Kids will love this noise-filled Bright and Early Book classic from the one and only Dr. Seuss!

Mr. Brown is a sound-making wonder! He can hoo hoo like an owl and buzz buzz like a bee. It is so much fun to make noises that you hear every day, like moo and tick-tock. But stranger sounds are fun to make, too . . . like the pip of a goldfish kiss and the grum grum of a hippo chewing gum. Encouraging imaginative play while learning to read, Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? will keep kids laughing (when they’re not tick-tocking).

Combining brief and funny stories, easy words, catchy rhythm, and lively illustrations, Bright and Early Books are an ideal way to introduce the joys of reading to children.

This is currently my daughter's favorite book. She is six months old and likes this book particularly because of all the silly noises that my husband and I make when we read it to her. I enjoy reading this book as well because it has some wonderful Seuss rhymes within it, and since it is a board book I don't have to keep it away from my daughter. She likes to pick it up herself and turn the pages and open and close the book, and because she is teething, she also enjoys chewing on the book occasionally. I think this would be the book I would most recommend for young children/babies because it is so engaging due to the sounds. She tends to get bored during other books like Goodnight Moon or The Hungry Caterpillar, though I'm sure she'll like those too once she has a better grasp on language. :) I would recommend this book over some of the other Seuss books I am familiar with, at least for this young of an age group.

A very cute book for young children. The book promotes interactivity and children will enjoying repeating the animals' sounds. Story time will not be a passive experience with this book!

Mr. Brown is an expert at imitating all sorts of noises.

This book is a quick (rhyming) runthough of the wonderful sounds Mr. Brown can do, starting with the prosaic (moo, moo, choo choo) to the obscure and absurd (a "goldfish kiss" (pip!) and a "hippopotomus chewing gum" (grum, grum, grum), those are just two examples).This book is short, which makes it great for early readers and for toddlers learning to talk, as well as for those hurry-through-bedtime days. It's also really interactive, so it's terrific for group storytimes, especially with more active little kids who don't just want to sit down quietly. Every page ends with the narrator asking if you can make that noise too - and trust me, they can.

I liked Mr. Brown can Moo Can You by Dr Seuss. Mr Brown can make noises like a fly, a cow, a rooster, a shoe, a owl, rain, train, a butterfly, a horn, a clock, a hippopotamus chewing gum, fish kissing, thunder and lightning. My favorite part is when Mr. Brown can make noises like a fly. This book is funny you can lean noises from it. by LM (first grade)

My daughter loves to make all the sounds that Mr. Brown can make. She recognizes which sound comes on which page. Worth the buy.

Everyone has fun reading this one. My child reads it every time we're in the store, even though we have our own copy at home.
