Animal Sound Books

Many kids love animals and making the different animal sounds. Although our daughter is making big strides in her vocabulary she hasn’t mastered many animal sounds. I thought one way she could learn new sounds is by reading about them in books. We love adding new books to our library. Now we just need to get our busy toddler to sit still for longer than 30 seconds to read to her. Another mom recently shared with a great tip with me: read to your children in the bathtub! It’s one of the only times where they sit still and you can create fun memories doing this together. I thought I would share a list of some of our favorite animal sound books that we’ve found at the library and have at home.

Noisy Farm (My First Touch and Feel Sound Book): Our daughter loves interactive books so this book is perfect. The buttons are somewhat hard to push for a young baby, but I love the real animal pictures and the fun animal sounds.

Clifford’s Animal Sounds: I loved Clifford growing up so we love this book about his trip to the farm. It’s a classic book with numerous animal sounds.

Pat the Pet (Lift-the-Flap): This is a classic book with a fun life the flap twist. Our daughter loves guessing what sound each animal makes by lifting the flap to find out.

Barnyard Dance!Sandra Boynton books are so much fun and we love this barnyard dance board book. As the animals dance and sing they make their designated animal sounds. It’s a fun and silly book for toddlers and babies.

Noah and the Animals (Lift-the-Flap): This is our daughter’s favorite book right now. There are so many flips to satisfy her desire to participate in story time. The last page has 11 animal sounds and animals hiding behind the flaps.
