AllMusic Review by

A World of Kids: Australia packages Australian folk music, in this case didgeridoo music from Aboriginal tribes, with photos and facts about the South Seas continent. Other volumes in the World of Kids series have come up short when gathering music that would actually appeal to kids, but thankfully the Australian edition doesn't suffer from this oversight. The didgeridoo -- a long, wooden tube that produces a rhythmic, droning, sometimes gutteral tone -- often awakens curiosity in listeners of any age and makes this a great introduction to music of other cultures.
