KIRKUS REVIEW

Babies, whether kittens, owlets, joeys, or tadpoles, hear different sounds from burps to purrs; this sweet story has them all. Each double-paged spread features a new baby and the sounds that it might hear, “What the piglet hears—Oink, oink, oink / What the joey hears—Boink, boink, boink.” Bringing it all back home, the story concludes with “What the baby hears—“I love you!” Softly smudged illustrations rendered in watercolors and colored pencils depict the babies of all sizes and shapes. Repetitive sounds and phrases and the simple rhyming text make this a perfect read-aloud selection. Toddlers will delight in the sounds that this selection will encourage. (Picture book. 2-5)
