“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!”

 

Parent’s comments:

 

“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?”
