What noise do I make? by Brian McLachlan is a picture book that takes a children’s concept to a new level. Most preschoolers have meet animals and learned their noises in a picture book, but let’s be honest, most of these are farm animals. What about stranger wilder animals, like the colorful ostrich on the cover? What noise do they make?
The story begins with a stretching cat who meows and a friendly mutt dog who barks, but then moves along to dolphins and whales, raccoons and skunks, rhinos as well as elephants, and two kinds of pandas. Each animal is asked the question and then, as the page turns, reveal the surprising loud or unusual noises they are known for. A funny look at sounds that will engage older elementary school kids as well as amusing the younger set.
