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.

Expressive and entertaining. The music background is soothing and magical. The little song at the end will have your kids humming along while they're in the crib.

This is a calm, sweet, soothing Music Audio 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 and he sings a cute song about this. The group of friends make their way through the trees and the grass. They crawl through a tunnel under the ground. They climb up a vine to the top of a hill and then they slide down the hill and head off to the centipede’s house for tea.
The story includes soft unusual music with a sweet sing-along song. Accompanied by unique sound effects throughout the narrative.
