Very well written and illustrated - for children under 3
This book is a fair lesson learner for how certain noises are not always appropriate. While I can see this as a tool to work with young children I also feel it could have been better. The lessons seemed glossed over and the learning process way too exaggerated. The pictures were cute, some funny even. Tumford's expressions give him a great personality. Overall, not a bad book. A child might have some fun with it, but it doesn't seem like it will make the favorite list of any child or parent I know of. However, a parent may embellish on the story some to make it more educationally successful. So, overall, an okay read.
