Bom! Went the Bear by Nicki Greenberg

Picture books filled with sounds play an important role in language development for children and are an essential part of emergent literacy for children - but so many publishers miss the point that just because they are important for learning doesn't mean they have to be boring! 

Bom! Went the Bear is anything but boring.  From cover to cover this picture book is packed full of bright and colourful characters that seem to leap off the page, and the sounds the different animals and instruments make are pulled seamlessly into a great story with a little bit of a twist at the end.  There are animals and instruments galore and any young reader will thoroughly enjoy their noisy introduction to so many new instruments and friends.

This is a lovely little book, great to share with children of all ages.  Can be read to your own little person, or can be read to a group as a storytime read.
