The Loud Book - Review and Giveaway


I have a toddler so my house is full of noise! all kinds of noise... good noise like laughing and squealing.... bad noise like things from my counter that I didn't know she could reach crashing to the floor.  Whatever the noise is it is always LOUD! We avoid places where quiet is expected because quiet is not really in our vocabulary at the moment. But what we are trying to do is to teach my daughter when being loud is ok. We talk about indoor voice and outdoor voice. We try to talk to her when she purposely drops things from high up in her chair simply to see and hear them crash. So "The Loud Book" is the perfect book for us.

Deborah Underwood wrote this fantastically sweet book filled with all kinds of "loud." She covers the good the bad and the embarassing. And with the help of the fabulous illustrations, done by Renata Liwska, the book really comes to life.

You can take a look at "good crash loud," which is a strike at the bowling alley. And then look at "bad crash loud," those pots and pans that we so often hear crashing to the floor. It really illustrates the many kinds of loud and how some kinds are great and fun and we should enjoy the noise! But also identifying the bad loud... for me.. the alarm clock!

This book is tons of fun and can really be an interactive story telling time with your child. When I read it to my daughter we made some of the sounds as we were reading along. And the fun little critters in the book are sweet and endearing. And all around great book for kids!

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win a copy of "The Loud Book!"
