The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Nasen and TES Children's Book Award 2007. Have you ever wanted to collect sounds? Well two boys set about doing exactly that in this hilarious, silly and often noisy book. Impressively illustrated and ideal for reading aloud!


The Ding Dong Bag by Jess Stockham

Two children spend their day in collecting and making lots of noise! From the clank of a stick on railings to the thud of a baseball bat, this vibrant story celebrates the rich diversity of sounds they encounter and collect. This is a picture book that celebrates the exuberance of small children.


"...great for rhythm and rhyme storytimes." The Bookseller
