Babble / Swoosh / Roar and WHOOSH!
The roar of a waterfall, the chirp of insects, the thump of a heartbeat—sound is all around us! Rhyming text and atmospheric illustrations present four children in different parts of the world who encounter all sorts of sounds.

"This beautifully illustrated rhyming text will make a good read-aloud and can be used to spark conversations about sounds in the world."—School Library Journal
