I was quite enamored with this latest offering. The use of non-traditional instruments was an inspirational addition to this story. The bugs after all are not the common, ordinary ones everyone loves and sings about, so the use of uncommon, non-traditional orchestral instruments fit perfectly and made beautiful music.

Weird and Wonderful is a perfect Music Audio Story for bedtime!
This is a story about a centipede and his friends, a snail, a slug and a spider. The centipede explains how we have to be careful not to step on any of the little bugs. He sings a cute song about this, before tea and cake at his house.
Children will learn about the less popular insects, how many legs they have and their textures. They will experience how these animals live from their perspective and the importance of us not stepping on them! They will discover the sounds of instruments they may never have heard before such as the African Kalimba, Tapped Wine Glass sounds, the Pan Mallet, and other Jamaican instruments.
The story includes gentle unusual music with a sweet sing-along song, is accompanied by unique sound effects throughout the narrative and is part of a series of music audiobooks titled, Storytime with Anna Christina.
