4.5 / 7.0

My daughter has really liked this book since she was a young toddler; she loves hearing me make weird noises when I read it to her. We even used the book as an introduction to the idea that objects can make sounds and discussion about what other sounds we could make using things in her bedroom, etc. However, I just don’t love reading it. Fortunately, it’s short and quick, so I don’t mind reading it a time or two when my kids request it.
