There are very few movies or musicals that I could watch repeatedly, but The Sound of Music is one that never grows old. Since childhood, I have enjoyed the story and music from this classic production. November 2009 marks the 50th anniversary of the original Broadway production of The Sound of Music. In honor of this milestone, Simon and Schuster released The Sound of Music: A Classic Collectible Pop-Up.
The design of this book is so fun. Each opening includes a pop-up, but each opening also includes another mini-book filled with more pop-ups and lyrics to many of the songs. This book is a perfect way to introduce Maria and the Von Trapp family to a new generation or a great collectible for any Sound of Music fan.
Additionally, Masterworks Broadway has restored the original Broadway cast recording. The Sound of Music: 50th Anniversary Edition features Mary Martin and the Tony Award-winning cast. It includes all the original songs as well and three bonus tracks, extensive notes about the show’s history, and rarely seen photos.
These items are sold separately, but both would make great gifts. I recommend them both for all ages from children to adults, but they would be especially appreciated by lovers of The Sound of Music or Broadway enthusiasts. I plan to enjoy both of these for years to come, and I am excited to share my love of this musical with my children in new ways.

I saw the Sound of Music when I was in Jr. High. It was wonderful. I was singing the RainDrops on Roses song to Hubs a couple months ago and he liked it.

Wow, this is to coincidental. My daughter and I were just talking about the Sound of Music and how my grandson (20 months) would love this movie. My daughter watched it over and over again when she was a toddler. I would love to win a copy of this for my grandson to enjoy.

So many great songs and it a lovely story that all kids should see.
A really special movie. I love the songs. They stay on my mind for a long time after I see the movie.
My children love classics but, surprisingly, they haven’t yet seen The Sound of Music. This would be great for them!
My sister would love this for her drama classes (all they do is musicals). Thanks for the giveaway!
