Although the dynamics are impressive on this CD, I am constantly adjusting the volume to accommodate my toddler. The volume range of the instruments varies from soft to VERY VERY LOUD. The narrator tells a very amusing version of Peter and the Wolf, in that the Wolf gets taken to the Zoo. However, he has a very soft voice, so I constantly have to turn the volume up to hear his voice and then down so that the music is not overwhelming. An older child might love this feature, but I would not advise it for young children.
