“Do you know the sound a llama makes? You say he makes no sound? Hmmm, now let’s see…” So begins, Debbie Buttar’s board book “Llama Sounds?” In this compact, 14-page book, we explore the sounds that different farm animals like a sheep, a goat, and a cow make. Then, in the end we find out what noise a llama makes.
Cayden: “I didn’t know what sound a llama made. I knew the other animals though. It was fun making the noises. I say ‘woof’ for a dog but it says ‘bow wow wow’ in the book. I like the llama eating the page! That is funny!!”
Max: “I didn’t know what a llama said either! I like when the llama goes like this (sticking out tongue). I liked when he ate the green page too!”
“Llama Sounds?” is a great little book to teach children the different sounds that an animal makes. I think that this book would be a lot of fun for a young child who is just learning their animal noises, although I do have to admit that before reading the book I couldn’t think of what noise a llama would make either. The illustrations are fun to look at, especially the last page of the book! We highly recommend “Llama Sounds?” and also Buttar’s sister book “Giraffe Sounds?”
