This lively catalog of common sounds at home, school, on the street, and in nature offers a fun way for kids to think about the familiar sounds all around them. So Many Sounds is great for preschoolers who love trucks, planes, firetrucks, and police cars -- and who get excited when they hear them coming. It also helps them be aware of sounds in nature, like birds chirping and thunder rumbling. It's a great read-aloud that will keep kids engaged, and Andy J. Miller's colorful, stylized cartoon art makes it easy for kids to understand what's going on.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
