I bought this to go along with the book. We have several other Maestro Classics titles, and we've enjoyed them all so far. This was no exception! My kids are 2, 5, and 8 and this was great for the car. They all like the story, but the music and sound effects are fabulous, and the "informational" tracks are not boring for the older two.
