Today is storyteller Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, and here's a great way to celebrate his legacy: the soundtrack to Danny Kaye's 1952 film Hans Christian Andersen. Although the movie isn't a true portrayal of Andersen's life, Kaye makes it fun and engaging with songs like "Anywhere I Wander," "The Ugly Duckling," and "Wonderful Copenhagen."
The songs from the long-out-of-print Hans Christian Andersen album are now available on iTunes, so you can sing along with your family today. Happy Birthday, Hans Christian Andersen!
