The Quiet Woman and the Noisy Dog by Sue Eves


The Quiet Woman and the Noisy Dog by Sue Eves

In a quiet house in a noisy town, lived a quiet woman and a noisy dog. On the other side of the noisy town lived a noisy woman, with her quiet dog. Join in the fun and find out what happens when the women meet by accident in the park, and the two dogs get muddled up!


It's a lovely book to share, with bold, busy pictures offering lots of chances for small readers to pick out noise-words and follow the size cues to make loud and quiet noises. It could be used in class, gently introducing a chat about differences between people and we can all get along, or as easily just read as a simple, happy story. Writeaway A very simple concept is turned into something approaching a little gem through illustrations which capture animals and humans, investing them with character and likeability, and minimal text, which, in variety of size and disposition on the pages, physically plays a part in showing readers what is going on. Books for Keeps Good fun to read aloud. School Librarian
