Denise Fleming is a fantastic author who uses minimal words and unique pictures in each of her books. She writes for a young age group and the story can be easily read without the words because her pictures tell the story. In each book she uses a process called pulp painting for her images. Her book Shout! Shout it out is no exception to her style. The central theme of most of her books is teaching through words and pictures. This book, Shout! Shout it out follows this theme. This book contains...more

Perennial favorite author Denise Fleming invites young children to shout out what they see in what might be the ultimate participation book. In Shout! Shout It Out! Fleming displays colorful numbers, letters, colors, animals, and means of transportation and calls on children to shout out the things they know. The book takes children’s natural inclinations to comment and point out familiar things and makes it the center of the experience. The small mouse that appears throughout encourages anothe...more

Perfect for story hour. Don't think so? Think this is too noisy for a (shhh!)library?
Well, then you havn't been to any public library lately. And you certainly haven't been to mine. Or to one of my story hours!
This book is PERFECT for getting a group involved in a program. And because of the side comments from the characters, you could also easily use it one on one on your lap.
Either way, another terrific title from one of my top "Too Good To Get A Caldecott" authors.
Love the wide-open mouths on all the kids in this book; love little mouse making lovely little comments. You could read this at storytime once through with everybody being super loud, then read it again and only read what Mouse says, very quietly.
I love to make kids be loud in the library!!

2. A book review from Children's Literature says, "From the bright-bright-bright red cover where a wide-wide-wide open mouth shouts out the book's title, to Fleming's own wide-wide-wide open mouth in the author/illustrator photo on the back flap, this is an exuberant, enthusiastic, no-holds-barred, shout-out for enthusiasm itself. An open-mouthed teacher tells her students, "Everybody loves to shout. So, if you know it, shout it out!" And then open-mouthed children of various races a...more

The story is about what the students know. This book is a little out of the math box because there are other areas that are also incorporated into this story, but could definitely be used for math in a creative way.

The audience for this book is definitely a preschool or younger classroom. The students should know these basic numbers, letters, shapes and ect. Also, the shouting interaction of the book suits the preschool grade level very well.

I would use this book for counting numbers as well as...more

Recommending Source: None required

Review: When kids are proud to share something they know, this book provides them with a fun outlet to shout it out. With every turn of the page, Denise Fleming encourages the children to yell out what they know, whether it is numbers, the alphabet, colors, or different objects. It’s a very fun and interactive approach to reviewing what students have learned.

Denise Fleming's mouse is back, and this time he is in the midst of preschoolers who are shouting their ABCs and 123s! Great story time selection to help shake out the wiggles! Illustrations are Fleming's hallmark--"pulp painting-a paper making technique using colored cotton fiber poured through hand-cut stencils. Accents were added with patterned paper collage, pastel pencil, china marker, and colored indian inks." (from the copyright page)
Andrea Carter
The book "SHOUT! Shout it out!" by Denise Fleming seemed busy and confusing to me as the reader. While it seemed like an ABC book it also had random spurts of 123's and other word patterns. One of the first things to strike me about the book was that most of the children looked the same but the teacher seemed to be drawn very differently than the children having a difference in her nose and eyes. Although the illustrations were bright and popped out to the reader the print varied from small to l...more

The teacher, school children, and even the mouse in this book encourage readers to “Shout! Shout it out!” Beginning with numbers and the alphabet and moving onto colors, animals, and vehicles, this concept book will encourage kids to shout out everything they know.

The text of this book was clearly written to be read out loud with the help of children. The letters, numbers, colors, etc. are printed and drawn in large colorful type and the frequent refrain of, “Shout! Shout it out!” is lots of fun...more
Young readers will delight in shouting out the letters of the alphabet, the numbers, colors, animals, modes of transportation as a tiny mouse that appears throughout the pages offers encouragement or sly comments. I suspect he'll be more appealing to the adult readers who share this read-aloud with children than with the children themselves. The idea of being proud of what you know is certainly an empowering message, and reading this book with children will result in a rollicking boast fest desi...more

This was a very cute book for younger kids! I think that they would have fun with all of the things they get to shout out. This would be a good book for practicing letters, numbers, colors, transportation, and different animals. The illustrations are fun and colorful as well.
Whitney Rachel
I thought it was fun and interactive. I'd be interested to see how well this one does at ST. I think it'll depend on the audience, for sure.
Dominique St-pierre
This is a fun book for Pre-K: All about numbers, letters, animals and things that GO! It's hard not to love everything Denise Fleming does.
Nadiyah Alanazi
I like this picture book that encourage kids to shout out what they know instead of just sitting down. It help kids to learn colors, numbers, and letters.
Here's a shout out: Storytime! Perfect! Thank you, Denise Fleming!

This title is interactive from cover to cover---incorporating numbers, letters, colors, animals and transportation into one title. Brightly illustrated, each page shows a shouting child who is . Excellent and attractive storytime choice for preschool/pre-k/kindergarten...children will ask for it again and again.

Update: Used this one for storytime today and even though my audience was small, it was well received and the yelling par...more

Sometimes we need to use our inside voices and sometimes we just have to SHOUT! In Denise Fleming’s newest book, kids get the chance to show-off what they know- numbers, letters, colors- by SHOUTING them out. There are lots of fun games you can play with this book: Toddlers can show you how they can count to ten and preschoolers can show you how they can find different letters on the page. This is a really great one for toddlers, who have excellent SHOUTING skills. This book is just plain fun!
Rachel Feather
Why are children always being told to sit down and be quiet? They are learning so much from the world around them, and they just want to share it with everyone! Why should adults squelch this excitement? Shout! Shout It Out! encourages students to share what they know. Readers will be enthusiastic and it will translate into their daily lives. Teachers and parents be careful... children are likely to become much more vocal about all the knowledge they are gaining. Be prepared for their excitement...more
This incredibly simple book appeals to me for two reasons: It is highly interactive and it is an education-turned-to-game book. Beware, the interaction is SHOUTING (no surprise there), but my little guy also loved looking for the mouse (on every page including ends and cover). Your child will review numbers, the alphabet, colors, and basic words without even suspecting they are "in school." Even though my kids have outgrown the subject matter--they loved the interaction and illustrations.

I really liked this simple book. I wanted to use it in my preschool classroom this year but we have a problem with students shouting in the classroom and I didn't want this to add to the issue. I was thinking this would be a great book on a warm day to take outside and sit in the grass and read with students. It has all the preschool benchmarks: letters, number, colors, animals, transportation objects. Great book!
Ages 2-6. Children love to show that they know something. What better way than a book about shouting what you know! I can see kids really enjoying this book in a group setting where they can participate with other children. I like this book because it isn't just an ABC, 1-2-3, animal, or color book, but all three in one. Then towards the end, there is a section where the children can whisper like mouse. Great for vocabulary also. A dynamic fun book.
The mouse who appears throughout the book was the saving grace of this text for me. The art was not my style, although it's done using something called pulp painting, which sounds really interesting. I'll bet my kids would want to learn how she did her work. I could see this book being useful during a body break in a primary classroom, or when students are getting squirrely and need a chance to be silly and refocus. I could see this being a Geisel award candidate.

This is a good teachable book. It effective for practicing letters, numbers, colors, and different animals. The pictures are fun and colorful.
THIS BOOK IS ADORABLE!! Ok, why am I shouting? Because, the book is called SHOUT! and that's what you do as you read shout! haha. It's a fun book for teachers to use in class during morning meeting as children practice counting, recognizing numbers, the alphabet, colors, animals, and transportation machines. Also, the little random mouse is quite funny and I'm sure children will enjoy looking for him throughout the pages.

toddler-->preschool story time; vocabulary, letter knowledge, print motivation;

Child participation in this book. Encourages children to shout out what they see in the book. Children will have a sense of pride as they shout out what they know. Major Print motivation and vocabulary as the book goes through numbers, letters, colors and then different objects that they would already know.
This is a wonderful book to use with preschool storytime, high lights the basic concepts for preschools in a fun manner. A highly interactive book. While reading I have the kids count with me, say the ABC's and the rest of the book. This a great book to help get the parents involved in storytime. This was a hit in my storytime, one to keep in a rotation as it will not go out of style.
Loved it! Just my kind of storytime book because it encourages you to shout out what you know! All the basics are covered: counting, the alphabet, colors, animals, and transportation. The final page is a review of everything covered in the book. I love, love, love this book! It's bright and colorful and exciting and I'm going to use it for many many storytimes to come!
Well, this one went over like gangbusters! I had a pack of toddlers clustered around me by the end of the book, shouting out what they knew. Honestly, this book is pretty much made for a story time setting or preschool circle time setting. There's not a lot of plot, but if you rock the early literacy skills, this one has a lot to offer in terms of a springboard. Good one!
This is a fun one for making kids feel really smart because they get to show off, by shouting as loud as they can, things they know: numbers (1-10) letters (A-z), colors (primary & secondary), animals (pets and farm), and things that go. There's also a quiet little mouse on most pages sharing funny comments that are fun to point out.
