The world around us is filled with sounds--some are pleasant while others are not. In this board book sounds and pictures related to the animals or objects that make them, fill each spread. There is the boom boom of a big bass drum, along with the beep of a car horn, crash as a vase breaks, and the cry of a baby. Other more soothing sounds include the purr of a cat, and the splish splash of raindrops, but the book seems to focus mostly on sounds that are loud and noisy. The few words per spread are accompanied by stylist illustrations mainly in bold, primary colors. The pairings work; youngsters will probably enjoy mimicking the sounds and pointing to and naming what they see on each page. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
