This book tells poems about noise. Each poem is about a different kind of person with a different noise associated with them. This is an interesting tale that the kids would really enjoy listening to. It is relatable, because kids love making noise!

A book full of loud noises. This book to me because it was very colorful and the words were very bold and bright. Taking actions that we use daily and making them into sounds. ( )

This book is literally "noisy" poetry. This book contains different poems about seasons, life activities, all while using discriptive sounds to express the subjects. This would be a really fun book to read to children. I would have to practice to get all the sounds correct, but overall I can see children having a lot of fun, and being very expressive with this book. ( )

This book has a lot of different poems that include different noises we hear. This is a good book to read a poem or two out of if you are discussing a certain sounds something makes. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525467181, Hardcover)

Here's a wake-up call to any kid who associates "poetry" with tame recitations and namby-pamby wording-it's a book bursting with verses that sputter, shout, chatter, and beg to be read out loud...really loud! Well-known poet Bobbi Katz sets every foot to tapping and tongue to rapping with her infectious odes to noises of all kinds. From burps to soothing ocean waves to honking horns, noises jump and jangle. Printed in the funkiest fonts and paired with the stylish, boldly graphic illustrations of newcomer Susan Kwas, whose artwork snaps and pops as vigorously as the poems themselves, this volume guarantees readers an eyeful as well as an earful. After enjoying this slyly witty invitation to make a ruckus, kids will want to raise a rousing cheer for poetry!
