CAN YOU HEAR A COO, COO?

In this stylized, rhyming board book, animal pairs march to a surprise destination...Noah's Ark!

Featuring the work of award-winning illustrator Marc Lumer, the book uses earth tones and subtle textures to prime young palates for art appreciation, while the animal exclamations on each page were developed to invite repetition and syllabic learning—and they are fun to say!

This book is a PJ Library selection.

Surprise, it’s a board book about Noah’s Ark, although readers might not immediately recognize the familiar story...At first glance this cheerful board book seems to be about animal sounds...Caregivers who want to disguise their Bible stories may be pleased, while others will be forced to add further explanation on their own. Toddlers will just be happy to repeat the animal noises.
A playful, stealth introduction to a familiar tale. (Board book. 1-3)
— Kirkus Review
...Reading the book is a lively, interactive learning experience. As children look at the color images of the animals, they can imitate the sounds and motions that the animals make...The story can impart traditional Biblical content or not, as the parent or preschool teacher wishes...this is a fun shared experience for a child and adult or, perhaps, an older sibling, and is perfect for ages 1 through 5.

KOL HAKAVOD: WAY TO GO!

This rhyming, rhythmic picture book surrounds the reader with colorful examples of what the Hebrew phrase “kol hakavod!” ("way to go!") means. It highlights seemingly small deeds that almost any preschooler can accomplish without help, and shows that even the littlest good deeds can have a very big impact.
