Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
A small child dubs the noises from the street and apartment house her "noise lullaby" and allows them to lull her to sleep. The illustrations are quite lovely, although showing a child leaning out of an unscreened window seems a grave error. The text is almost completely composed of onomatopoeia and other sounds, such as "Wapa-wapa-wapa-wapa-BOOM!" and "Thud, thud, Foom-pa", which hardly could be classified as a lullaby; and depending upon the skill of the reader, could fall quite flat in the reading. Also, it's often hard to determine what the sounds refer to so that they could be read somewhat realistically. It ends with the sound of the child's own snoring - "Zzzzzzzzzz".
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Durham author Ogburn croons a nighttime song in The Noise Lullaby. It's a marvelous blend of playfulness and soothing sounds. Wisely Ogburn moves from the wilder outside noises to the quiet ZZZZZZZ of a child asleep. Ogburn's books show the uniqueness of her art. She reflects the way a child senses the world, the "boom, chik-chik, a boom, chik-chik, a boom, Wapa wapa wapa wapa boom" grows louder as the boom boxing toting boy passes the small girl's window. In this new book, she has captured just the right elements to make story magic for very young listeners.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2The lullaby of this story is the familiar noises, both outside and indoors, that a young child hears as she is settling down to sleep in her busy urban neighborhood. Outside sounds include traffic, crickets, and passersby carrying huge radios. She also hears the trash being taken out and family members walking around the house. Finally, she falls asleep and adds her ``Zzz's'' to the nighttime sounds. All of the noises are described by a combination of illustration and phonetics. Thus, as the father stands at a sink washing dishes, the text reads, ``Klink, klink, plonk./SSSSsssshhh Bloop. Swish, ssshhh./ Klink!'' This pairing of picture with sound is well done, clear, and simple. Bedtime books are a crowded field, but this work merits consideration for its fine illustrations that convey and enlarge upon the book's simple, reassuring text.Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
