Swish Swoosh

Swish Swoosh

by Kelly Doudna

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Learning about onomatopoeia—words that sound like what they describe—is fun with this engaging book for beginning readers. The author uses colorful photographs, large type and simple text to introduce readers to various sounds heard in everyday life. Some of the words highlighted in this volume include: sizzle, crackle, glug, slurp, swish, fizz, and crinkle. The close-up photographs feature children engaged in a variety of familiar activities, such as grilling burgers with grandpa, licking an ice cream cone, throwing a basketball, and crumpling up paper. This reading experience not only introduces new words to young readers, but it also invites them to listen for new sounds in their daily lives. This is a great read-aloud book for beginning and transitional readers. A picture index and a glossary are also included. This is part of the "SandCastle: Sound Words" series. 2004, Abdo Publishing Company, Ages 5 to 8.
