A little child wakes up one morning when he hears a curious sound. “Baaa” he hears and then he sees the wooly face of a sheep looking at him. Then he hears a growling sound coming from behind a chair. What could be making such a noise? Why it is a bear!

The little boy and his teddy bear go on to explore his little world both inside his home and out, hearing sounds and finding out what kind of creatures made the sounds he hears. On the two friends go until at long last the little boy hears a very familiar sound indeed - the sound of his own laughter.

Little children will love this cunning little board book, which is filled with sounds that they can make as the story is being read to them. They will also enjoy trying to guess what kind of animal made the sounds the little boy hears. With bright illustrations and a easy to follow story which engages the listener, this is a board book which is sure to become a firm favorite with little readers.
