 Part of the Music Box series of books based on pieces of classical music. Bumblebee (a bee) is having trouble flying. As he learns to fly to music, he overcomes his clumsiness.

There's a short biography of composer Rimsky-Korsakov at the end of the book which is beautifully illustrated by Mini Goss.

The audio is read by Antonia Kidman. Paperback also available.

This is a great way to introduce classical music to 4-10 year olds.
