Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Classical Baby is an award-winning series that sets animated scenery, dancing, and artwork to various pieces of classical music. The show has garnered criticism for marketing TV to babies (and to the parents who would allow them to watch), but its creative integration of works of visual and audio art has appeal. Viewers are exposed to beautiful musical selections, classic paintings, and notable poetry, as well as various dance styles and unique, dialogue-free storytelling. The effect is visually engaging and whimsical, but its very simplistic format may be an acquired taste for preschoolers who are used to a little more action in their entertainment.
