Charles-Camille Saint-Saens’ immortal treasury of whimsical pieces has been brought to the classroom in this elegant collection for descant recorder! It contains 12 pieces, each with 3 parts and an accompanying poem. With the recorder parts and the reading of the poems – you have a great, ready-made concert item. Add some dancers to perform appropriate movements and you can make it even better!
