This is such a fun book to read with children. Mr. Brown can make all sorts of funny sounds and children are encouraged to repeat the sounds as well.

This book goes through the many different sounds that Mr. Brown can make. My children love this book and try to read it along with me. This book could be used in a classroom to teach about sounds and rhyming

The book is about a man named Mr. Brown. He makes all of these sounds, then the narrator asks if you can make the same sounds as Mr. Brown. This book is a great book of Dr. Seuss. It is a great book to engage children and learn about different sounds for kindergarten.

This has been a favorite of mine since I was little and now I read it to my niece all the time. The use of onomatopoeias makes this book really fun to read. This book would also be great to introduce onomatopoeias, which make it for all ages!

As a child, I absolutely loved Dr. Seuss (then again, who doesn't?) and always sought out his books at my local library. I don't recall reading this title back then, but I've shared it many times with kids in my life as an adult. I love this book because it's so simple yet so engaging. Mr. Brown

can make numerous noises, including various animals ones like "moo" plus inanimate ones like a clock's "tick tock." The text encourages the reader to try making these noises as well, thus making the book an interactive one. Because the interaction called for is very basic, even the youngest readers (I've shared this with 1- and 2-year-olds in the past) can get involved.

Cute book of sounds for the little ones to imitate. I love Dr. Suess. He teaches without us realizing it.
