Melody Bear’s story books
In Book 1 Melody Bear attends her first dancing class and finds that it is difficult to get the dance movements right, but she keeps on trying and trying.
In Book 2 Melody Bear tries to play different musical instruments and finds inspiration to dance to the different sounds of the violin, penny whistle, saxophone and maracas. The CD has amusing musical inserts of Melody Bear’s attempts to play instruments followed by Eugene Kulikov’s imaginative compositions for children to dance to as mermaids, birds, robots and carnival dancers.
In Book 3 Melody Bear is on her way to her dancing class, but whose footprints is she following? Join Melody Bear as she discovers who has been splashing in the puddles, swinging on the swing and picking all the daisies in the park.
Each book comes with a CD so everyone can dance along to Melody Bear’s original, inspirational music composed by Eugene Kulikov.
