Winners #40 and #41
Wow, both of this week’s winners are repeat winners. Such is the opulent life of people who participate.
Addy from Perrysburg, Ohio wins The Story of Swan Lake a wonderful introduction to classical music.
Itâ€™s the narrated music of
Tchaikovskyâ€™s famous ballet as maestro Stephen Simon conducts
the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The CD also
includes helpful background information and an activity guide.
Addy reports: "I am excited about the Swan Lake CD. I have a house full of girls and my 4 year old is a budding ballerina…well she takes lessons at the YMCA and loves the Bella Dancerella series…" And when asked what makes Perrysburg great for raising kids…. "In my town the best thing in the summer is the Mr. Freeze (a walk-up ice cream joint) turtle sundae and the fun playground there. We also love the Toledo Zoo and the toddler time at our city pool every morning…and lastly all the YMCA summer camps."
You really can’t go wrong with any of the CDs. Grammer produces some of our favorite children’s songs.
Jeffery reports that "Bloomington has a small town feel with big
culture in a great location. Wefeel safe and secure here, and when
we’re out we bump into people we know. Yet with the university, we can
expose our son to religion, culture, food,
sports, and academics."
These two winners were randomly selected from comments
posted anywhere on Thingamababy between July 5 and July 11 in the Thinga-Appreciation Giveaways #10 and #12. Contest #10 is now concluded. Look for a new contest this week. Thanks for participating on Thingamababy.
