What if a lion said meow?

Animal Sound Mix-upWhat if a lion said meow...
or if a donkey said bow-wow?

Things would certainly be a little weird if they became mixed up somehow! That's the type of fun you can expect in Animal Sound Mix-up by Connie Arnold. 

Venture along in this fun rhyme as you discover what the world would be like if animal sounds got mixed up. You have to admit, it would be quite interesting to hear a roar from a mouse and a squeak from an elephant.

The beautiful illustrations by Kit Grady are sure to delight that young animal lover in your life, while the book overall is a great resource to teach preschoolers about animal sounds and to encourage a discussion about what makes each of us unique.

Please leave a comment below as there will be two drawings as part of Connie Arnold's Virtual Book Tour. One drawing includes a $10 Amazon gift certificate and an Animal Encyclopedia, and the other drawing for those who purchase a copy of Animal Sound Mix-up and send confirmation of purchase (send to conarnold@gmail.com), will be entered in a chance to win a set of animal ornaments. Receive extra entries for all drawings by posting about the tour on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog.

  4. Blogs are certainly a great source of information and enjoyment. Thanks for the comment.

  5. Janet, my grandsons enjoy it and hopefully yours would too!

  6. I think this is such a great idea for a kid's book. I can't imagine how confusing it would be if a dog said, "Gobble, gobble".

    I hope your book does well, Connie.


  7. Cheryl, thank you! Hmm, I didn't think about "gobble, gobble" but it would be great fun to hear a dog say that!
