A ticking clock, a ringing telephone, a chirping bird, a roaring vacuum cleaner, and a blaring siren are some of the noisy subjects described in this in this book for curious toddlers. Some of the sounds are funny and familiar, novel and delightful, or loud and startling; but all will delight rapt youngsters who are "all ears." Full color.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An inquisitive toddler, who has appeared in previous offerings in Slegers’s Day to Day board book series, helps readers discover the sources of different sounds. “Ring! Ring! What is that sound? It is a telephone ringing. ‘Hello, who is it?’ ” narrates the boy, as he waves an orange phone at readers. In later spreads, a bird makes a “Chirp! Chirp” sound, a vacuum goes “Vroom! Vroom!” and an airplane takes off with a “Rrroarrr!” Painting in her familiar naïf style, Slegers sets the proceedings against white backdrops, the gloppy layers of bright colors recalling finger-painting and pointing to the excitement of discovery. Also available: Friends. Ages 1–up. (Jan.)
From the Publisher

"An inquisitive toddler . . . helps readers discover the sources of different sounds. . . . Painting in her familiar naïf style, Slegers sets the proceedings against white backdrops, the gloppy layers of bright colors recalling finger-painting and pointing to the excitement of discovery." —Publishers Weekly (December 12, 2011)
School Library Journal
PreS—In Friends, readers meet the protagonist's pets, parents, sibling, and favorite soft toy. All are greeted, "Hello, my purring cat./May I pet you?/What soft fur you have." "Hello, my tall daddy./May I sit on your shoulders?/How high I am way up here!" Sounds examines the various noises that a toddler might hear throughout a typical day, such as a ticking clock, a ringing landline phone, an ambulance's siren, a singing bird, and a vacuum cleaner. Brightly hued images with thick black lines stand out in contrast to the solid white backgrounds. The books have rounded corners and are sturdily designed. Though the universal concepts and enthusiasm make them appealing, the texts are rather stiff and the number of similar concept books available makes them additional purchases.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
