What Sound Is Morning?

Toddler-PreS–In the first light of the morning, all is quiet...or is it? What sounds are made in the morning? Listen closely, and you will hear the sound of lights clicking on, cats slowly creeping, the wind whispering in the leaves, a rooster crowing, and an old dog yawning, just awake from a dream. Morning also brings the sound of a baby babbling, sprinklers hissing on summer lawns, frogs croaking and splashing in a murmuring stream, and breakfast sizzling as hopeful paws tap the floor. The world is waking while the silent sun slowly rises. Snider explores both the unique and the universal sounds and silent routines that each new day brings. Simple text accompanies bright, warm illustrations to form a calm, moving book that is the perfect morning read-aloud, ensuring a gentle and positive start to any day.
VERDICT A beautiful companion to Snider’s What Color is Night? that encourages readers to slow down, greet the day, and fill the world with their own songs.
