KIRKUS REVIEW

Little ones learn to make animal sounds.

A mouse wanders the barnyard and meets several different animals, telling each one, "I like to squeak. How do you speak?" When readers lift a flap, each animal makes its noise as an electronic voice box sounds off. The inside of the flap asks a rhyming set of questions, one providing prompts for verbal interaction and the second, physical: "Can you oink like a pig? Can you dance a silly jig?" The audio triggered by lifting the flaps is cute, but unfortunately the desired effect only works a handful of times, and the (replaceable) battery inside the book doesn't last very long. Nonetheless, the interactive parts of the book will entice little readers regardless of electronic stimuli, making this a solid addition to storytime. The illustrations are bright but otherwise unremarkable, and the animals are pretty common, but readings will surely be spiced up by prompts to take giant leaps or swish a tail and bow.

A pleasant enough interactive tool. (Board book. 1-3)
