Maria von Trapp writes, "People often tell me, 'We used to sing at home.' Let's forget about 'used to' and sing again. Sing, sing, sing!" We're thrilled to offer this collection of old Austrian folk tunes translated into English, original artwork, photographs, and stories from Maria's childhood, her life in the Trapp Family Singers, and her missions work. Her great nieces and nephew lead the learning with an accompanying music CD.
The book serves as a connection to introducing children to The Sound of Music, the movie about her family and a window into the atrocities of World War II.
