The Loud Book review

The Loud Book!


Just like there are lots of quiets, there are also lots of louds:  The Loud Book compiles all these kid-friendly noises from morning to night in a way that is sure to make readers CHEER! (goodreads summary)

There are so many different kinds of quiets. There are also just as many different kinds of louds as we see in this cute new book that arrived this month. Once again, author Deborah Underwood put a smile on my face with this charming follow-up to The Quiet Book (review under picture books). The illustrations are beautifully serene and very pleasing to the eye.  You will actually visualize the loud sounds in your mind before having to look at the pictures while you read.  Having your child close their eyes and tell you what they see would be a fun activity while you read the words out loud to them.  This would also work as a great storytime concept in a classroom setting as well.  There were so many different types of louds that were funny but my favorite ones were the  "oops loud" and "spilling your marbles in the library loud".  The facial expressions of the cute characters matched perfectly with the storyline just as they did in The Quiet Book. I think children will giggle and relate to many of the loud moments shown. This would be a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~
