At the beginning of Froodle by Antoinette Portis all the animals in the neighborhood are making their usual sounds. The dog woofs, the cat meows, the crow caws, the dove coos, and the red bird chirps. The little brown bird always peeps, but one day, she just doesn’t feel like it. She wants to say something more fun… so she does! The other neighborhood birds soon join in the silliness and find their own voices. Little brown bird shows the neighborhood birds that they can be who they are, instead of who others think they should be. The animal sounds make this an excellent story to read aloud. Both kids and grown ups will enjoy creating new silly sounds for each bird. Portis includes some fun word play, and the illustrations are engaging and entertaining. See this book listed in our catalog
