Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss

The subtitle of this terrific board book is "Dr. Suess's Book of Wonderful Noises" and is one of the most popular books with toddlers and preschoolers that I use. The book let's Mr. Brown participate in a very popular toddler activity - imitating everything he hears. From the "klopp, klopp, klopp" of the horse's feet, to the "dibble, dibble, dibble, dopp" of the rain, and the "splatt, splatt, splatt" of the lightning Mr. Brown will imitate any and every sound he hears. Infants and toddlers delight at the sounds and words in the book, and the sound effects are printed in big letters so that as your child starts to read, these will be appealing to him or her. Strengths: This is a classic Dr. Seuss book and a great first book for baby and parents. It's also a durable board book that can withstand lots of chewing and pulling on the pages. Weaknesses: Because this is a board book, it is an abridged version of the traditional paper paged one. Things like the sounds of the hippo chewing gum, the kissing of the gold fish, and sizzle of the frying pan are omitted. Where to Buy: This book would be available at almost any children's bookstore or large chain bookstore with a children's section.
