Review: Beethoven's Wig 3

The third installment in the Beethoven's Wig series includes great classics like the Toreador Song from Carmen, William Tell Overture, Funeral March of a Marionette, Dance of the Reed Flutes from The Nutcracker Suite, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

These are songs that many children are already familiar with thanks to cartoons and Christmas favorites. Our children (and we as parents) enjoyed this CD, but the lyrics were not as clever as those in Beethoven's Wig 1 & 2. They just didn't catch in our minds the way the others did. Our girls will sing the silly words from the first two volumes but struggle to remember the words of the third volume.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say this is a 6 while the first two were 8's or 9's. Definitely worth checking out from the library, but maybe forgo buying it until the children have listened to enough that you're sure they will continue to do so.
