I like this book for two big reasons. First, the onomatopoeia words in the book is a great tool to teach vowel sounds, blends and digraphs. For emerging readers, these initial phonics concepts are key to success in future reading. Words like Blurp, Boom, Eek, Slurp, are all funny to read, because the make the sound the say but are easy to sound out. In this book they are writing in crazy font that is big, bold and colorful that grab the readers attention and allowing to really see the blends of letters making the sound and written word. Another reason I like this book is its focus on sight words. These learn to read books are authentic enough to be enjoyed by readers while still reinforcing simple but important vocab. The overall theme of the book is that all animals and objects make different sounds. ( )

Our class enjoyed this book and the sounds we created right along side Mr. Brown. Again, we noted the end pages that gave us a glimpse inside what noises we would be re-creating. The questioning offered through, "how about you?" allowed us to join in and become part of the story. ( )

I liked this book for a variety of reasons. This book asks many questions throughout the story, which creates an interesting interactive aspect for the reader. For example after Mr. Brown makes a sound the author will ask the question, “how about you?” Another highlight of this book is the style of the font. Each sound that Mr. Brown makes is shown by a change in the size, color, and style of font. This use of font helps to capture the reader’s attention and highlight the differences between each sound. The message of this story is to try new things because you never know what you can do until you try. In the text, Mr. Brown attempts to copy a variety of different sounds made by animals, machines, and household items. He did not know he was capable of making all of these crazy sounds until he tried. This encourages readers to try new things and explore the world around them. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679882820, Board book)

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
