History of Classical Music, The
by Andrea G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/07/2012 08:38:09

The course is excellent and I highly recommend it. I find it appealing to all ages in our family, though some of the information is probably better suited to high school/adult ages and might be flying over the heads of our younger children. It is an excellent overview of the history of classical music and deals with the most important composers and concepts in each period.

The download experience at CurrClick is pretty frustrating...I was taken to a page where I could download 10 tracks at a time (this product has 88 tracks). What I discovered when I began downloading is that though the tracks are listed in order on the download page, the actual files are out of order...they don't match the track numbers on the download page. Besides this, I was not able to then select the next 10 tracks to download...I would select them and then it would just redownload the first 10. To be fair, when I contacted customer service, they were very helpful and I was then able to get tracks which were missing and I did appreciate their service. But I would highly recommend they streamline the download process for this product.

Ballet Stories
by Beverley T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/16/2011 19:50:30

This audio book is a perfect introduction to the ballet. My young children have enjoyed the stories a lot and their parents have learned a few things also! We'll listen to it again and again. Its well worth the money.

The low rating is for the download process I had to go through to get all the tracks in the right order at the right time. It required multiple downloads and two emails to notify the Currclick customer service department about the problems. As always, they were very helpful and thorough, but it was still an enormous waste of time. I think they're aware of the problems and have informed the publisher about some mistakes or issues with their file naming. Be prepared to invest a bit of time getting through the technical difficulties - but its worth the trouble!

Secret Garden, The
by Carrie K. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/03/2008 09:49:42

Audiobooks on CurrClick...What a treasure! We had The Secret Garden years ago in audio format, but over the course of three children and mysterious objects shoved in CD players, our original copy has deteriorated. We have upgraded with the times, however, and our family is hip with the iPod generation. I admit, I have a ten year old whom I have to continually shout at "Take your headphones off!" This does make me chuckle, however, knowing that she's lost in our most recently downloaded audiobook.

The Secret Garden is a classic familiar to many literature-rich homes. This is an unabridged version read by a British actress, which is consistent with the setting of the story. Musical interludes help bridge the chapters, but otherwise it is simply an oral narration; a perfect read aloud. Technically, I found this easy to download and incorporate into iTunes. In addition, this particular book has a wide variety of resources to accompany it--copywork, unit studies, vocabulary development, and more. Just do a search for "Secret Garden" to see all of the choices. Literature-based learning is just a click away!
