The Sound of Music "Mega Review" and Giveaway!!! CLOSED

As I have mentioned before in the past, I love music and I love theater. Growing up I involved myself in these things. My very first musical production I played Leisl in "The Sound of Music". This is such a classic and one I hold very close to my heart. I love the story and especially the music. This is one musical I have already shared with my own children.

I was recently contacted about doing a review on the "50th Anniversary Special Edition of the Original Cast Recording: The Sound Of Music along with Simon & Schuster’s The Sound of Music Pop up Book. Even though I wasn't going to do anymore reviews the rest of the year, I just couldn't pass this one up. I and several other Classy Closet members on The Classy Closet review panel were included on this review.




Review:
The original cast recording was fantastic. My children love the music, although I already knew they would. It is great to have these songs I grew up with, in my home to share with my children. What my absolute favorite product is though, is The Sound of Music: Pop-Up Collectible Book. My children love the pages and the beautiful pop ups included. Each page also includes smaller pages with even more pop-ups. You can also find the words included to the songs, so that you can sing along with the cd. My children and I have loved reading this book and singing the songs together. I would love to get a copy for my mom who also loves The Sound of Music.



To Buy:
You can purchase The Original Cast Recording on Amazon Here and The Pop-Up Book Here.

There is also a Sound of Music Sing-Along Activity Kit you and your children can enjoy together here!

Giveaway:
One lucky person will win their own copy of The Sound of Music Original Cast Recording cd!

To Enter:
Name Five of Maria's Favorite Things! This is one of the many fun questions and activities you and your child can find in The Sound Of Music Sing-Along Kit!

Turns out the "Sound of Music" is one of MY favorite things! I've seen the movie with Jane Andrews too many times to count. Also, this musical was the first one I ever saw at 6 years old with my grandparents--one of MY FAVORITE memories!
