Green Golly and Her Golden Flute is a book and a musical experience. When I was growing up, I had storybook records that I would play on my little red and white plastic record player. I loved them and I’m happy to see that kids can now have a similar experience in a more modern way.
The story is an updated version of the classic and familiar Rapunzel tale. Of course, Green Golly has beautiful and extremely long hair. While locked away in a high tower she plays lovely music on her golden flute.
The illustrated hardcover book is nice on it’s own, but it also has an audio bonus available as a CD or digital download. The audio includes classical music that is woven into the story. The book and audio portion turn Green Golly into an full and enriching experience.
