The Land Of Sometimes, is quite literally a musical adventure! It combines a story with music to take the listener on a magical adventure.The music is integral to the story, and really it is a modern day operetta, I wonder if it will take to the stage one day? I certainly hope so! I might tweet them and ask - you can follow them on twitter via @landofsometimes
If you worry that your little one doesn't use their imagination enough, or if you really enjoy to see them stimulated to imagine a scene, or simply if you want a great story you need to get the a copy of The Land of Sometimes! The language is highly descriptive, and whether describing people or places, enables you to close your eyes and visualise the scene. The music really makes the story by adding atmosphere and creating a mood for each part of the story. Our favourite has to be the Ballad of the River Slouch Sling, I asked how the song made Boo feel, and he said "Huge, Heavy and lazy" which I would say is a fair description of the creature! He thought some of the words were a bit funny, and giggled a fair bit!
The entire cd is fabulous, and there is something for boys and girls, from slimey creatures to naughty fairies!
The story tellers voice is quite something isn't it? Certainly his voice captivates us!
There are plenty of of activities on the Land of Sometime website, which include activities for all ages - from colouring your favourite characters to downloading the map of the island (and colouring it to!).
We have been totally captivated by the Land of Sometimes, it has encouraged Boo to use descriptive language and to talk about how music makes him feel, as well as providing a great introduction into different genres of music! Boo is 3 1/2 and loves it, my 8year old niece is equally keen, and I must confess I've had a sneaky listen when the boys are in bed so I can enjoy it all by myself!
