Do donkeys go snort, roar or squeak? Mix and match animals and noises to create the most unlikely looking creatures in this fun split-page novelty book. Ideal as a support text for foundation and Key Stage 1, it should help develop a knowledge and understanding of animals.
Finally, you can't beat a book that can be endlessly fiddled with. Miranda Maxwell-Hyslop's splendid Fish Go Woof (Hodder GBP10.99) was my 18-month-old son's Book of the Month from this selection. The spine is ring-bound and the stiff pages split into three, each section portraying a third of an animal with its name, sound and 'Go' in the middle, but all mixed up in the wrong order. You may even have an early indication of whether your child is a nascent literalist or surrealist by noting whether they meticulously match up the right bits of each animal or enjoy creating the most bizarre creatures they can assemble. Though, presumably when you're 18 months, all animals are such a novelty that 'Ducks Go Moo' must seem as reasonable as any of the alternatives. -- The Observer ...cleverly constructed... ideal for book corners... -- Real Book News ... brightly coloured illustrations. ideal for teaching children about the animal kingdom. -- Child Education 20040903 This book introduces babes to animal noises and will carry on entertaining them for some years after they've become expert impersonators of our furry friends. Brilliantly illustrated by Miranda Maxwell-Hyslop. -- The Star online 20040903 It really is quite delightful. -- Trisha Loveland, Born Free Foundation 20040903 An absolute delight of a book and a realy giggle-maker for small folk. -- Caroline Franklin, Newbury Weekly News 20040903
