Do you like reading to your toddlers? Are you a proud grandma and grandpa looking for a good book to read to your precious grandkids? If you answered yes to either question, look no further. Connie Arnold's Animal Sound Mix-Up will bring cheer delight to your little bundle of joy.
Written in beautiful rhyme, the book explores the sound that domestic, farm and jungle animals make. To help young toddlers learn about sounds, the author poses silly questions like: What would happen if a cat were to moo? Or what if a lion said meow... or if a donkey said bow-wow? The colorful pictures on every page will keep a young child captivated while learning what sounds goes with what animal in a fun way.
I can visualize the learning that can take place reading this book to a toddler. The book can be used as a very handy educational tool to teach young children beginning sounds.
Homeschooling has become a viable option for many families; this book would be a good choice for teaching first sounds through rhyming. Some examples of rhyming used throughout the book are: say, day, way- bear, stare- howl, owl- squeak, speak-meow, and bow-wow.
The author graciously provided me with a PDF file of this book for review. After reading it once, I went back and read it again and again. The illustrations by Kit Grady added more depth to the story. I highly recommend this book to any parent or grandparent looking for a good book that can be both fun and educational.

What would happen if a cat were to moo? Or a dog croaked like a frog?
This is exactly the questions that are posed throughout the colorful and whimsical pages of the latest children's book called Animal Sound Mix-Ups by Connie Arnold.
The book takes you through domestic, farm and jungle animals with colorful pictures on every page to illustrate how silly things would be if the animals we have come to know and love today really made all together different sounds than they do now.
At the conclusion of the book, we learn as always that God's perfect plan really does work out the very best. I would highly recommend this book to new parents of toddlers that are getting into their first words and sounds as a perfect way to teach them what sound goes with what animal in a fun and biblical way. This book is recommended for ages 2 and up and I would easily rate this book a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book compliments of Connie Arnold for my honest review and can't recommend it enough to new parents or perfect for the church for the toddler's.

Congratulations to author, Connie Arnold, for her delightful picture book, animal Sound Mix-Up. Her rhyme and rhythm is music to my ears. Children will giggle as they imagine animals speaking with the wrong sound.
"What if a lion said meow . . .
or if a donkey said bow-wow?
Wouldn't it seem quite funny now
if they became mixed up somehow?"
Kit Grady, the illustrator captured the humor of this book with colorful, action filled pictures. This book would be a great addition to every school and home library.
