The Sound of Music Review & Giveaway

***Closed: Congrats to darlanpaulsmamma***

Growing up, I loved watching movies with my mom. It was always fun to make popcorn and sit on the couch with a classic. One of her favorites (and mine) was The Sound of Music.

I was surprised to learn that The Sound of Music first opened on Broadway 50 years ago, quickly becoming one of the most popular musicals of all time. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary, Sony Music has released the 50th Anniversary Special Edition of the Original Cast Recording: The Sound Of Music along with Simon & Schuster’s book, The Sound of Music: A Classic Collectible Pop-Up.
With songs including My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and The Sound of Music, the CD will easily become a favorite. The music is wonderful and the songs as captivating as I remembered.

The accompanying pop up book is absolutely amazing. The illustration are beautifully depicted and the pop-ups well-made and sturdy, as well as incredibly detailed. My son loved going the book, looking at each page and making up a story of his own. Though he also enjoyed hearing the real story as I read it to him.
Buy It:
The 50th Anniversary Special Edition of the Original Cast Recording: The Sound Of Music is available for $11.98 at Amazon

The Sound of Music: A Classic Collectible Pop-Up is available for about $17 at Amazon

The Sing-Along Guide is available for free at Simon and Schuster

Win It:
One lucky reader will win a copy of the 50th Anniversary Special Edition of the Original Cast Recording: The Sound Of Music

Doe, a deer. That's from the SOM isn't it? I remember that somewhat...which is weird because I've seen it a LOT. Just not in a while, lol.

I can't believe it's 50!
