This title promotes interaction as young listeners repeat the sound words in the pictures, and features familiar everyday settings, both interior and exterior. Gift market: Maria Carluccio's stylish and warm-hearted collage scenes offer an engaging view of life in town for a small child.

About the Author:

Maria Carluccio has studied art all over the world, and has also taught drawing and illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Maria finds her inspiration in everything around her, from the knick-knacks she collects in flea markets to scraps of interesting paper she finds on the streets. She lives in New York with her young daughter. She is also the illustrator of Skip Through the Seasons (PB: 978-1-90523-670-1 BB: 9-7818-4686-397-4).

Review:

A very simple rhyme and exuberant collage illustrations celebrate the diversity of people, animals, and vehicles in this highly interactive book... Little ones will point at objects in the pictures, make the sounds, and want to hear the words over and over again. --Booklist

Sounds are all around us. Have you ever shut your eyes and listened? Can you separate and identify what the sounds are? Readers will delight in following one baby through his day in the city. This is a charming book for little ones. The sounds will capture and keep your young child's attention. Pre-school teachers could really have some fun with this one. The colorful applique-style pictures add wonderment and fascination to a story that is sure to be a favorite. This reviewer highly recommends Barefoot Books. --The Picket News

Striped and polka-dotted buildings, sidewalks patterned with scraps of newspaper, and a taxi roof cut from what looks like a phone book all combine to make a stimulating, noisy environment for this simple story. Endpapers are filled with childlike drawings of things that create sound (cat, bee, fish, bells, bird, car, phone, tea kettle, etc.), providing another opportunity for toddlers to identify. This book is a fine choice for a lap-sit or a bedtime story. --School Library Journal
