Buy It Here

At a glance:


  • Vibrant colors
  • Actually fun to make the animal noises
  • Cute, simple drawings


  • It’s the nature of the book type, but I wish it were longer


Since we have a new baby in the house, the board books have, once again, been making an appearance.  Sometimes, I feel like board books can get repetitive. Yes, I know that that is the point—repetition for the baby.  But I can only read so many “this is a square and this is a triangle” books before I want to pull my eyes out. Every once in a while though, I’ll run into one that is refreshing in its repetition.

Recently, I stumbled onto Thomas Flintham’s Animal Noises. Can you guess what it’s about? Yep. Barn yard animals and the noises they make. But the text is written in such a way that it is actually fun to make all the noises—my 8 month old seems to enjoy the sounds. But what really makes this book shine are the vibrant colors. The colors are super eye catching and brilliant. They just make me happy. The illustrations themselves are really cute too. I think most parents and babies will get a lot of mileage out of this book.
