Publisher’s description “Dog says woof . . . pig says oink . . . cow says moo. Animals and the sounds they make are paired up in playfully compelling ways in this eye-catching illustrated gift book featuring bold colors and an engaging use of onomatopoeia. Kids and parents will delight in discovering the ways in which the letters that spell out each animal’s sound are key elements of that animal’s illustration. With so much to see and to sound out, kids will relish this unique visual and educational experience, brimming with color and letters.”
Why I liked this book- I love onomatopoeia and aninalopoeia! This is an awesome book. The whole book is well done. I think it is great for kids learning to read and learning animal sounds. I think that the pictures are extremely unusual and eye-pleasing. I really like how the book is organized, and that the pictures have different fonts for different purposes. It is totally cool. I think that kids and parents will love this book.
