Pick of the Week: The Loud Book

The Loud Book! by Deborah Underwood (Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2011)
Perhaps you've seen The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood with Renata Liwska's illustrations of cuddly, cozy animals displaying the different ways "quiet" can exist throughout the day. Now we have The Loud Book, it's rightful companion with the same animals joyfully and exuberantly making all kinds of noise. There's loud like the noise of an alarm clock or someone snoring or the sounds of crickets chirping (and believe me, having lived in the Midwest, those crickets can be LOUD!). This one is sure to be a fun one to share with your child and explore the different ways you can be noisy or quiet.
