Animal Sound Mix-up
Written by Connie Arnold illustrated by Kit Grady (North Carolina gals)
Guardian Angel Publishing
Ages 4 and up
Theme/Topic:Animal sounds and why animals make the sounds they do
What if a lion said meow. . .
or if a donkey said bow-wow?
Wouldn't it seem quite funny now
if they became mixed up somehow?
What if a mouse began to roar,
wouldn't it seem stronger than before?
Or if an elephant gave a squeak
might it seem to be quite weak?
Synopsis: (From the back of the book)
Can you imagine what the world would be like if animals each made completely different sounds than expected? That would be such an amazing surprise, and how crazy it would seem if this were to happen!
Why I loved it:
Connie has quite a way with words in this precious story and Kit's art is bright and vivid and the characters come to life in this wonderful book. The rhyme is beautiful and the story covers all types of animals.
This book can be very useful in teaching beginning sounds to young kidlets and teaching them the real sounds that the animals make. And Guardian Angel Publishing has a free stuff link that has lots of coloring pages.
