Three children describe a menagerie of animals and the sounds they make. Purring cats, snoring bears, mooing cows, and quacking ducks are all pictured in bright bold colors. This is a perfect read-along book for the younger set-the catchy, rhyming text begs to be read aloud. Young children won't be able to resist roaring, hooting, and neighing along!
"dePaola's exuberant illustrations in his best folk-art style will have kids joining in and shouting out the words."-Booklist, starred review
"A treat for the eye, this one is sure to delight."-Publishers Weekly
Illustrated in gorgeous, muted hues, this board-book version of an elegantly simple poem is a picture perfect introduction to animal--and people--sounds for very young readers. Every page, framed in decorative borders, reveals a critter making noise: "Flies hum. / Dogs growl. / Bats screech. / Coyotes howl. / Frogs croak. / Parrots squawk. / Bees buzz. / But I talk!" The animal sounds emerge from or surround the animal itself; thus, "snore snore snore snore..." wafts drowsily out of the mouth of the slumbering bear as snow drifts around the edges of the den. Three children, of different ethnicities, make occasional, giggling appearances throughout, urging each other forward to let their own voices be heard: "But I speak!" "But I say!" "But I talk!" Award-winning artist Tomie dePaola (26 Fairmount Avenue) is in fine form with his luminous folk-art illustrations, which make a delightful accompaniment to Arnold L. Shapiro's friendly rhymes. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
