Animal Sounds Set 1 – School Library Journal
These books are brief and playful introductions to each animal, with their noises used as a unifying device. The rhyming texts are presented in a large, clear font that stands out against the colorful photos. Informational inserts are on a higher reading level. . . [and] the layout and design [are] excellent. The pictures enhance the text; the animals have been photographed creatively–sometimes up close, sometimes off-kilter, but always at their best. Each book has a fun “Animal Sounds Around the World” glossary that notes that volume’s animal sound in English, German, Japanese, French, Greek, and Spanish. This is a useful series for classroom libraries and for beefing up nonfiction easy-reader collections.
