When you uncover your ears, what do you hear? Birds singing, cats meowing, cars honking, and a whole lot more.
When you cover your ears, you can’t hear a thing. Uncover them, and you might hear a bird sing. Or maybe you’ll hear daddy yawning, or mommy cooking, or the cat meowing at the window. You might also hear the phone ringing, cars honking, sirens wailing, music playing, and a whole lot more.
What sounds do you hear when you stop to listen? Are they like the noises in this story, or are they different? Come along for a journey through the wonderful sense of sounds, where each squeak and clank is a clue about the world—and the people—living all around us.
What Do You Hear? is a classic vocabulary primer, a simple introduction to the sense of hearing. The story features multigenerational families and the noise of living in (or near) a busy city. Written by Harriet Ziefert, illustrated by Luana Rinaldo, and published by Brain Food Kids.
