What child doesn't want to use their outside voice inside once in awhile. If 2 1/2-3 year olds were our reviewers this book would get all 5 stars. Highly recommended by preschool teachers, a fun book that needs more attention. Ellie's Feb. 5 stars
Logan Mikesell
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.

Shout! Shout it out!

Have a room full of energized children that need to get it out? Not afraid of a little screaming? Then this is the book for you. It covers numbers, letters, colors, and common animals.

It breaks these concepts into sections, and each section starts with ,"Shout! Shout! Shout it out!" Then the children get to shout out the numbers/letters/colors/animals on the page.

Obviously this book is for children who already know these concepts. It's more a review of what they know than a

Shout! Shout it out!:

In this book, children are encouraged to shout out what they are thinking and different things like the alphabet or numbers. This was a decent book, but it was definitely not my favorite. I don't have a true reason why I didn't enjoy it as much as other books, but it just didn't appeal to me like some other children's books have. I think it has a good meaning behind it though. Many times students are told to sit still and quietly in the classroom all day long and I am a stro
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.

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

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

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)

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
Children are encouraged to shout out 1-10, the abc's, colors, animals and vehicles. Bright, vivid illustrations will draw children in.

I'm conflicted about this book. I think it would be more useful as an at-home book. Having most of the concepts in one book with no transitions between them seems very confusing.

As much as I love shouting in the library I will not be using this book for storytime.

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

Good idea: Checking this book out from the library yesterday.

Bad idea: Reading it last night at bedtime.

My six-year-old son had so much fun shouting the words, he almost forgot that he was reading them himself. Because the illustrations are so big and vibrant, this book would work really well in a group setting. Just not at bedtime.

"Shout Shout Shout it Out!" is a picture book for children ages 2-6. The book is delightfully illustrated and tells children if they know something to shout it out. The book discusses your alphabet, numbers, colors and shows children to be confident when they know something. another good read!

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.

This is such a fun alphabet book because it encourages kids to say the letters out loud. Not only letters either, but numbers, colors, and animals too! I really like this book because it covers so many common concepts that very young children need practice on.

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.

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!

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
