Product Description

The menagerie from Underwood and Liwska's The Quiet Book" (2010) is back, this time with "lots of louds." As with the first book, this is a sampling of conditions and situations, resulting, in this case, in loud noises, each portrayed by the cast of stuffed-animal characters. There is a broad range of noises depicted, from ringing alarm clocks, burping, cheering, applauding, and whistling to sounds created by dropping various items (lunch trays, marbles in the library, etc.). Fortified with the same charm and humor as the first book, this has enough activity and drama to elicit interesting observations and reactions from young audiences. Preschool-Kindergarten".

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud and quiet Louds, just as thoughtful as the Quiet Book 8 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Ok, as I did when reviewing The Quiet Book, I'm going to declare my interest straight away and say I'm Deborah Underwood's brother-in-law. That does mean though I'm not writing a review straight after getting it, I've been hearing about the LOUD Book for a while now. For which much credit goes to the editor, Kate O'Sullivan, who backed her judgement and commissioned the LOUD Book before the Quiet Book was even published. So don't worry, this is no quickie sequel to cash in on The Quiet Book's hit status: this is - as the cover says - a real companion to the first book.

Just like the Quiet Book, this book covers all sorts of LOUDs. Some are just LOUD, like FIREWORKS LOUD. But many are just as contemplative and thought provoking - and even quiet - as the quiets in the earlier book. "Candywrapper LOUD" in the cinema, for example.

Talking of Fireworks, I think Renata Liwska's illustration for FIREWORKS LOUD must be my favourite across either book - the awe of the animals looking up, what a brilliant composition. Fabulous work. You can see it in the picture roll on amazon's page for The Loud Book.

All in all, a great book and a worthy companion to The Quiet Book for both text and illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 4 April 2011

I didn't think it'd be possible for them to top The Quiet Book, but this book does just that. Delicious colors, artwork, and funny moments to celebrate LOUDLY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from Books That Heal Kids 11 April 2011
By Books That Heal Kids - Published on
Don't you love it when you are a fan of an awesome book and then the author decides to do a cool companion to it!? I started to use The Quiet Book this year with my K-1 students to help support that concept in the classroom. A cute adorable read is always a nice way to help introduce the need for shhhhhh sometimes. But we aren't always required to be hush hush in school so I was so excited to see The Loud Book at my local bookstore. Another creative resource to add to my classroom management lessons! It can be pretty darn boring to hear your teacher instruct you on different voice levels - but not when you have two delightful books to help bring the message home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun though not as great as The Quiet Book 4 April 2011
By Marco V. Gutierrez - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fun book and the illustrations are wonderful but The Quiet Book was better. Had I not read The Quiet Book I might have given this book 5 stars. It gets 4 because in my opinion it's not as good. The Quiet Book is incredible and left me thinking about all of those special moments in life. Clearly there were a few of those in The Loud Book, but not as many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and Loud 9 Jun 2011
By TGL - Published on
Who would think a book about loud noises could be so elegant and poetic? The Loud Book is full of fresh, kid-friendly scenarios with perfect word/visual interplay that encourages reader involvement. It's every bit as good as the Quiet Book, yet different enough to justify the sequel. Plus, any author who uses "Criminy" in her bio is hunky-dory by me. Thanks to Ms. Liwska for the great behind-the-scenes photos.
