This review is from: Axel Scheffler's Noisy Farm: A Counting Soundbook (Noisy Books) (Board book)
I have never really had an opportunity to embrace anything by Axel Scheffler. But, with my 2 year old son just starting to try and learn and say new words, I thought (after spotting this in WHSmith and then sneakily Googling for the best price) that this looked interesting enough to grab his attention. So I placed my order with Amazon (sorry WHSmith!!) and looked forward to it's arrival a few days later. Within seconds of it being delivered by the postie and then being presented to my son he had become completely absorbed by it. The sounds are okay, with the exception of the pig (I haven't got a clue where they got that sample from but it's pretty poor!) but the artwork is superb. My son really enjoyed matching the sounds with the animals while we told him which animals were which. Now he can identify most of the animals (there are more than the six shown on the sound panel. Moles, goats, mice, owls to mention just a few) and will now take any opportunity he can to show off what he has learnt so far. The book itself is really sturdy and has remained undamaged despite my little lad's unintentional (?!) attempts to rip the pages out. Well worth buying if your little one loves animals or needs a little encouragement to learn new words.
