        An excellent play for KS1 / Prep children. A simple yet very effective script with super, albeit short, songs. We performed this show last night and all feedback has been magnificent. Five countries are covered in the story, which was great for us as we have 5 classes in Primary 2 so each class was able to portray a different counrty. The children were so pleased to be able to write and perform their own class poems to compliment the story, which has a focus on favourite foods from around the world. The lead up to the show led to excellent enterprise opportunities with food tasting, invitations, learning about other cultures etc. I would definitely produce this production again.

        An excellent muiscal that was loved by all the girls in our school who performed it. The performers ranged from the age of 3 to 6 years of age. This musical gave many opportunities for dance, either by using your own choice or that of the songs. Each different song had charcteristics from their country and had music intended for dance. The children enjoyed learning about the countries and especially enjoyed the Russian and Egyptian songs. The teachers book gave enough scope to extend the performance if you wished with the information given. All of the percussion parts fitted well and were performed capably by my year one girls. We thoroughly enjoyed working on this musical and look forward to many more.

        I ordered this to use with year 1-3 children but ended up sending it back. The songs are dull and the CD offers no characteristics of the 'world' music styles the songs are meant to represent - everything is sung in a twee english voice.
