LoveReading View on Sing Like a Whale Learn how to make a noise like the animals do!

Hoot like an owl, howl like a wolf, and sing like a whale.

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month August 2021

The perfect book for everyone to join in! Each of the beautifully illustrated double-page spreads introduces one of 12 animals or birds describing the special noises they make – and the very different reasons they make them. When humpback whales want to call to their whale friends they sing long and low through the water but when a lion roars his fearsome roar he is boasting just how strong his is! When an owl hoots its distinctive hoot he’s telling other owls to stay away from his special tree while a gibbon, swinging through the trees, often calls out loudly to tell his friends to come and share the fruit he has found. Join each of these creatures – and more – by following the fun and engaging illustrations on every spread. Soon readers and listeners will be whooping and whinnying and hissing and squeaking just like the characters in the pictures!
