Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3–In this follow-up to Mung-Mung: A Foldout Book of Animal Sounds (Charlesbridge, 2004), Park and Durango present the sounds people make to express such things as distaste, laughter, and surprise. The outer pages of the foldouts detail people sounds in various languages and dialects, such as Danish, Yoruba, Korean, and Farsi. These words and phrases, surrounded by pastel borders, are accompanied by children expressing these sounds with clear facial expressions and gestures. On the inner pages, the English translation is revealed along with Rama's ink, watercolor, and crayon illustrations of these youngsters enacting a scenario that would prompt a yuck, yum, or yikes response. Younger children may need help to understand some of the scenes, particularly why an overturned spice cart causes the children's yummy ice cream to turn yucky. The final pages include an authors' note on the difficulty of translating people sounds as well as the origins of the lesser-known languages. This original offering is a delightful addition to the canon of multicultural picture books and a fun read-aloud guessing game.–Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

By Karyn W VINE VOICE on December 23, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is such a unique way to present the idea of foreign langauges to children. It isn't meant to make your children fluent, but just to show that people sounds like yum, yikes, yuck, and ah-choo aren't said the same way around the world. The illustrations are colorful and the foldout part lets you guess what the foreign words mean in English before you check for yourself. I highly recommend this fun read.

This book is perfect for toddlers on the go. It teaches language, but isn't meant for long attention spans. With that taken into consideration, my four year old also loves this book. He loves trying to say the various sounds in all of the languages in the book. It's a really cool idea and I hope that the author writes more books like it!

This is a cute book of people sounds in several langages. It is short and quick but it makes one think about how versitile language really is. Lots of fun.

I bought this book because our family enjoyed Mung-Mung, about animal sounds, so much. This idea sounded good, but just doesn't seem as fun or engaging.
