Length: 41 min
Age Group: 4 and up

A celebration of poetry, song and classical music. The story follows a family from playtime to dreamtime as they journey through the nursery, the park, the streets of Olde London and then off to bed. A rich variety of great classical lullabies, rounds for family singing and traditional English songs as well as pieces from the Leider, Romantic Opera and Classical Orchestral traditions are featured.

Excerpts from Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Schubert, Pachelbel and Tchaikovsky are woven into a colorful musical collage with classic poetry from three centuries - William Blake (1700s), Eugene Fields (1800s) and Dennis Lee (1900s) - with poems written and performed by today's children.

"(Classical Kids) has developed a fine reputation in bringing the beauty and culture of classical music, songs and poetry to children with the wonderful selections from some of the world's finest composers...and the classic lullabies...that remind us of when we were very young...'Daydreams & Lullabies' is an audio tape to be enjoyed by young and old." - Elayne Blythe, President-Founder, Film Advisory Board
