Marsalis, Wynton and Illustrated by Rogers, Paul Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp! 40 pgs. Candlewick, 2012. $9.75. (Rating: G)
A boy explores the sounds of his neighborhood –from door squeaks, to mice eeeks to saxophone speaks. Big, bright, colorful, yet simple illustrations to accompany.
Fantastic book! I have been looking for a book like this, where the sense of Sound is the main theme. Not only is the perfect book, but has the perfect illustrations. Highly recommended. Now I just need a book that focuses on smells that’s just as good as this one…
