    sweetiegherkin: If your young toddler/preschooler enjoyed all the sound effects of Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?, then your older child will love Gerald McBoing Boing, which adds some more story to the silly sounds.

Mr. Brown can make an abundance of sounds that we hear in our everyday lives. ( )

A classic children's book which introduces onomatopoeia with many noises and rhyme! The reader can participate with Mr. Brown, making different animal sounds. ( )

Mr. Brown can imitate the sounds of animals and objects. This is probably one of my least favorite of Suess. ( )

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

Mr. Brown is an expert at imitating all sorts of noises. There isn't a sound Mr. Brown can't do, from a hippo's gumchewing to a goldfish's kiss. The noisemakers are graphically illustrated and the "sound effects" are printed in big lettering.
