I loved this book. It started off with a poem that had a nice jingle and rhythm to it. This book is very international in that it explains what animals sound like in different languages. Something that we teach our children at such a young age, that we think is so universal, can vary so much from language to language. This is a great book to introduce to children to learn a different language, but to also just broaden their cultural outlooks from other nations around the world.

Dog, mouse, pig, turkey, rooster, cow, lamb, cat, monkey, crow, bee, cricket, chicken, horse, duck, and bird come to life in onomatopoeic sounds and vibrant collages. Author cleverly rhymes "anguish" with "language" and invites readers to make up their own sounds after listening to the animals. Illustrator thanks Eric Carle for sharing his technique.

This is a great book for elementary aged students to experience how sounds can be represented differently in other countries. I can easily see a student that has come to the US be excited when they hear their first language being represented in the book.

Interesting lists of animal sounds from various countries. Adorable illustrations. Not very fun to read aloud, as it is merely a book full of lists.
