Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-A still summer evening isn't always quiet for those who listen carefully. They might hear and identify some noisy bugs using this simple primer. Himmelman devotes a spread to each insect and its distinctive sound. Though the text is simple, with just one line per page, the author packs in the information. He includes the complete name of the bug and an easy-to-replicate phonetic description of the sound. Readers will also learn about how the noisy creature adapts to its environment. For example, a Dog-Day Cicada buzzes high in a tree, not near the ground. The textual information is set off by larger-than-life illustrations. The colors are saturated but still realistic. There are enough details in the pictures to serve as a beginning identification guide. Additional details about all of the bugs is appended. Missing, though, is any notation about where in the United States the insects live, which might have made this book even more useful. Nature activities are included. This book will be well-used on trips to the woods and in backyards throughout the summer, wherever noisy bugs can be found.-Susan E.

From Booklist

In this colorful picture book, Himmelman introduces the sounds of noisy bugs and invites children to sing along with them. Each double-page spread focuses on one insect, with a line of text, such as A Dog-Day Cicada buzzes LOUDLY high in a tree. / ZZZZZZZZ, and a meticulously drawn, large-scale image of the animal, with color, texture, and shading apparently added digitally. The big, bold images make the illustrations inviting to children, while the accurate depictions of individual insects reward closer study. Among those featured are the tiger moth (SQUEAKA-SQUEAKA-SQUEAK), the mosquito (mmmmmm), and the bush katydid (tick-tick-tick zeezeezeezee). An appended section provides the sound waves (on paper and, through a link, in audio files) recorded for each example; a paragraph of information about each bug and its sound; and good activities for children. For a rousing read-aloud session, pair this well-focused book with Ant Ant Ant: An Insect Chant (2005). Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

By Wayne S. Walker on April 26, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Dogs bark and cows moo, but what kinds of sounds do insects make? Well, field crickets sing from beneath leaves, "Chirp Chirp Chirp." Most of us have probably heard them at one time or another. Author and illustrator John Himmelman describes the sorts of sounds made by twelve different insects, including three types of crickets, click beetles, cicadas, bumblebees, mosquitoes, true and bush katydids, and grasshoppers. I didn't know that tiger moths can make very high squeaks to warn bats away. Did you? We can't hear them, but the bats can. And do butterflies make any sound?

When Himmelman was eight, he started his first "bug club" in a friend's garage and has been playing with insects ever since. He is the author and illustrator of over 75 books for children. Noisy Bug Sing-Along encourages children to know that there's a lot going on out there and to open their ears to the wonderful concert happening every warm day and night in our nearby yards, fields, and woods. The sing-song text tells kids who is making what sound and why, while the illustrations give scientifically accurate and up-close depictions of the bugs. There is additional information in the back of the book about the different bugs, their sound waves, and how to listen for them. Educational resources for teachers and parents are available at the publisher's website.

Format: Hardcover
NOISY BUG SING-ALONG is the first book in an exciting new nature awareness series. Designed for pre-K through grade 3, the print book and e-book include large, colorful illustrations of a variety of insects from different habitats. Colorful text is used to introduce the sound of each insect. In addition to information about the bug and the sound, the habits and habitat of each creature is described.

This easy concept book would be an effective way to introduce young children to informational reading. In addition, the text is easy enough for primary grade readers to enjoy independently. The Fun Facts and Things to Do pages are useful for older children, teachers, and parents.

Active listening is an important skill. Getting children involved with identifying creature sounds is an excellent way to develop observational skills using the auditory channel. This book series would be an outstanding addition to an elementary school library collection.

I read this book with my 3 children. They have all heard animal sound books but this was a creative, original take on that idea that had all 4 of us making the sounds and laughing. My 23 month old especially loved it. He had been walking around all day making bug sounds and grinning. The pictures are wonderful as well. Bright, colorful and well detailed. I would say this is a fun, unique addition to a family library for sure and would make a great purchase for yourself or as a gift.

I loved reading this book with my family. I was very excited to see it has an app to match now. It has everything the book has plus the bugs move when touched. The already alluring pictures are brought to life. Then, when the author reads the non-fiction section to you, the bug's sound is heard and the frequency wave is shown as the sound moves across the screen. The kids love it and I feel like I have an app they can look at that is not turning their brain into mush!
