She also sent me some posts and I really loved the one I show below. I donated it to our local playgroup to put up in the music center so it can be enjoyed by more than my children (you can purchase the poster for $10 as well.) The text at the bottom identifies all the instruments from around the world that are shown in the photos with name and country of origin.
