Synopsis

Curious Critters by David Fitzsimmons

Hear all twenty curious critters talk to you in their own, distinctive voices. Incredible voiceover talent, from children to adults, including author and photographer David FitzSimmons, bring each character to life with fun, unique, and highly memorable voices. Delightful sound effects accompany the animals, providing fun sounds that add pizzazz to the narratives and contextualize the animals: hear the rattles of the sidewinder; listen for the quiet, muddy footsteps of the cave salamander, and hold your breath during the drumroll as the American kestrel is about to begin his death-defying dive. In addition, sing along with Foster Brown's original CURIOUS CRITTERS theme song introduction. Then join Foster and friends for a sing-along, Curious-Critters variation of Row, Row, Row Your Boat -- now Row, Row, Row Your Legs -- for the Predaceous Diving Beetle.

Reviews

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

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