I ordered it. It arrived today and I immediately devoted the time to view each page and play the added DVD of "home movies" from each of "the children". The DVD alone is worth the price of the book. My only complaint? It was only ONE volume; I'd like a few more!!! If you love this film, there is NO REASON to not have this "Family Scrapbook" in your collection.

To the Children, thank you so much for sharing this beautiful collection with us. As much as you became a part of each other's families, it's nice to know that you are aware of how much you've become a part of ours. I've spent holidays and shared special moments with friends and family watching you in this movie, even though I wasn't even born until 21 years after its release. I loved reading your behind-the-scenes stories, and the pictoral and physical "scraps" (the internal envelopes were so well done!) helped bring them to life. But most of all, I enjoyed reading about how you've bonded through this shared experience. I even shed some tears. I cannot recommend this book enough!
