Synopsis

What's That Noise! by Jackie Hallmark

What's that noise? is a beautifully illustrated book for pre-school children. It describes the way five children dress up as woodland creatures and discover the hidden world around them. Gentle and soothing, What's that noise? is easy for children to understand and engages them in the story-telling process. Rabbit is tired and wants to go to sleep, but there is a noise that keeps waking her up! She visits each of her woodland friends and they try to help Rabbit sleep in their own charming way. The idea for my book came from the way that animals are often morphed in today's culture into human form. So I reversed it and dressed children as animals, and in doing so created a world where they can explore and discover, says Jackie, of the inspiration for What's that noise? The book will become a timeless classic to be treasured and re-read, for young readers aged 0-5 years old. Children could also be encouraged to play and dress up as creatures to aid learning by having fun. In addition, the story opens up many topics for discussion - including creature characteristics, lifestyle, habitat and adaptability to their environment.
