How cute is this?

What a cute book and a cute way to introduce opera to young students; the illustrations are wonderful and the CD that accompanies the book is terrific. No, it isn’t a book that would be used to introduce opera to students older than second grade, but the little ones have great fun singing along with the narrators: “What seems to be the problem here”? “I can’t eat the soup”! I use the book as a spring-board to teach facts about opera. I also like the book’s non-traditional illustrations, especially of the president of the United States. The first time that the students see a female in the role, they say “It’s a girl”! My students keep asking to hear the book!

There’s nothing like watching a roomful of three year olds dramatically sing

First heard this at our preschool library hour. There’s nothing like watching a roomful of three year olds dramatically sing, “I can’t eat my soup!” over and over. Hilarious! Ordered it that same day! Our granddaughters love it and are making up their own versions.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

I love reading this book. Even without listening to the cd first, I automatically used different voices and sang the lyrics.

Great story, the kids loved it,by the end of the story everyone was singing I can’t eat the soooouuuuup. They really enjoyed the characters and trying to figure out why he couldn’t eat his soup.

A lot of fun.

This book comes with a CD. My daughter loves it. Sometimes we use the CD and sing along, sometimes we sing on our own. Either way, my 3 year old ends up laughing hysterically. We have a great time with this book. I especially like that the President in the book is a woman. Nice message for the kids.

Class favorite

Used this with my kindergarten music classes. They LOVED it, and asked to hear it a second time. Would highly recommend it to anyone with young children.

We first saw it at a children’s program of the Roanoke Symphony and knew right away that it was perfect for our grand daughter

It is an outstanding and unique book. Our grand daughter (3 1/2) wants to read and sing it every day. We first saw it at a children’s program of the Roanoke Symphony and knew right away that it was perfect for our grand daughter.
