Lulu loves noises by Camilla Reid
Ill. by Ailie Busby. Lulu loves series. Bloomsbury, 2014. ISBN
(Age: Preschool-Yr 1) Recommended. Noises. Lift the flap board book. One in the Lulu loves series follows Lulu through a typical day, listening to all the noises that surround her. She hears the tweet tweet of the birds when waking and the quack quack of the duck when having a bath. Finally she hears the Mwaah! of her mother's good night kiss before going to bed.
As with other books in the Lulu lovesseries, the story is a familiar one that will resonate with young children, who will be able to recount the sounds that they hear during the day while reading about the noises that Lulu hears. The lift the flap on each on the double page spreads encourages prediction and could lead to lots of discussion about noises and what happens in a typical day.
The line drawings are cute and appealing and the family relations are warm and caring.
This is a sturdy board book which will stand up to repeated readings and exploration by young children.
