What does it sound like by the sea?

The wind WHISTLES, sea lions BELLOW, and tugboats RUMBLE.

Little ones will delight in turning the sturdy pages of these books full of sound.

The What's That Sound? board books serve a dual purpose for inquisitive little ones. Not only do they link noises to objects but they encourage the association of meaning to letters on a page-the first, crucial step for developing reading skills.

Author Sheryl McFarlane's rhythmic, read-aloud text is perfectly complemented by Kim LaFave's bright, colourful scenes. A glorious book with plenty of sounds for little noise makers everywhere.
