Reviews - What do customers think about Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?: Dr. Seuss's Book of Wonderful Noises (Bright & Early Board Books(TM))?
A disappointment Apr 16, 2008
I bought this book for my 18-month old. The illustrations and colors are not too engaging to me, and my daughter is actually scared of the book! Perhaps the story is too packed with sound effects to be read aloud. It actually sounds a bit annoying. The book is now tucked away in a closet somewhere.
Gets Kids to Participate Mar 28, 2008
Review by Sherry North, Author, Because You Are My Baby
This is the rare kind of read-aloud book that transforms the child from passive listener into active participant. As Mr. Brown makes his wide variety of animal noises and other sound effects, both parent and child can't resist joining in. My 4-year-old and I enjoy competing to see who can sound more like an owl, a clock or thunder.
Pamphlet not a "book" Feb 29, 2008
OMG! This paperback "book" is nothing more than a pamphlet. If I had it over (now I am stuck), I wouldn't even pay the $5 asking price for this happy-meal quality comic book/leaflet.
a book that makes your children wanna READ !!! Feb 14, 2008
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? is going to be a lot of fun for your child to read--or to use as a tool for them as they learn to read. This is a great book for children learning to read independently; the illustrations are grand and the words are relatively simple. The book also teaches, in a fun way, some important words for child to increase their vocabulary at the same time. Great!
The book has a page near the very beginning on which the child can write their name to personalize this and draw them into the lessons of this book. Just don't tell them they're going to be learning anything--if they think this is all a game they'll gobble up the information faster than anything!
The short story introduces a character named Mr. Brown who can go "moo" just like a cow can. We get a picture of a cow and the sound put together with the picture is very educational. The child is also prompted to make the sound "moo" themselves. This way they learn about a cow interactively in a creative, fun way that they're sure to love.
The book then goes on to use pictures of Mr. Brown and various other creatures so that the child can see these creatures and learn the sounds that each one makes. The child, for example, is asked to make the sound of a bee on a page where Mr. Brown is making the sound "buzz;" and the child is also encouraged to make the sounds of a cork opening up (pop) and horse feet sounds (klopp klopp). Every few pages there is a "refresher page" that recaps the lessons of the last several pages so that the child can informally review what they've just learned.
The hardcover is strong enough to resist any accidental damage your young child may try to do to it; and the quality of the paper is excellent.
Overall, this is an excellent book for introducing children to animals and wildlife. They see the pictures and make the sounds of each creature as they see Mr. Brown (the informal leader) do the same. I highly recommend this book for children just learning to read who also need to be introduced to animals and wildlife.
Excellent book Feb 11, 2008
This book has become one of my 2 year old daughter's favorite books. She absolutely loves the sounds in the books.She can associate the sounds with the various things mentioned in the book and laughs each time we read it together. A must have for little kids.
