I Say, You Say Animal Sounds! by Tad Carpenter


I Say, You Say Animal Sounds! by Tad Carpenter

I say dog, you say WOOF! I say duck, you say QUACK! This interactive and endlessly entertaining lift-the-flap board book emphasizes word prediction, an important language development step for young readers. As parent readers call out the animal on each page, the child reader is encouraged to triumphantly respond with the correct answer, hidden beneath the flap. Fun and educational, this call-and-response technique offers a playful interactive reading experience and is a delightful and exciting way for children to learn words. With a bright, retro-style palette and round-eyed animals evoking the style of Mo Willems' naughty pigeon, the I SAY, YOU SAY board book series is perfect for today's hip babies and parents.


Little ones will enjoy the repetition and interactivity of these offerings, celebrating as they correctly guess the words hiding under the flaps. Carpenter's predicable, interactive titles in the I Say, You Say series offer appealing introductions to basic concepts just right for toddlers and preschoolers

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
