Book Review: The Noisy Noisy Farm






The Noisy Noisy Farm is about some animal friends who become worried one morning when Rooster does not wake them up.  They spend most of their morning calling to Rooster and gathering more friends.  He still doesn't answer so they go look for him in his shed, only to discover that Hen's eggs had hatched and Rooster is a proud daddy!  Isn't that a darling story?  It is sweet and simple.  The artwork is beautiful and on almost every page is a button for the child to push and hear an animal sound.  I have read this book with preschoolers with Down Syndrome or other disabilities and they totally love it!  Often, when I am working on a child with severely delayed speech, we back up to animal sounds.  This book is a good way to reinforce those sounds and some children really like to imitate it when it is coming from a book.

  1. Looks like a great book! My preschoolers frequently need animal to sound correlation, and this looks like it might just fit the bill. How many/which animal sounds are presented in the book?

    1. Hey Rebecca! Thanks for the question. This book is perfect for teaching animal/sound correlation, but it doesn't have tons of sounds. It has cat, duck, sheep, cow, rooster, and chicks. These sounds are repeated throughout the whole book though, so there is lots of exposure!

    2. Awesome! I'm looking for a book like this that doesn't focus on hard animals for my developmental preschoolers, like donkey and ox, which are way too high for these kids.

  2. Looks like a very interesting book. I am always looking for interesting books for kids to fill their free time. I hope the kids like it as much.
