Folk Art Animal Sounds

  Author:   Shanda LaRamee-Jones, Carol McDougall,
  Artist :   Barry Colpitts    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

Celebrated Nova Scotia folk artist’s vibrant artwork helps teach babies animal sounds!

The newest book by early childhood literacy advocates Shanda LaRamee-Jones and Carol McDougall continues the tradition of Maud Lewis 1, 2, 3 and Maud Lewis Colours of introducing young readers to Nova Scotia folk art.

Children learn to speak by imitation, and animal sounds are a fun and educational way for babies to learn the sounds that will lead to babbling and talking. In Folk Art Animal Sounds, children will be captivated by the colourful carvings of Nova Scotian folk artist Barry Colpitts and enjoy making the sounds of each animal—from an oinking pig to a growling bear! A wonderful way to encourage early language development by having fun making animal sounds together.
