From puppies and kittens to kangaroos and frogs, here is a wonderful way to introduce young children to animals and the sounds they make. Laura Godwin's rhyming, interactive text is beautifully coupled with Mary Morgan's sweet illustrations of parents and babies.

Laura Godwin, also known as Nola Buck, is the author of many popular picture books for children. Born and raised in Alberta, Canada, she now lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-Attractive spreads and a rhyming text introduce a variety of animal babies and their parents as well as the sounds they make. For example, "What the bear cub hears- Grrr, grrr, grrr What the kitten hears- Purr, purr, purr." The language is simple and repetitive, and the rhythm of the verses remains consistent, allowing young listeners to follow along easily. Many of the sounds are not vocalized, as a horse "nuzzles" its colt, a kid "guzzles" milk from its mother, and a joey takes a ride in a kangaroo pouch ("Boink, boink, boink"). The final spread reads, "What the baby hears- I love you," and shows four small children dancing around a man playing a guitar, marking an unexpected and slightly incongruous departure from the parent-child theme. Done in watercolors and colored pencils, the illustrations use warm hues, rounded shapes, and soft lines to create a cozy mood. All of the animals look content and many seem to be smiling. The large, uncluttered pictures and catchy sound effects make this a natural choice for group sharing.
