The is a wonderful book to read to your 2 – 5 year olds. A fun way to learn animal sounds. This is 52 pages long, and you will need to read this to your child.
It’s spring and everywhere birds are calling out to each other. But one bird has forgotten which sound to make. He tries “Woof,” and meets a dog, who encourages him to try “Oink,” with the expected result. Moo, Hee-Haw, Baa, Meow–each successive call adds another animal friend to the page. Will the young bird find another bird friend? As young readers are introduced to each type of animal and their sounds, Hendrik Jonas’s clever illustrations grow increasingly crowded. The result is a beautiful celebration of friendship that will delight young children everywhere.
“Jonas renders the animals with expressive eyes, streaky color lines, and collage elements. Along with the cast of kind barnyard animals, readers will enthusiastically take part in this gentle read aloud, in which the work of finding one’s voice can also mean finding friends.” -Publishers Weekly
