My thanks go to Liz Burton for introducing me to The Land of Sometimes, a wonderful and enchanting CD and book full of adventure for little ones. Songs and lyrics accompany you on a magical journey with the endearing lead characters Elise and Alfie in to the far away Land of Sometimes. A land of make believe where beautiful things happen with enchanting characters. Each story has its own special song where the lyrics and tune dove-tail perfectly with the narrated story whilst leaving just enough room for imagination too.
From my children
I would recommend The Land of Sometimes for boys and girls between ages 2 – 6. The fairy tale magic probably holds a little longer for girls. My triplets are now almost 8 and felt it was too young for them, having said that Clio was having great fun at my pc exploring the specially designed web sitehttp://www.thelandofsometimes.com/ I had left open for her. Inspired, I later found her enjoying a private morning before school in her bedroom with her pink CD player, Now 80 discarded and the Land of Sometimes on full volume; even a brother came to join in! I have to agree with Liz, it is a beautiful and original concept and would make a perfect gift for any youngster.
