What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This playful collection of poems—peppered with an astounding variety of animal sounds—is meant to be read aloud together. These poems for two or more voices explore the myriad sounds animals make—from a frog’s jug-o-rum to a fish’s boom! to an elephant’s bark. Laced with humor, the poems are a delight to read aloud and cover all major classes of animals: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects, even a crustacean! Readers will learn how to estimate the temperature by counting a cricket’s chirps and see how creatures make sounds at specific pitches and frequencies, so that they can be heard despite other noise around them. Extensive end notes provide more information on the animals and how and why they make the sounds they do. Written by noted children’s poet Georgia Heard, this is an ideal collection for parents and children to share, or for a fun, interactive classroom read-aloud.

Who Illustrated Boom! Bellow! Bleat!

illustrator
Aaron DeWitt

Aaron is an avid animal lover and grew up participating in 4-H showing animals at the county fair in Carrollton, Ohio. He showed hogs, sheep and chickens for many, many years, and to this day, can still properly display a chicken's tail feathers. He did show turkeys one year, but they were not to his liking and not very bright. More than one person has said that his spirit animal is a fox, but it's hard to say if it's because he is foxy, or just because they have the same color of hair. Although he does not currently own any animals, he does watch a good number of dogs because, well, art. Check out his other books, All The Ways I Love You authored by Theresa Trinder and Dreaming of You by Amy VanDerwater.
