Overview

Wherever you live, in the middle of a big city or on a farm, toddlers revel in the unique cacophony of noisy delights that surround them every day. In the city, garbage trucks CLATTER and CLANG, car horns go BEEP, BEEP, and sirens WAIL. On the farm, tractors RUMBLE, QUAKING ducks SPLISH SPLASH, and Pigs SNORT, SNORT, SQUEAL.

Even if you live far away from farms or cities, it won't be long before any toddler understands the sounds and finds the corresponding objects before it's time to turn the page. And finally, a quiet kiss or hug awaits them at the end of each book-the best little sounds of all.

These bright, colorful board books serve a dual purpose for inquisitive little ones. Not only do they link noises to objects but they encourage the association of meaning to letters on a page-the first, crucial step in developing young readers.

Author Sheryl McFarlane's rhythmic read-aloud text is perfectly complimented by Kim LaFave's bright and colorful scenes. A glorious pair of books for little noisemakers everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Hey listen! What's that sound?" So begins a pair of titles exploring the sounds of urban and rural locales. What's That Sound? In the City by Sheryl McFarlane, illus. by Kim LaFave, features rhymed noises of a bustling downtown: "Down at the deli, dishes go crash/ Slurping milkshakes, ringing up the cash." The sounds found in the duo's What's That Sound? On the Farm are equally spirited. LaFave's cartoon illustrations utilize inventive perspectives and suggestive details, such as the soft shadow of towering buildings cast over children at recess.
