What she does to make the loud noises includes slamming windows, banging doors, and moving around the furniture. Ayt the end her family realizes that they much rather prefer the noisy Nora compared to the quiet one. ( )

Noisy Nora is a great book referencing what it's like to be the middle child, who receives less attention and tends act out. This is who Nora is in the story. I think it's a great story for elementary students. ( )

Nora isn't getting any attention because her little brother is taking up all her mom's time and her older sister is taking up all her dad's time. She tries to get some attention by making a very loud mess, but everyone continues to tune her out and so she hides silently. That finally gets attention- for a moment at least. ( )

The first thing that this book made me think of was how the middle child must feel. Basically, the book narrates different scenarios where the youngest child demands attention from one parent, the other parent is doing something with the older sibling and Noisy Nora dose something naughty/mischief/trouble.

"Noisy Nora" is a comedy and humor book that sheds light on what its like to be the middle bunny (child) in the family. Poor Nora has too wait, while her siblings get all the attention. However Nora is determined to be seen and heard; by making as much noise as she can muster. It's only when Nora is gone the family realizes how quiet the house would be without Nora. In this charming book the author uses beautifully illustrated pictures to show Nora in all her noise action. The illustrations are done with watercolor, gouache, acrylic ink, india ink, colored pencil, and pastel. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140567283, Paperback)

It's tough being the middle mouse. No one's paying any attention to Nora, so she decides to do something her family can't ignore: make noise. Nora slams windows, bangs doors, and upsets furniture, to no avail. It's not until she crashes out the door--and the house goes strangely silent--that her family realizes: a noisy Nora is much better than no Nora at all. "A wonderful story." --Booklist
