American Library Association “Notable Children’s Recording”
“Prima ballerina Natalia Makarova narrates this adaptation of Andersen’s tale with great drama and intensity. Tchaikovsky’s ‘Album for the Young, Op. 39,’ played by Carol Rosenberger, highlights the action. The complete piano music follows the narration.” 
“With a deep, alluring accent, Natalia Makarova recounts Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale. Evocations of the Snow Queen’s palace and a reindeer ride are imaginative delights. Music is as much a wonderful part of this recording as the narration. Carol Rosenberger’s playing of music by Tchaikovsky (Album for the Young Op. 39) adds to the Old World charm of the story. Children and adults can listen to this recording together, for this entrancing Snow Queen casts a spell over any age. An excellent addition to school and public library collections.” Booklist, American Library Association
