Farm animals make realistic noises as youngsters press embedded tactile features. "Pat the cow's back to hear her ‘Moo!' " Readers can press the fuzzy, black circle on a Holstein cow to hear its recorded noise. This formula is repeated on each double-page spread, one per farm critter (roosters, piglets, lambs and horses). Using stock photography, several smaller images of the animals appear on the left, and a full-page close-up dominates the right. The final two pages are a review of the five farmyard creatures and include a photo of each as well as a review of their sounds in succession via a touch of a button. While the layout is a little busy, the selection of photos and the tactile elements are nicely diverse. The text is simple enough for little ones, encourages interaction ("Can you baa like a lamb?") and uses animal-specific vocabulary (fleece; mane). The sister title, Noisy Trucks (978-1-58925-609-5), follows much the same format, but, here, the stars are big rigs, monster trucks, fire trucks, backhoes and cement mixers. While the photos will thrill the vehicle-obsessed, the noises are less distinctive, save the fire truck's siren. The facts about each type of vehicle provide just enough information: "A fire truck has a loud siren, ladders to climb, and hoses that spray water." Despite the age recommendation of 3 years and up suggested on the back cover, the construction (with the battery secured by screw behind a plastic panel) looks sturdy and safe enough for younger readers. A happily multisensory exploration. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)

This book and the equally fun Noisy Trucks have some of the best sounds I've found--better than sound puzzle sounds! Simple words accompany the pictures so there's "story" as well. Great purchase.
