Boom Boom

by Sarvinder Naberhaus
Illustrated by Margaret Chodos-Irvine

Published by Beach Lane, 2014
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢴒424-34127

Ages 2-5

From the 揵oom boom of a thunderstorm to the 揵loom bloom of flowers, the 揵uzz buzz of bees to the 揷rinkle crunch of leaves and 搒wirl swirl of snow, a sense of whimsy and delight traverses the seasons in this picture book. The couplets describing sights and sounds of each season are set against colorful illustrations showing young children engaged with the natural world. Most of the word choices are satisfying for their onomatopoeia, but one surprising pair near the story抯 end is a perfect counterpoint: 揝ilent silent as the snow falls.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
