    sweetiegherkin: If your young toddler/preschooler enjoyed all the sound effects of Mr. Brown Can Moo!

A good, classic children's book, though mine don't seem to like it as much as some other Dr. Seuss books. ( )

From the Dust Jacket Inner Flap of this Dr. Seuss Collector's Edition published for Kohl's Cares for Kids:
Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do!
He can go like a cow.
He can go MOO MOO
Mr. Brown can do it.
How about you?

This is a colorfully illustrated, well rhyming, classic Dr. Seuss book. The main character in this book, Mr. Brown, is showcased making all of this best sounds! Some of them include animal sounds, sounds from nature, and sounds you may hear in your everyday life. This is a great book, especially when read aloud or when children follow along. Because the noises are repeated a few times, children can say them along with the reader, or the reader could prompt children to try to make the sounds as well. This book is filled with onomatopoeias, or sound words, such as buzz, dibble dop, and tick-tock. This book could be implemented in a classroom not only for the enjoyable, easy read, but also to teach a lesson on onomatopoeias. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394806220, Hardcover)

Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do! In this "Book of Wonderful Noises," Mr. Brown struts his stuff, as he imitates everything from popping corks to horse feet ("pop pop pop pop" and "klopp klopp klopp," respectively) while inviting everyone to join him in the fun. Young readers who are still learning their sounds and letters will get a wacky workout as they follow along with the very serious-looking, squinty-eyed Mr. Brown. Whether it's eggs frying in a pan or a hippo chewing gum, the skillful Mr. Brown just keeps topping himself, with a "sizzle sizzle" or a "grum grum grum." "Mr. Brown is so smart he can even do this: he can even make a noise like a goldfish kiss!... pip!" As usual, the words and pictures of Dr. Seuss make reading (and making all sorts of funny noises) impossible to resist. Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? will stay fresh through many a giggling reading. --Paul Hughes
