Focused on helping kids keep their voice at an appropriate level, I really like that of the three different scenarios presented, the story helps teach Roary to be quiet enough by the time we make it to the sleepy baby! The illustrations tell part of the story in comic book form, which is a fun way to mix it without making the reader do too much work to explain the story to a toddler.

What a fun book to help teach your little ones about using quiet, inside voices when appropriate, particularly when you have a new baby sibling. :) There's a part in the book where it lets the reader take a turn at using an inside voice, but the first time I read it through I missed that it was letting the reader do so. I like that this story shows great positive reinforcement when they do a good job of using inside, quiet voices. Also, I love the illustrations!
