SILVER MEDAL WINNER, 2008 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards
Colorful poems and lush illustrations invite children to explore and experience their world through the sounds around them. The book begins with acorns cracking under bicycle wheels and ends with zippers on sleeping bags zipping during a family camping trip. In between are flapping wings, snapping icicles, popping corn, and more. Children are encouraged to listen more closely to the sounds in their everyday lives, imagine sounds they haven't yet heard, experiment with creating sounds, and even sharpen their listening skills. Written in verse with an appealing variety of rhymes and rhythms, Sounds will delight both children and adults.

Never have the letters of the alphabet been laid out in such a refreshing and unique way as this.... With fun, energetic illustrations accompanying the original text, it reads more like a piece of children's literature than an ancient primer of the ABC's. A fantastic addition to the classroom or home. --Children's Literature
The color illustrations by Brian Barber brim with vigor and enthusiasm in this lovely read-aloud ABC book highly recommended for children's library collections. --Midwest Book Review Children's Bookwatch
