Booming Bella by Carol Ann Williams

Williams, Carol Ann Booming Bella, illustrated by Tatjana Mai-Wyss. Putnam’s (Penguin), 2008. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Bella is excited about the school trip, but her booking voice is not exactly welcome at the art museum. Bella tries as hard as she can to whisper, but she can’t always help herself. When Bella hops on the wrong bus, however, her booming voice comes in very handy. I think most children ave run afoul of the “shusher’s” at one point or another, so they will appreciate Bella’s adventures. Plus, this is a great lead in to talk to students about when to be loud and when to be soft. EL – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
